Rent in Boston, Atlanta, Denver: What $2,200/Month Can Get You Right Now

New, 10 comments

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various cities across the U.S. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $2,200/month.

↑ Boston, MA (1 bed, 1 bath)—With Fenway Park practically in its backyard (it's a 6-minute walk away), this sunny, centrally-located 712-square-foot apartment is easy to love. A cozy eat-in kitchen, bow window, high ceilings, polished hardwood floors, and renovated black and white tiled bath are some of the key features.

↑ Denver, CO (3 beds, 2 bath)—This charming 1890-built home is located in Denver's Potter-Highlands historic district, which overlooks the city from a hill to the northwest. The 1,400-square-foot home comes with all the comfort-giving amenities: a cute checkered kitchen, washer/dryer, loft storage, enclosed garage, and fenced yard.

↑ Raleigh, NC (2 beds, 2 baths)—With sweeping views of Glenwood South, apparently Raleigh's leading "hip and trendy" district, this 1,214-square-foot penthouse-level unit is all about open-plan living. Beyond obligatory stainless steel appliances and hardwood floors, the master bedroom comes with a balcony and a rooftop pool is just one floor away.

↑ Portland, OR (3 beds, 1 bath)—The little house that could! This 1,218-square-foot cottage doesn't look much like much from the outside, but the interior is done well by some spirited paint jobs and streamlined decor (and flattering wide-angle shots?) The home comes with a detached studio, driveway, and carport, as well as a fenced backyard with a deck.

↑ Atlanta, GA (2 beds, 2.5 baths) —If French doors and high ceilings are your thing, then this townhouse in midtown Atlanta is a stylish contender. The airy abode features original wood floors, a large master suite, and fireplace. It also comes with a charming patio.
