Apartment hunting in Boston is overwhelming for a whole slew of reasons—heavy competition, pricing, and spiraling out of control on Craigslist are just a few of them. So, for your convenience, we’re highlighting a few Zumper listings with one unique characteristic. This round, it’s places in Brighton that have been recently renovated—because Boston is a city full of history, but your apartment doesn’t have to be.

Below, peruse five apartments for rent in Brighton that have been recently renovated.

549 Washington St. #3, Brighton
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,100 per month

Available September 1, this one-bedroom unit still has that new apartment smell. Granite counters, dark wood cabinetry, and brand new appliances deck out the kitchen, while cool matte subway tile and a pedestal sink spruce up the bathroom. Air conditioning inside and a sunny deck outside top off these Oak Square digs.

28 Hunnewell Ave. #2F, Brighton
Bedrooms: 4
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $3,595 per month

We all know that in many affordable rentals, we’re just trying not to think about where that mark on the wall came from, or why the floor has to creak that way. No such thing is true in this lucky unit, which advertises all new everything: floors, paint, light fixtures, appliances, and even windows. Enjoy your fresh space, and a pretty stained glass window that was left behind.

6 Upcrest Road #2A, Brighton
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,800 per month

Leave your cramped galley kitchen behind and embrace this spacious eat-in, replete with ceramic tiles, stainless appliances, and granite countertops—and a dishwasher and disposal. All of the other rooms offer some generous square footage, too, though the real treat is the white wood-paneled sunroom, where you can enjoy some temperature-controlled sunlight.

65 Mapleton St., Brighton
Bedrooms: 5
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $4,300 per month

Situated a few short blocks from the Allston border, this five-bed unit is a nice walk to Boston Landing, Oak Square, and even Chandler Pond. The kitchen with more cabinets than you can fill is great, but best of all is the home’s spacious rear deck and backyard.

257 Market St., Brighton
Bedrooms: 3
Bathrooms: 2
Rent: $3,650 per month

Not only does this townhouse come with a private deck and off-street parking, but a stacked washer and dryer sit conveniently tucked away in their own closet. A pleasant mix of white and teal Shaker cabinets adorn the kitchen, along with a French door refrigerator, built-in microwave, and stainless oven.
