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!
A high-end but otherwise unremarkable new build in the prized Old West Austin neighborhood tops the list this weekend. Built in 2008, the two-story, 3,844-square-foot home has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. Its features include mesquite floors, alder woodwork, stone flooring, and other artisan finishes, as well as a kitchen with commerical-grade appliances.
There’s an outdoor kitchen as well, of course, along with a screened outdoor living area and a pool with cascading fountains and its own private well (also used for irrigation). A new air-conditioning system, a home generator, and a water filtration system are the cherries on top.
↑ 2517 McCallum Drive. Listed on Sept. 8 for $2.175 million, it sold on Nov. 1 for $2 million.
Since the lowest-selling property this week, a teardown in Far East Austin with a sad-sounding recent history that sold for $71,000 on Nov. 1, is only technically a home, we’re going with the second-least-expensive one—a rather colorful home in Sendero Hills that the listing suggests is a fixer-upper rather than a scraper—for our lowest seller this time.
↑ 5600 Signal Point is a one-story, 1360-square-foot single-family home built in 1980. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Located in planned community, it has a covered patio and a carport accessible from an alley.
The home was listed for $125,000 on Sept. 14 and sold on Oct. 30 for $115,000.
