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 person’s townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $1,300/month.
↑ Rittenhouse Square (studio, 1 bath)—It’s a super cozy 366 square feet, but the apartment’s location puts you just blocks away from the square and in the heart of the neighborhood’s trendy restaurants. Plus, it’s cat-friendly, there’s a dishwasher, as well as laundry in the building. Rent is $1,350/month.
↑ Francisville (1 bed, 1 bath)—This 3,179-square-foot apartment takes up the third floor of this recently renovated three-story corner building in Francisville. The pet-friendly unit features modern finishes throughout, as well as easy access to a roof deck and laundry. It’s going for $1,250 a month.
↑ Port Richmond (1 bed, 1 bath)—This stand-alone home in Port Richmond is just a 1-bedroom, 1-bath, but it boasts two outdoor spaces: A side patio and a small terrace out back. It’s also been recently rehabbed, so there’s a strict no-pets policy.
↑ Spruce Hill (2 beds, 1 bath)—The top floor of this West Philly home is up for grabs and features hardwood floors, bay windows, and that sweet turret. Plus, it’s right by Clark Park and all the restaurants and shopping along Baltimore Avenue.
↑ Grays Ferry (3 beds, 1.5 baths)—You’ll have to wait until February to move into this recently rehabbed rowhome. Splitting the home between three would make for a pretty cheap monthly rent, and there’s a small back patio to enjoy when the weather’s nice.
