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!
Admittedly, it seems a little weird (but not necessarily Austin Weird) to post about the priciest and cheapest homes sold during a week that was half holiday. Who buys a house the day before Thanksgiving, right?
Someone who (presumably) wants a home for the rest of the holidays that cute and cozy as all get out, that’s who. Oh and, preferably, one in Travis Heights. It’s a 1940 home that’s been gorgeously and somewhat quirkily updated (lots of cool kid space!) on a tree-filled, .32-acre lot that backs to a creek—a private oasis in the heart of the city, as they (realtors) say, a lot.
The three-bedroom, three bathroom home measures 3,495 square feet and features two stories, multiple living areas, an open kitchen, a spacious deck, and a screened-in porch. It was listed in July for $1.2 million and sold Nov. 23 for $995,000.
↑ On the other side of the ... William Cannon, we have this fixer-upper, which sellers apparently felt merited only one photo and sold “as is,” meaning maybe it’s more of a tear-down, who knows?
It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and measures 1,437 square feet. It’s convenient to Southpark Meadows and IH-35 and has a big, oak-shaded yard.
It was listed in October for $150,000 and sold Nov. 22 for $155,000.
