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 home that fetched the most this week has the distinction of having been sold just today, if not the distinction of being ... distinctive. Located in a gated West Lake Hills community, the house backs to a greenbelt and has a view of the Pennybacker Bridge.
It also seems to have been owned by sporty/outdoorsy types. Among its features are a basketball court, batting cage, gym, and a pool with a diving board, slide, waterfall, and hot tub. It’s also convenient to Lake Austin There’s also a covered patio with a fireplace, outdoor grilling station, and refrigerator.
More pedestrian details include crown molding, plantation shutters, wood floors, stainless appliances, a large kitchen island, a fireplace, and built-ins.

↑ 2124 Burton Drive Unit 154 This condo was not strictly the least expensive home to sell this week (see that one below), but because it was in the second-lowest place and is a lot more interesting than the lowest, we’re showing you photos of it, too.
