High & Low: Austin’s Most and Least Expensive Homes Sold This Week

A midcentury modern, a 1920s traditional, and a Far North condo bookend the past seven days

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?

This week's top two sales were of homes we featured not too long ago. The highest seller is a renovated 3,918-square-foot, 1929 stucco two-story home with four bedrooms, four bathrooms, four living rooms, and two dining rooms between its main house and carriage house, along with a decent number of historic features.

↑ The traditional home was listed on December 18 for $2,495,000; the price was dropped to $2,295,000 in March, and it sold on July 19 for $2,255,000

↑ The second highest seller is a midcentury classic, once the personal home of well-known Austin architect Howard R. Barr, who designed it.

The 2,174-square-foot home has dramatic living and dining room areas, a central fireplace, and an expansive rear wall of glass with views of Lake Austin and the Pennybacker Bridge.

The 1950 home was listed on May 26 for $2,345,000 and sold July 19 for $2,130,000.

↑ At the other end of the week’s sales spectrum is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo with only one listing photo. The 657-square-foot unit, located in Far North Austin near West Parmer Lane, most recently listed on May 2 for $75,000 and sold July 21 for $72,500.
