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 seller a the two-story home on a corner lot in Tarrytown. The 5,433-square-foot house, a 2006 build, has five bedrooms, five and a half baths, and many luxury features and finishes. Those include hickory and tile floors, alder doors, media and game rooms, outdoor living areas, and a jetted soaking tub with a fireplace in the master bathroom.
The contemporary traditional was put on the market April 12 for $2,500,000 and sold on July 5 for $2,357,882.

As is the norm, the seller of the lowest-priced home to go this week didn't spend big on photos, choosing to emphasize this one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo's Hyde Park location with photos of Quack's Bakery, Mother's Cafe, and Juiceland.
Nevertheless, the 500-square-foot-unit looks fine and homey, is in a complex with a pool, and is in fact very central, though fronting busy 45th Street.
The unit hit the market on May 23, listed for $154,500, and sold on July 5 for its asking price.
