Fridays bring the High & the Low, a Curbed column chronicling most and least expensive homes sold in Austin in the last seven days. (Sales information was gathered from Zillow, Redfin, Realtor.com, etc.) It was a big week of buying, so let’s see what all the fuss was about.
It wasn’t a week of particularly bonkers week for sales figures, but this home near the Estates Above Lost Creek (and, more importantly, on the edge of the Barton Creek Wilderness Preserve), at a sales price of $2,125,000, was up there.
Located on a one-acre-plus lot, the newly built Westlake home measures 5,092 square feet. It has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms and came with a $25,000 improvement allowance and first year of a Barton Creek social membership. There’s also an oversized waterfall, marble island, and infinity pool with oudoor fireplace and entertaining area.
It was listed on September 7 for $2,295,000 and sold October 6 for $2,125,000.
On the other end of the spectrum is a sweet-looking condo in the far north Crossing at Parmer Lane area near a Dell campus. The home, which appears to have been created by the remodeling of a 1980s single-family house, was completely remodeled and updated with attractive, contemporary materials and style. The condo measures 766 square feet and has two bedrooms and one bathroom, as well as high ceilings, and open fireplace, and a private patio area. It was listed on September 17 for $145,000 and sold October 3 for $140,000.
