↑ This week's pricey Curbed Comps basically amounts to an all-Westside edition (with one exception), but even staunch Eastsiders might take a second look at this two-bedroom split-level in a new-ish building just off the main drag in downtown Culver City. The apartment's 20-foot ceilings and two terraces are yours for the "REDUCED!!" price of $3,895 a month.
↑ This third-floor unit has three bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms within a stone's throw of Brentwood (but is actually in Sawtelle). It's also got on-site laundry, a balcony, a working fireplace, built-in cabinets, an incredible amount of shelving in the walk-in closet, and two parking spots plus storage space. All this for $3,950 a month.
↑ Go completely suburban in this Sherman Oaks house in a quiet neighborhood close to the Deervale-Stone Canyon Park. There are some recent upgrades to this traditional-looking three-bedroom house, especially in the kitchen and bathroom, plus a grass-light backyard and gated driveway parking. The rent is $3,950.
↑ Serious shoppers might only need to know that this two-bedroom, two-bathroom in Westwood is "about 700 feet from the entrance to the Century City Mall." Those who need more convincing might be swayed by the maple plank floors and high-end appliances (including new washer/dryer in-unit) in this apartment in a 2013 building. The rent here is $3,950 a month.
↑ Attention, eco-conscious renters: get your low-flow toilets, tankless water heaters, and dual-paned windows here! There are stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, in-unit washer/dryer, and high ceilings in this 1,300-square-foot West Hollywood unit, too. In addition to two bedrooms and two bathrooms, renters will have storage and two parking spots underground. Rent for this apartment just a few blocks west of Santa Monica and Crescent Heights Boulevards is $3,900.
