Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various New Orleans neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,150/month.
In the Mid-City/Bayou St. John part of town, this 850-square foot, one-bedroom, one-bath shotgun was recently renovated. The details: heart of pine floors, reclaimed cypress doors and mantles, and "custom built transoms with stained-glass partitions." There's a private patio but the backyard is a shared situation, although, it can be turned into a private backyard with a "slight increase" in rent. Worth it?
↑ There's no square footage listed for this French Quarter one bedroom loft rental (probably because it's not worth mentioning) but who moves to the Quarter for a roomy apartment, anyway? There's a private patio, exposed brick, stainless steel appliances, and granite counter tops at this Gov. Nicholls/Decatur Street location.
↑ This edge of the Tremé/Esplanade Ridge shotgun has three bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,200-square feet of living space. There are washer/dryer hook-ups, pets "may be considered," and the landlord lives on the other side of the double (which can be a good or bad thing, depending what you're into). The yard seems to be missing grass, so those dreaming of their own personal mud wrestling pit may be in luck.
↑ Here's a Garden District studio on St. Charles Avenue for $1,100. Not everyone is a fan of the apartment complex living but those searching for extra security, or the idea of it, might appreciate the guarded, gated entrance. Other amenities: pool, courtyard, and dorm-style coin laundry on site.
