In an ongoing series for Curbed Austin, real-estate analytics site NeighborhoodX is taking a close look at sales price ranges in different neighborhoods. Today, it’s checking out numbers in the Rollingwood neighborhood.
Though practically in the middle of Austin, Rollingwood (like its neighbor West Lake Hills) is an incorporated city. Its eastern boundary runs along the border of Zilker Park and briefly on the western side of MoPac. The northern boundary runs just west of Stratford Drive (thus stopping short of the river), then zigzags south along Park Hills and Rollingwood drives. The southern boundary runs along and just south of Bee Cave Road.
Developed in 1945, Rollingwood is six miles west of downtown Austin, but has always been a separate legal entity and had a strong community identity. Residents are a mix of high-end homeowners, renters attracted by short commutes as well as Its numerous retail and restaurant centers, longtimers who moved there decades ago, and families who value the high-performance public schools in the Eanes school district.
The current average listing price in Rollingwood is $396 per square foot, and while there is considerable range, it is largely on the higher end. The most affordable listing in the area is $310/square foot (4914 Timberline Street, a remodeled hilltop four-bedroom asking $1.37 million) and it goes as high as $752/square foot (100 Riley Road, an almost 5,000-square-foot new contemporary we featured Thursday, going for $3.65 million).
