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?
↑ 200 Congress Ave Unit 28NE One of the two homes topping the list is a pricey condo, which is not something that often takes first place on this list. One of the Austonian’s newest units, it’s a recently finished, residence with northeast views of downtown Austin from the building’s 28th floor.
The 2,736-square-foot space has two master suites as well as an additional half-bathroom. There are floor-to-ceiling windows views of the Capitol on one side and a den and balcony overlooking North Congress Avenue on the other. The open-concept kitchen and other living areas also overlooking the vibrant heart of downtown. There are top-of-the-line finishes, common amenity space, three parking spaces, and one storage unit included.
The property hit the market in May, asking $2.7 million sold Jan. 4, for $2.3 million (plus $2,225/month HOA fees).
↑ 1901 Manana Street A .76-acre Lake Austin property took the other top spot last week. With approximately 100 feet of waterfront, large trees, a level lawn, a beach entry to the lake, and a private dock, it was clearly marketed for its prime, bucolic location. There is, however a 3,820-square-foot, two-story shell of a house, with plans for a four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom finish out.
Placed on the market for $2.4 million in October, the property sold on January 5 for $2.3 million.
↑ 12166 Metric Boulevard Apt. 161 On the other end of the week’s purchase prices is this one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo rebuild after a fire in 2010 (a rebuild that included a built-in fire alarm and sprinkler system. It has connections for full-sized laundry connection, 9-foot ceilings (popcorn-less), and is locaed in a complex with tennis courts, a pool, and a fitness center.
Located near the Walnut Creek Greenbelt, the condo was listed in November for $87,500 and sold Jan. 4 for its asking pice.
