Given that prime leasing season is upon Boston like a storm cloud, we thought we would run down five properties in four different areas for rent right this very second at two and a half grand. That magic number can basically get you an entire house or a 2-BR in the city, depending on location, location, location.
We begin with Unit 2 at 11 Searle Road in the increasingly amorphous borderlands of West Roxbury and Roslindale. It's an 1,800-square-foot spread with four bedrooms and one bathroom; and it comes with two parking spaces, one of them garaged.
This entire Colonial at 16 Heathcote Street in Roslindale proper brings 2,500 square feet, four bedrooms, and three and a half bathrooms. There are also two decks.
The second floor of 22 Kirkwood Road in Brighton is up for grabs as of last week. It's 1,452 square feet; has three bedrooms; and one full bathroom. There's shared laundry in the building.
Unit 3 at 7 Stedman Street in Jamaica Plain brings with it 1,100 square feet; garaged parking; three bedrooms; and two full bathrooms.
Out of Southie, near game-change-y D Street, comes Unit 1 of 132 West 8th Street. It's a 2-BR, 2-BA apartment over 1,000 square feet, with its own private deck.
