Friday means it’s time for our weekly column The HIgh & the Low, wherein we check in on the most and least expensive properties sold in Austin in the past seven days. Let’s see what buyers and sellers got this week!
The top sale in Austin this week was this 2015 build designed by Baldridge Architects, one of Austin’s go-to firms for creative, winning takes on sleek-but-warm contemporary designs. Its work includes the former Gardner (now Chicon) restaurant, tiny hotel Kimber Modern SoCo, and a number of beautiful, award-winning residences.
The light-filled Tarrytown home has four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, and three living areas and measures 4,425 square feet. Big glass walls open up to a spacious backyard with a landscape design by Open Envelope Studio.
Despite the beautiful design, top-of-the-line fixtures and finishes, and tony location, it did take a while for the home to sell. It was listed for $2,350,000 in June and sold on October 15 for $1,866,000 after four price drops.
The least expensive home sale this week was of a property on the nicely named Thrasher Lane in Montopolis. The 1,146-square-foot home was built in 1945 and has one bedroom and one bathroom, but the listing emphasized that it was being sold as a teardown and on a cash-only basis. It was listed for $115,000 on Sept. 30 and sold less than a month later, on Oct. 20, for $110,000.
