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 most expensive home sold this week hasn’t been built yet. Since there are no fun photos to look at or make fun of, we’re not going to count it. If you must know, it’s a future three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom, 3,737-square-foot house at 8313 Carranzo Drive, in a Westlake subdivision. It was listed on Aug. 25 for $1,494,000 and sold on Sept. 29 for $1,496,493.
The first IRL house at the top of the list is the proverbial modern farmhouse (but is it really?) in South Austin. Located in the popular Zilker neighborhood (which should be fun for the next two weekends), the two-story new build has five bedrooms and four bathrooms and measures 3,049 square feet.
↑ 1703 Garner Avenue also has a gourmet kitchen with Thermador appliances and a luxury master suite with a private deck, high ceilings, natural light, and barn doors that lead to a bathroom with Moroccan tile, a walk-in wet room with dual shower heads, and a soaking tub.
Listed for $1.39 million on July 20, it sold for $1.35 million on Sept. 29.
↑ 2500 Burleson Road #719. We find the predictable and poorly photographed condo on least expensive end of the list this week. Located in the East Riverside-Oltorf neighborhood, the second-floor unit does have location going for it.
The 535-square-foot condo also has one bedroom, one bathroom, an open kitchen and living and kitchen area, and a brick fireplace. There’s a spiral staircase to the loft/bedroom and a soaker tub in the bathroom but needs flooring in the living room and loft and was priced accordingly.
Listed for $105,000 on Sept. 25, it sold for $100,000 on Oct. 5.
