Bras Basah Road is considered part of central. Since it's in the town area, rentals here would be quite high. I've seen places like Aljunied (a little further away from central) where the rental for fully furnished (which is the owner's definition but is not that completely furnished) 3-bedroom HDB units can be around 1,800 SGD.

Good luck with your search.

S$1500 for a 3/4 bedroom HDB would be very tight.
