Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a regular column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount (or thereabouts) in the Boston area. Is one woman’s studio another’s townhouse? Let’s find out! Next up is $1,850 a month in different Boston neighborhoods.
Unit 3 at 116 Marlborough Street is a 511-square-foot studio with a bed loft.
The electricity is included in the rent for Unit 3 at 384 Arborway (though that’s only if there’s no more than two people renting the place). The 900-square-foot apartment at the top of a Victorian includes two bedrooms and one bathroom.
A window AC comes with Unit 209 at 1277 Commonwealth Avenue, a 600-square-foot apartment with one bedroom, one bathroom, and one decorative fireplace. The rent also covers a parking space.
The 302-square-foot Unit 5 at 131 Park Drive is a studio with two closets and a separate kitchen.
We end in Roslindale, toward Boston’s southern end. Unit 2 at 35 Grew Hill Road is an 882-square-foot two-bedroom, one-bathroom that comes with two parking spots.
