Welcome to the High & the Low, a Curbed column chronicling most and least expensive homes sold in Austin in the past seven days. (Data was obtained from national real estate brokerage Redfin.) Let's find see how far the pendulum swung this week.
↑ 2009 Far Gallant Drive—The top sale is a 5,976-square-foot, two-story home in Westlake with a Hill Country view and a canyon-edge pool. It has five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms, chef's kitchen, and a game room. Listed $1,549,000; sold $1,472,000.
↑ 2211 Woodmont Avenue—At 3,513 square feet, this three-bedroom, four-bathroom home is a two-story Tarrytown mini-manse with a super-luxe master suite that includes a fireplace and clawfoot tub. Listed $1,395,000; sold $1,240,000.
↑ 1000 East 13th Street—The East Austin home that was the third most expensive this week measures 2,523 square feet and has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. It also has a confusing listing that indicates both that it's "historic" and remodeled and built in 2008. It looks like it was built much earlier than that; best guess is that the remodel was pretty thorough. Listed $1,249,000; sold $1,200,000.
↑ 12166 Metric Boulevard #1007—Dropping down to the lowest-priced home sold last week, we find a one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo measuring 657 square feet. Located in North Central Austin between West Parmer and West Braker lanes, it's in a complex that looks to have lots of amenities and is close to many big local employers. Listed $89,900; sold $87,000.
↑ 1000 West 26th Street #213—The second least-expensive sale last week is a much smaller, much more central condo with one bedroom and one bathroom in 445 square feet (tiny/micro!). It's located in the West Campus neighborhood just east of Lamar and is clearly meant primarily for UT students. Listed $125,000; sold $127,250.
