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 is a bit of a departure in that it was an elegant downtown condo, rather than a subdivision McMansion that brought in the highest sales price. A unit on the southwest corner of the W Residences, the place is “redesigned to feel like a penthouse,” whatever that means.
It does have a dramatic open plan with lake and city views and such luxury features as wide-plank walnut hardwood floors throughout and a gourmet kitchen with white Carrara marble countertops, Miele appliances, a wine refrigerator, Bulthaup cabinetry, and a custom butler's pantry.
The condo also features two outdoor living areas and a separate service entrance and storage.
↑ 210 Lavaca Street #2805. The unit measures a whopping 3,498 square feet and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, Lutron lighting, and a home automation system. It was listing on June 12 for $3.196 million and sold on Oct. 23 for $3.113 million.
↑ 2018 Rundberg Lane Unit A. This week’s lowest-priced home sale was also a condo, and a rather nice-looking one at that. Located in the hopping North Austin area near the Domain, the two-story, 906-square-foot unit was advertised as having “no popcorn ceilings”—a surefire winner in our book. The two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom home has stained concrete ground floors and new carpet upstairs, built-in bookshelves, a wood-burning fireplace, and a covered side patio.
The condo was listed for $130,000 on Sept. 28 and sold for $131,000 on Oct. 25.
