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: $1,450.
↑ This 870 square-foot one-bedroom Uptown boasts off-street parking, a side patio area, large fenced rear yard, high ceilings, hardwood floors, lots of closets/storage, floor-to-ceiling window in the front, deep soaking tub, and washer/dryer. Pets are considered on a case-by-case basis.
↑ Over in the 7th Ward, this newly renovated one-bedroom has 1,000 square feet of space. Historic features include transom windows, three original brick fireplaces with mantles, original red pine hardwood floors, and original baseboards and windows. It also has new, energy-efficient appliances and a laundry room with a washer/dryer. No pets are allowed.
↑ Coming in a little under budget at $1,400, this 1350 square-foot three-bedroom, two-bathroom in Broadmoor hasn’t been occupied since a recent renovation. New finishes include ceramic tile floors throughout, granite counters and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, and a full-size washer and dryer. There’s a fenced-in yard perfect for dogs, and luckily up to two pets under 50 pounds are allowed with a deposit.
↑ Among a row of townhouses along the levee on River Road, right at the Jefferson/Orleans border, for $1,400 you get a 1,100 square-foot two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom. The place features a wood burning fireplace, central air/heat, washer/dryer, a patio and private yard, off-street parking, and new appliances, carpet, and paint. Although this would be the perfect house for a dog, with its backyard and proximity to the levee, this townhouse does not allow pets.
↑ A 608 square-foot one-bedroom at the Maritime building in the CBD is available. Building amenities include concierge services, a fitness center, pool, and more.
