It's time again for the High & the Low, a Curbed Austin column chronicling the most and least expensive homes sold in Austin in the last seven days. (Sales information gathered from Zillow, Redfin, and Realtor.) Let’s see what buyers and sellers bought and paid for this week!
For the second time in just over a week, the top sales winner is a quite large home located on Westlake Drive. At 10,608 square feet, this one’s even bigger than last week’s, but both have their generous Austin frontage in common.
This particular waterfront estate is located on almost four acres and has two boathouses with a total of seven slips (which seems kind of show-offy, but we’re not the target market). There are wide, flat yards and gardens leading to the waterfront, as well as a pool terrace, yard and enclosed swimming area within the lake. (There’s a regular posh swimming pool up by the house, as well, of course.)
↑The six-bedroom, eight-bathroom home showcases a two-story foyer, wine cellar, elevator, and gourmet kitchen. There are marble, natural stone, and mesquite floors throughout, as well as a separate Guest House.
The home spent a couple of months on the market, listed at $14.2 million in September and sold for $11.5 million on November 15.
↑ On the other end of this week’s sales scale is a Cherry Creek studio that, while its seller clearly didn’t spring for fancy photography, looks to be in great shape and to have amenities including stainless appliances, a fridge, and a stackable washer/dryer. The listing advertised a quiet, peaceful community, along with laminate and tile floors, a new HVAC system, and lots of storage, including a big, walk-in closet. There’s also a patio.
The condo was listed Sept. 29 at $94,000 and sold Nov. 15 for $875,000.
