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!
↑ 1701 Wild Basin Ledge. A brand new contemporary took the top spending spot this week. A two-story, Hill Country twist on modern style, the home has five bedrooms and five bathrooms and measures 4,094 square feet. Exquisite Hill Country Modern with wide open spaces and downtown views. It’s set on a 0.43-acre, fenced plot of land among towering live oaks on a quiet West Lake street with Wild Basin and Hill Country views. The kitchen has built-in everything (even coffee maker), and there’s a tankless water heater and a three-car garage. The luxury home shows an attention to detail and the use of rich materials, fixtures, and finishes. Listed for $1.95 million in October, it sold for $1.89 million on Dec. 12.
↓ 12166 Metric Boulevard. The least expensive home sold in the past week is a first-floor condo unit that backs to a field and hiking trail along the Walnut Creek Greenbelt in North Austin. The 657-square-foot home has one bedroom and one bathroom and is located in a complex with a shaded pool, hot tub, sports courts, fitness center, and clubhouse. It was put on the market Dec. 5 for $78,000 and sold quickly—on Dec. 15—for $78,600.
