Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for around a certain 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 with listings for today's price: $3,400.
↑ Big shocker here: one of the things that $3,400 can rent is a gorgeous view. This two-bedroom in the Los Feliz Towers has that in spades and is playing it up big-time. As classy as the kitchen and living room are, the bedroom seems to be pretty unimpressive. And of course, you live right on Los Feliz Boulevard, but this apartment seems sufficiently high up to drown out the traffic sounds. Rent is $3,350 a month.
↑ Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a garage "in the much sought after Toluca Townhouse Complex"? What a find! This bright unit on the Toluca Lake/Burbank border has a newly remodeled kitchen, wood floors, a private patio, tons of storage space, 20-foot-tall ceilings, in-unit laundry, and a communal pool. The rent is $3,300 a month.
↑ Okay, it's only a one-bedroom, but at 1,193 square feet, it's an "exceptionally large" one. This south-facing unit in West Hollywood comes with a doorman (like on TV!), valet parking, and guest suites for your overnight-guest overflow. (Which there very well might be because you only have one bedroom.) The monthly damage is $3,450.
↑ Do you have a noisy dog or a child learning to play the drums? Perhaps this house with only one other neighbor on a Glassell Park hilltop is for you. Located near the spot where the Glassellland sign once stood, the 2,576-square-foot house has vaulted ceilings, a deck, and a two-car garage. The rent is $3,450 a month.
↑ For the tenant who hates decorating and loves luxury, there's this apartment in a building that looks like a giant glass Stealth bomber, at Wilshire and Bixel in Westlake. Fully furnished and sporting "GE Appliances, Bosch Washer and Dryer, new carpet fresh paint along with hardwood," the two-bedroom, one-bathroom apartment also comes with 24-hour building security and a pool. Rent will set you back $3,500.
