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!
This week’s biggest seller, as in past weeks, is a fairly new and very large single-family home. However, its location in the central, historic Pemberton Heights neighborhood and its fairly classic design set it apart from the McMansions that tend to land at the top of the heap.
The two-story, white brick home measures 4,373 square feet and has five bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. It also has four living areas (if you include the one out back), fireplaces indoors and out, wood floors, and custom built-ins. The house has been completely remodeled, and the kitchen features all the upscale appliances and finishes one would expect, along with a butler’s pantry.
↑ 2530 Harris Boulevard also features an outdoor living area with a fireplace, a game room, study, a full guest casita, and a gated yard.
Listed for $2.79 million on Sept. 12, it sold on Oct. 19 for $2.63 million.
↑1000 Minnie Drive. Refreshingly, the least expensive home sold this week was not a condo—though it might well be a teardown. Located one one-third of an acre in the small Lakeland Park neighborhood and walkable to the Quinlan Park boat ramp on Lake Austin, the 680-square-foot home was built in 1960 and has one bedroom and one bathroom.
Originally placed on the market for $180,000 on March 20, it went through a price change and a de/relisting and sold on Oct. 18 for $150,000.
