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.) How far did the pendulum swing this week, and what did it hit?
The holiday season might have seen its traditional slowdown in home sales last week, but the top seller, a Tuscan-style mansion/McMansion on Lake Austin, certainly went for a pretty penny, nevertheless.
The four-bedroom, six-bathroom home, built in 2008 and made primarily of stucco and stone, measures 6,642 square feet. It’s on more than an acre of land, part of it fronting the lake.
The house’s open floor plan overlooks a spacious covered patio, pool and spa, large trees and a boat dock.
As one would expect from such an estate, the home has luxury finishes, including stone and Alder cabinets, as well as a chef’s kitchen with premium appliances.
↑ The estate went on the market in early August for $3.8 million, changed prices a couple of times, and sold on Dec. 21 for $3.3 million.
↑ On the other end of the spectrum is an excellent, rather retro condo (or, at least, it’s in a rather retro complex, in a good way). Located in the North Shoal Creek area, near all the things on Anderson Lane near Burnet Road, it has a walk score of 71 and a 667-square-foot floor plan with lots of natural light and bamboo flooring. It has one bedroom and one bathroom.
It was listed in November for $155,000 and sold on Dec. 27 for $155,000.
