Guess the rent for this two-bedroom Alta Vista ‘bungalow’

Let’s be honest, last week’s Guess the Rent entry was very rural. We were poring over the view from the front door, but was it worth the rent quoted? This week, we’re heading back to historic neighborhoods near downtown San Antonio for this two-bedroom, one-bathroom listing on Craigslist calling itself a “bungalow.”

I’m not sure the veranda is wide enough to deserve the title of “bungalow”, but we’ll let it slide. This home at 623 W Mulberry Avenue is only 950 square feet, so it’s small enough to be a bungalow. It is in the Alta Vista neighborhood near San Antonio College and the local gay district.

How much do you think it costs per month?

Let’s take a look inside.

Like most older homes in San Antonio, we have a fireplace.

You know the move. We start in the living room. Like most old San Antonio homes, you have a fireplace and built-in features like these bookshelves. This avoids having to buy more furniture.

Here we get a photo of the door between the dining room and the living room.

From this angle, we look down into the living room from the dining room, capturing a look at the doorway with a transom. And this light.

This fixture really stands out.

This light fixture is something else. Do we pay for this fixture every month? The kitchen appears to have been updated recently with new appliances and cabinets.

What would you call that?  The living room ?

How about this piece? I like the span of the windows. Do you call it a living room capturing a look at the shed in the backyard?

Nice contrast with this wood panel wall.

The wood panel wall is a nice contrast. This bathroom is a pretty solid update to what used to be.

I could go for a nice swing.

We end on the porch with a ceiling fan and a charming swing. The Post from Craigslist says it’s perfect for a small family or “students”.
