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.) Let’s see what buyers and sellers bought and paid for this week!
The biggest seller this week is, unsurprisingly, a McMansion, but of a variety that at very least gives it some distinctiveness. There’s a solid musical theme in the staging (grand piano, various stringed instruments—surprise, not guitars!—on the walls), as well as a sort of colorful, ritzy/razzle-dazzle look that it’s hard to put a finger on, architecturally.
Located on the Lake Austin, the multilevel, waterfront home in the Island at Mount Bonnell Shores subdivision, the 10,227-square-foot manse is located on an acre of landscaped grounds and has several terraces as well as a pool deck with lake and Hill Country views. Lakeside is a private dock and boat lift.
↑ 4705 Island Cove. The masonry-and-stucco home has five bedrooms and five bathrooms, as well as a dining room large enough to entertain 20 guests, a wine room complete with a fireplace, and an elevator—wrapped by a spiral staircase—leading to the upper floors.
Listed March 23 for $4.99 million, it sold Oct. 6 for $4.65 million.
As for the lower end of the scale, the two lowest-priced homes to sell last week were (sigh) the inevitable condos in East Riverside.
Since both listings contain a dearth of photos, we’re including both here.
↑ 2450 Wickersham Lane #905, a one-bedroom, one-bathroom, 750-square foot condo listed for $100,000 on Sept. 19 and sold for the asking price on Oct. 10.
↑ 2500 Burleson Road Unit 232, a two-bedroom, one-bathroom, 727-square foot condo listed on Oct. 10 for $120,000 and sold for the asking price a mere two days later, Oct. 12.
