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 past 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’s top sale is one of our very favorite contemporaries in Austin, and one we covered in November.
The jaw-dropping [Bracketed Space] House, designed by Matt Fajkus Architecture, with the design realized by Brodie Builders, features nearly 5,000 square feet of exquisite, inventive, and functional interior, stunning Hill Country views.
The five-bedroom, five-bathroom Rollingwood home has many artfully placed windows and window-walls, as well as floor-to-ceiling Fleetwood doors leading to the back patio, and that indoor-outdoor connection threads throughout the home.
The home was listed Nov. 2 for $3,495,000 and sold for $3,300,000 on Feb. 15, perhaps as a Valentine’s Day gift?
Located in Rollingwood, the home is currently listed with Realty Austin, asking $3,495,000.
• 100 Riley Road [Realty Austin]
↑ 4402 Hayride Lane. Since we’ve become weary of showcasing condos, townhouses, and other non-single-family homes as our least-expensive sale of the week (which is almost always the case), we’ve decided to filter those out in favor of this house sale in Southeast Austin.
Not only is the house close to the lovely urban retreat area of McKinney Falls State Park, it’s also a pioneer homestead in what we are told will be an up-and-coming area (Blue Genie Industries moved there recently, if that’s any indication, and it probably is).
The three-bedroom, two-bathroom house was built in 1973 and is, naturally, a fixer-upper. Nevertheless, it’s located on almost half an acre of land, and the price was right for either rehab or a teardown.
The property was listed on the market for $109,900 on Jan. 20 and sold for $127,829 on Feb. 16.
