New, 2 comments

Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a dive into the options available for a certain price point in various neighborhoods. Is one person's loft another persons's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $2,000/month.

Queen Village (2 beds, 1.5 baths)—This adorable home in Queen Village was recently for sale, but has shifted gears and is now on the rental market. It has three original fireplaces, hardwood floors, and 19th-century wooden beams. But the Trinity home has also had a few updates, including fresh stucco, new window frames, and updated bathrooms.

Bella Vista (4 beds, 2.5 baths)—Space, space, space. Imagine splitting the rent in this 3-story townhouse with three other folks. It features bay windows, hardwood floors throughout, an eat-in kitchen and breakfast nook, an unfinished basement, and a backyard. It's also within walking distance of the bustling retail and restaurant scene along East Passyunk Avenue. But sorry, no pets.

Spruce Hill (2 beds, 2 baths)—Located just minutes from University City, this apartment is located in the 4300 Spruce Condos community. The light-filled unit features French door style windows that open up into the courtyard as well as a small balcony. The condo also puts you a block from the neighborhood bar Local 44, CVS, and within walking distance of Clark Park.

Callowhill (2 beds, 2 baths)—This bi-level unit in the Buttonwood Lofts is 2,068 square feet. It features exposed duct work, a an updated kitchen, and a large living area downstairs. It's not far from the Spring Garden Station, Prohibition Taproom, and Bufad pizza, and if you've got a car there's gated parking available, too.

Rittenhouse Square (1 bed, 1 bath)—At 640 square feet, you'll be lacking space, but at least you'll be in the heart of Rittenhouse. This apartment in the Addison House comes fully furnished, as well as upgraded appliances and laundry in the unit. The bathroom has also been updated with travertine tile.
