New, 8 comments

From a tiny studio to a charming brick cottage

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 person's studio another's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,500/month.

↑ Minneapolis, MN (1 bed, 1 bath)—This 750-square-foot downtown apartment with hardwood floors and glass walls also offers city views out its "oversized balcony." Per the listing, the unit is also getting new stainless steel appliances installed this month.

↑ Pittsburgh, PA (3 beds, 1 bath)—The quality of these photos leave a lot to be desired, but it's still easy to tell this is a quite charming cottage. The tucked-away brick cottage comes renovated with new carpeting and paint jobs across its 1,586 square feet, plus a lush yard with a small "zen pond."

↑ Tucson, AZ (3 beds, 2 baths)—Though not the most historic or impressive of adobe houses, this 1,943-square-foot home still has its own modest charms. Namely: a sun-drenched tub, covered patio, and tiled flooring throughout (if that's your thing.) ?

↑ Detroit, MI (3 beds, 1 bath)—Located in Detroit's historic West Village neighborhood, this bright 1,500-square-foot half-duplex has been renovated to sparkling effect. The 1910-home still retains its brick fireplace and built-in shelving though.

↑ Washington, DC (Studio, 1 bath)—This studio apartment in D.C.'s Adams Morgan neighborhood looks cozy and well-equipped, never mind it's just 362 square feet and the washer and dryer are right by the stove. The tiniest kitchen bar is super cute, plus the building comes with a rooftop deck.
