When it comes to unusual rental listings, we're more than a little bit obsessed with carriage houses. They're historic, mysterious, and offer a cheaper means by which to live in an otherwise pricy area—remember the West Canfield listing? That, and they're often accessible only through a spooky alleyway (a charming brick alleyway in this case). What's not to like? Hidden behind an Indian Village mansion under a blanket of ivy, this 740-square-foot carriage house piles on the amenities: Free Wi-Fi, cable, electricity, a washer/dryer, plus garage parking right beneath your bedroom. Rent: $825/month.
