Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for a certain dollar amount in various Philly neighborhoods. This week, we’re checking out homes at or around $2,200 a month, and there’s a lot of variety when it comes to both style and space.

OCF Realty, via Craigslist

Brewerytown (4 bed, 2 bath)—Nestled on the edge of Fairmount and the increasingly popular Brewerytown neighborhood, this 2622 Poplar Street bi-level offers tall windows, hardwood and carpeted floors and—arguably the biggest draw—four whole bedrooms at the $2,200 price point.

OCF Realty, via Craigslist

Rittenhouse Square (2 bed, 2 bath)—The listing for this 331 South 18th Street home, which is just a few blocks from Rittenhouse Square, describes it as having “lots of character” and you can see why. Along with the intricate, carved wood fireplace, there’s a large stained glass window, and a kitchen with a food-themed tile backsplash. There’s also a private entrance and laundry in unit.

Via Craigslist

Spring Garden (2 bed, 1 bath)—At 17th and Green Street, this two-bed bi-level is in the heart of the popular Fairmount/Spring Garden neighborhoods. It has a long main room with granite countertops, skylights, and access to a roof deck with some killer Center City views.

Temple Lofts, via Craigslist

North Central (3 bed, 2 bath)—A sleek apartment in the newly renovated Temple Lofts apartment building, this three-bed home on 1419 West Allegheny has gated parking, access to a fitness center, and a close proximity to the Broad Street line for easy commuting.

Northern Liberties (2 bed, 1.5 bath)—At 833 North 4th Street, this home is another newly renovated space, with a brand new kitchen, one car parking, and an outdoor patio. The living spaces are all on the first floor, while the second floor offers two bedrooms. Plus there’s great curb appeal on the small, tree-lined street outside.
