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: $2,000/month.
On Dauphine Street in Bywater, this 1,400-square-foot, two-bedroom, two-bath rental is a newish construction, built in 2008 and designed by noted architect Andrés Duany. The details: Hardwood floors on the first floor, seagrass carpeting in the loft, stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, 12-foot ceilings, shelving in the stairwell, a small private deck, and the place comes with a washer and dryer. Landscaping services are included and there's a shared parking set-up in the back of the property.
↑ The owner of this renovated shotgun double on N. Alexander Street in Mid-City lives on the other side so party animals, beware. The two-bedroom, one-bath home has 1,350-square-feet of space, original pine flooring, 12-foot ceilings, a six-foot walk-in shower (no tub, though), and a nice inground saltwater pool. Smokers and pet owners are out of luck here.
↑ Uptown near Audubon Park, the downstairs unit of this 1,400-square-foot Henry Clay Avenue rental has three bedrooms (one is a walk-through), one-and-a-half bathrooms, hardwood floors throughout, and a kitchen that looks like it's on the small side. There is a washer/dryer that's shared with the upstairs tenant.
↑ On Constance Street in the Lower Garden District is half of a double with two bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, and about 3,000-square-feet. Per the listing, the three-level rental "includes all the bells and whistles" such as granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, custom drapery, marble floor bathrooms, and a washer and dryer. Perks include off-street parking (remote control entry!) with enough room for three cars, and a private backyard where landscaping is taken care of. Pets are "possibly allowed" with an $800 non-refundable pet deposit.
↑ This Marigny Triangle rental is a two-bedroom, one-bath freestanding home on Burgundy Street with a mint green tiled kitchen, hardwood floors, and fresh paint (with the paint cans in the pics as proof, of course). The 1,800-square-foot space comes with a sunroom and a backyard brick patio. Pets are a maybe.
