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. Last time, we rounded up two-bedroom apartments with a monthly rent of $2,000; this time, it’s cute studios in Somerville—because there are plenty of sweet options for living alone in the city.

Below, peruse five studios for rent in Somerville.

 

 

Highland Ave. #11, Somerville
Bedrooms: Studio
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,315 per month

As much as we love the quirks and character of an old Somerville pad, a modern renovation is always nice, too. This one is replete with sleek hardware-free cabinetry, a stainless steel fridge, microwave, and oven, and an electric glass cooktop in its one-wall kitchen. The cluster of nearby bus stops, including the 85, 87, 88, and 89, are convenient, as is the in-building laundry.

136 Highland Ave. #19, Somerville
Bedrooms: Studio
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,830 per month

This cat-friendly home is available for a rare November 1 move-in, and is even open to students who are still looking for housing. Inside, a breakfast bar partitions the granite-countered kitchen off from the living area without making either seem cramped. Though the unit itself offers some great storage space, the building also comes equipped with laundry units, bike storage, and a shared patio for all tenants.

Banks St. #3, Somerville
Bedrooms: Studio
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,400 per month

While some A-frame ceilings can make the space feel as if it’s closing in, others have a way of opening up a room. This top-floor studio manages to achieve the latter, with several skylights, hardwood floors, and a clever use of tight nooks. Though separated only by a triangle of wall, the living area, which comes with a built-in AC unit, appears separate from the bedroom, which has direct access to a petite private deck. Ready for move-in anytime now, this building is a quick quarter of a mile from Porter Square.

10 Roberts St. #32, Somerville
Bedrooms: Studio
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,550 per month

No need to loop three times around the block searching for street parking. Available now, this carpeted apartment comes with its own parking spot. Perched on a dead-end street in Magoun Square, this unit is within a mile or so of Porter, Davis, and Ball Squares, which means several options for public transport as well as endless spots for dining out and cute streets for wandering down.

44 Central St., Somerville
Bedrooms: Studio
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $1,400 per month

Cats are free to pad around this Spring Hill studio, which sits within a block of three bus stops, and under a mile from the Red Line at Porter Square. The room is open and sunny, with a corner of built-in shelves enclosed by a glass-paned door for pretty and tidy storage. Heat and hot water are a part of the deal for this apartment, and there’s no broker fee required.

Note: Although Zumper’s apartment inventory is updated in real time, these listings are not guaranteed to be available. Check in with a listing’s leasing office to confirm availability and to schedule tours.
