Welcome 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: $6,450 and up.
↑ Fully restored in 2013, 1437 Urania dates back to the 1850s. According to Latter and Blum as well as Felicity Property Co, this three bedroom, two and a half bath comes fully furnished and with enough space to further sublet the rental, provided the owner is cool with it. Glamorous chandeliers and fireplaces abound in this spacious Greek Revival. $6,450 a month gets you a luxurious glimpse into historic New Orleans living .
↑ 450 Julia St has a rather fascinating history — once an undertakers office, then a coffee factory, and now nine units of ultra-luxurious condos. One such condo, 450 Julia Apt #3D, hits the rental scene at $6,500 a month for two bedrooms and three and a half baths. The only condo on our list, it provides typical condo amenities including utilities, cable, and internet included in your rent. This CBD condo offers abundant exposed beams and a rustic style that feels far, far away from the bustling corner of Julia and Magazine St below.
↑ This relatively unassuming Uptown duplex is nothing like its drab exterior belies. An open floor plan allows for lots of space and natural light as well as storage — the walk-in closet is absolutely monstrous, as is the master suite it's attached to. Yet another luxury rental with a gourmet kitchen, 1732 Palmer Ave can also mark down location as a prime selling point. $6,500 a month gets you a gorgeous four bedroom, four and a half bath multi-level home with its own elevator just steps away from Audubon Park.
↑ This circa 1847 cottage in the Garden District comes with its own guesthouse as period-appropriate furniture and antiques. 1433 Philip St sits on an insanely large lot that contains an MTV cribs-style array of amenities — saltwater pool, putting green, and lots and lots of parking for your Bentley or Benz. Its interior has been lovingly restored and offers more than enough space with four bedrooms and four and a half baths as well as a gourmet kitchen and BBQ. $15,000 a month gets you this five bedroom, six and a half bath behemoth of a rental.
↑ Exactly one year ago, we brought you this hyper-luxurious $20,000 a month Uptown rental along with one other equally priced, equally fancy home for Renters Week 2013. It appears all this waiting for a tenant has seriously gotten to 1463 Nashville Ave because their current listing is kind of a wreck. All caps text describes what we already knew from our post last year — that this four bedroom, seven bathroom home has been occupied by VIP Hollywood tenants, that it's got a study with library panels like all regal old rich homes, and that it's got that signature glass mosaic saltwater pool which you can barely see in its new cut off and crappy photos. No clear indication on whether or not they want a $20,000 security deposit like before but good luck drumming up $40K for a rental.
