Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for a set dollar amount in various Los Angeles neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Our friends at Zumper have helped us out finding listings for today's price: $3,000.
↑Go Westwood, young man or woman, and find a top-floor corner apartment with a crazy view. Limestone floors, a fancy Sub-Zero in the kitchen, and a full bathroom with so much marble you're afraid you'll fall and never get up—this spacious two-bedroom has all of that. (There's a much safer half bathroom as well.) Bonus: a pool. It's all yours for $2,990 a month.
↑ If you and your horse have been looking for a place to accommodate you both, look no further: this owner's open to having one or two horses (for a fee) on this property, located in the quiet, equine-friendly Burbank Rancho neighborhood. The two-bedroom house has a large covered backyard patio and a very pink tiled bathroom. Don't like the furniture? That's okay: it's being rented unfurnished. The monthly rent of $2,850 does include a gardener.
↑ Winning the award for coolest address is this spacious two-bedroom duplex unit on Commodore Sloat Drive in Carthay Circle. The exposed beams, wood floors, stained glass accents, and (non-functional) fireplace lend this place some serious charm, but the updated kitchen keeps things from getting too rustic. The owner "has taken numerous steps to soundproof each unit," so go ahead, yell at the TV. Rent is $3,100 a month.
↑ It's not the most exciting-looking place, but this Brentwood condo is spotless, and spacious at nearly 1,500 square feet. It's also got two covered, tandem parking spaces (so you'll only be blocking yourself in?). The two-bedroom, two-bathroom has a minibar and a community pool, so with a few boxes of wine, it could easily become a party pad. Rent is $2,900 a month.
↑ A house that has "all the comforts of home," this 1,772-square-foot single-story abode has inside laundry, wood floors, granite countertops in the updated kitchen, and, from the looks of the soot in the photo, a working fireplace. A two-car garage, paid gardeners, and a backyard with lawn reinforce the place's staunchly suburban feel. This is Sherman Oaks, after all. Rent for this three-bedroom, two bathroom house is $3,295 a month.
