Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various New Orleans neighborhoods. Is one person's studio another person's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,800.
↑ This Lower Garden District rental is serving up some serious Victorian grandeur. An archway sweeps over the open living/dining area with pine wood floors. Pocket doors lead into the unit's one bedroom. The 1,057 square-foot ground-level unit also includes a small courtyard and dishwasher, and it gets location points for being a stone's throw from Coliseum Square Park.
↑ Right off Esplanade Avenue in Bayou St. John, this half of a double (not a shotgun) has really high ceilings and new kitchen appliances, central air and heat, and windows following a thorough renovation. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom, 1,200 square-foot space has a front porch and small back patio.
↑ There's a one-bedroom unit available in the Cotton Mill, the Warehouse District apartment building boasting some of the best outdoor amenities of its area cohort. This 735-square-foot unit has 14-foot ceilings, big windows, and an open layout.
↑ This three-bedroom, two-bathroom upper unit in the University Area house has a driveway, front screened porch, and washer/dryer. Seems ideal for the grad school crowd, but classy enough for a group of young professionals or small family.
↑ This positively huge house (2100 square-feet) in Algiers Point has three bedrooms, two bathrooms. A large, open living room has a exposed beams and minimal staircase, giving it a loft-esque look. The listing also boasts a "huge screened back porch" but unfortunately there's no photos.
