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 past seven days. (Sales information gathered from Zillow, Redfin, and Realtor.) Let’s see what buyers and sellers bought and paid for this week!
3605 Stoneridge Drive technically (and for quite a bit of dough, compared to the second priciest place) the most expensive residential sale last week was for raw land, which we don’t usually feature. The listing also doesn’t yield great photos.
Nevertheless, the sale of one of the few acreage opportunities that remained in West Lake Hills is an impressive one. The private, 5.463-acre tract (which the listing calls “estate-sized”) was marketed at a flexible lot that lends itself to erection of a custom-built home or for subdivision and development.
The property was listed on June 28 for $3,800,000 and sold Jan. 21 for $3,200,000.
↑ 1610 Chateau Avenue, a resort-like estate on 10.9 acres with more than 210 feet of of Lake Travis waterfront, was the second-biggest sale of the past week. It features panoramic views through walls of windows lining the back of the home, as well as expansive outdoor living spaces.
The 6,361-square-foot home has three bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. Built in 1984 and updated with contemporary finishes, the home has a game room, wet bar, study, exercise room and upstairs bed/flex room. A pool and spa sit overlook the lake and a large lawn.
Listed on Oct. 8 for $2,999,000, the home was reduced to $2,499,000 on July 21 and sold Jan. 11 for $1,900,000 (plus $242/month HOA).
↑ 2124 Burton Drive Unit 146, a townhouse-style, two story condo in the East Riverside-Oltorf neighborhood, was the least expensive home sold in the area last week. The 802-square-foot home has two bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms. The gated Tollgate complex which has a pool, easy access to the city bus system, and an onsite laundry facility.
It was placed on the market on Nov. 3 for $96,500 and sold for $93,000 (plus $259/month HOA fees) on Jan. 11.
