What it costs to buy in Northwest Hills/Far West

Prices are climbing

In an ongoing series for Curbed Austin, real-estate analytics site NeighborhoodX is taking a close look at sales price ranges in different neighborhoods. Today, it’s checking out numbers in the Northwest Hills area.

Northwest Hills is bounded by MoPac on the east, state Highway 360 on the west, RR 2222 on the south, and Spicewood Springs Road on the north. As the name implies, it’s in the hills overlooking Lake Austin, and home to a mix of middle- to upper-middle-class residents who are attracted to the views, recreation opportunities, and easy access to retail, restaurants, and entertainment in almost every direction.

The current average listing price in the Northwest Hills/Far West area is $256 per square foot, and the individual properties that make up this average range fairly tightly around it, from $2/square foot (6008 Twin Valley Cove, an unusual-looking split-level asking $525K) to $383/square foot (4103 North Hills Drive, a remodeled 1963 four-bedroom house asking $1.15M)
