This pretty unit is proof that this price point won’t get you a lot of space in and around Hollywood. The apartment is small—it’s a one-bedroom that measures 570 square feet—but the trade-off is that it is stylishly updated with hardwood floors, subway tile, stainless steel appliances, and marble counters. Located in walkable Franklin Village, it comes fully furnished for $2,800.
If space is what you’re seeking, here’s a strong contender in Glendale. This Spanish-style home comes in at 1,022 square feet and holds three bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus a grassy backyard with an orange tree. The home is charming too, from the arched entryways to the fireplace, to the retro tiled bathroom. It’s renting for $2,725.
Two blocks from the Wilshire/Vermont station along the subway’s Red and Purple lines in centrally-located Koreatown, you’ll find this two-bedroom, two-bathroom pad. Bright and sunny, it features tall ceilings, a small balcony, and in-unit washer and dryer. It’s available for $2,800.
Here’s a delightfully charming two-bedroom, one-bath just off Fairfax Avenue. Walk to Canter’s, Jon & Vinny’s, and Council Thrift Shops. The garden apartment is replete with vintage tile, plus lovely molding and white and black checkered kitchen floors. It also comes with an in-unit washer and dryer, a balcony, and a single car garage. It’s renting for $2,895.
If this heatwave has you pining for ocean breezes, here’s a bright one-bedroom on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in Venice Beach. South of Venice Boulevard, it’s a short walk to hip restaurants and boutiques. It’s also just a short walk to the Venice canals and the beach. And, per the listing, a side yard offers “easy storage for your bikes and boards.” The building has parking and shared laundry. It’s renting for $2,775.
