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!
Sales prices seem to be plummeting this month—by which we mean to the low, low price of less than $2 million—presumably due to the annual winter real estate slowdown. The highest-priced sale this week was for a new, 2,843-square-foot contemporary in the south central Bouldin neighborhood with four bedrooms and three and a half baths: a size and location that seem like a bargain at any price, if you’re into that sort of thing.
On the first floor of the two-story brick house has an open-plan living area/kitchen, along with a tucked-away (but light-filled!) den and master suite—all with expansive windows overlooking primarily the private back and side yards.
↑ 605 South Third Street. There’s a linear stone fireplace in the living room, and the kitchen is packed with Thermador appliances and features walnut cabinets, a walk-in pantry, and marble counters. There’s small living area with a wet bar, along with more bedrooms and bathrooms, upstairs. In back is a covered patio and Ipe deck with stairs leading to the fenced yard.
The home was listed on Sept. 23 for $1.6 million and sold Dec. 5 for $1.5 million.
↑ 1748 Ohlen Road Unit 85. At the other end of the price scale, we return to the familiar condo sale, this one for a first-floor unit in a gated community in the central north Wooten neighborhood. The 770-square-foot home has one bedroom and one bathroom, vaulted ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, and a patio.
The condo was listed for $165,000 on Sept. 19 and sold for $152,500 on Dec. 5.
