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!
Like many pricey lakefront estates in these parts, the biggest seller this week is all about the property, the amount of lake frontage, the dock and boat slip(s), and possibly some views. In other words, not so much about the house.
Nevertheless, the two-story main home on this property measures a certainly not-measly 4,964 square feet and has six bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. Developed in 1991, the property has two homes on 3.7 acres with 300-plus feet of deep-water frontage, as well as a 2,036-square-foot guest house. Both homes have panoramic views and a gentle slope to the water.
↑ 7096 Comanche Trail. Placed on the market for $2.3 million on May 18, the home was sold on Nov. 8 for $1.978 million.
↑ 1840 Burton Drive, Apt. 178. We return to the familiar East Riverside-Oltorf neighborhood to check out the least-expensive sale of the week. A one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo with a galley kitchen and bar that looks out over a private balcony, the unit also has a large walk-in closet and new stove, cabinets, counters, and bathroom tiles.
Placed on the market on $109,900 on August 21, the home went through a couple of price changes and sold on Nov. 9 for $96,000.
