Housing Hunt: What's Available in Shanghai

The search continues


This week's selection is each prettier than the last. Take your pick among a stunning one-bedroom studio next to the Jing'an Temple station, a loft-style two-bedroom that will be perfect for a young couple keen to plant themselves in the middle of Shanghai's most vibrant neighborhood, as well as a tasteful apartment housed in an old lanehouse in the Changning District.


Jing'an - 1 bedroom - 45sqm - RMB7,000

Located a mere two minutes away from the Jing'an Temple metro station, the apartment is beautifully decorated, and although not a very big space, is cleverly set up with a kitchen island that doubles as a dining table, clean white walls that help open up the room, and a comforting neutral palette that is easy on the eyes.


Changning - 1 bedroom - 55 sqm - RMB7,200

This apartment, housed in an old lane house on the corner of Xuanhua Lu and Fenggang Lu, is an 8-minute walk from Lines 2 & 11 Jiangsu Rd station. Large windows and glass doors mean the entire place enjoys plenty of natural light, and the decor scheme, a tasteful mix of faux marble surfaces, shades of grey and yellow, and light wood floors, is simple but beautiful.


Jing'an - 2 bedroom - 70sqm - RMB7,600

This loft-style apartment by Changping Rd station is equipped with a security system (how rare!), pin-card grate system, and offers 24-hour security and concierge services. It's been popped under the category of two-bedroom, but honestly it's more a two-sleeping nook arrangement, which still works for us. It's also only RMB7,600.


Xuhui - 2 bedroom - 70sqm - RMB9,000

This stunning two-bedroom at the Huaihai Zhong Lu hub is an vibrant mix of textures and colors, with a gorgeous, multi-color backsplash, coral pink couches. There's a tiny bedroom nook that is separated from the main living area with glass doors, and a second loft-style bedroom that overlooks the entire space. It's perfect for best friends to share, or a young couple.
