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 highest price this week was snagged by a “custom estate” in the gated community of Caslano on Lake Austin.
A 6,865-square-foot sort of hacienda, it has four bedrooms and five bathrooms, but most of its space seems to be taken up by multiple living and lounging areas, which makes it look a little like a hotel lobby.
The 2007 build has coffered ceilings with wood beams, a gym, a wine room, and ... a master closet featuring a kitchenette (!). There’s also 1,500 square feet of covered terraces, an infinity pool, an outdoor kitchen, a sports court, and panoramic views from a second-floor observation deck.
↑ Located at 13413 Shore Vista Drive, the estate was listed Feb. 25 for $2.25 million and sold a month later, March 24, for $2 million.
↑ The least expensive home sold last week is, predictably a condo at 12166 Metric Boulevard in North Austin near the Domain (aka “New Downtown”). It’s a nicely updated one, though, with new flooring, paint, fixtures, appliances, AC, and remodeled kitchen and bath.
It’s a corner unit and measures 559 square feet, with one bedroom and one bathroom.
The condo was listed March 21 for $94,900 and sold March 2 for $90,000.
