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 updated places for rent in Jamaica Plain—why not start off the New Year in beautifully renovated digs?

Below, peruse five renovated apartments for rent in Jamaica Plain.

7 Burroughs St. #4, Jamaica Plain
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,900 per month

Right off Centre Street and in the center of JP, this brand new building is well worth the $1,450 monthly rent (when split between two roommates). Ten-foot ceilings and huge, industrial windows in the living area and bedrooms make the place feel even larger than its sizable square footage. But if that doesn’t win you over, the stunning kitchen complete with quartz waterfall counters, barstool seating, and more cabinets than you can fill certainly will. Plus, an elevator brings you from the ground floor directly into your living room, and there’s balcony access from the kitchen.

240 Heath St., Jamaica Plain
Bedrooms: 1
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,300 per month

A three-minute walk from the T stop that shares the street’s name, this Heath Street coop is housed in a converted schoolhouse. Thanks to its history, the one-bedroom is long and narrow, with tall ceilings and oversized windows. Dark hardwood floors run throughout the renovated kitchen, bedroom, and spacious bathroom, giving the unit an ultra sleek appearance. Soaring white walls, meanwhile, are calling for an in-home art gallery.

238 South Huntington Ave., Jamaica Plain
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,450 per month

Just across from the winding Jamaicaway and bordering Olmsted Park, this unit sits on the top floor of its apartment building. The galley kitchen has been updated to include ample cabinet space, granite counters, and even an all-in-one washer and dryer—that means you can skip the step of lugging your damp laundry out of one machine and into the other.

456 Centre St., Jamaica Plain
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,350 per month

Even if you never left Centre Street, you could eat and shop in a new establishment every day of the week. Try Mexican street food at Chilacates for lunch and vegan ice cream at FoMu for dessert. In the hours in between, hunt for second-hand goods at Boomerangs and cooking supplies at Kitchenwitch. And when you get home, sit back and enjoy the skylit living room, eat-in kitchen, dining nook, and generally spacious quarters.

110 South St. #2, Jamaica Plain
Bedrooms: 2
Bathrooms: 1
Rent: $2,500 per month

Available now, this two-bedroom sits in an elevator building, a third of a mile from the Orange Line at Forest Hills, and steps from multiple bus lines, including the 38, 39, and 41. The apartment itself is entirely modern—think painted tile floors in the bathroom and an open kitchen centered by a granite island—but leaves plenty of blank space for the creative touches of a new tenant.
