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!
This week is a little unusual in that the top and bottom sales were both of condos—one downtown and one off Metric Boulevard in Far North Austin.
More unusual is that the top buy is not located in the Austonian—being Austin’s current tallest building seems to attract a lot of downtown-view fans—but in the a different luxury tower, the W.
The 3.617-square-foot unit has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, along with big views and high ceilings, a media room, a fireplace, a chef’s kitchen, and a private master-bedroom balcony.
It also has all the requisite fine finishes and amenities and it’s kind of interesting to see how the seller staged it with fairly traditional decor, as most of the units in the building go mod to blend with the exposed concrete pillars and other industrial-style building hallmarks.
↑ 210 Lavaca Street #3701 was listed in May for $6 million, got a price drop to $5.75 million in November and sold April 13 for $5 million. (HOA dues are $2,914/month).
↑ Edge Creek Condomuniums, 12166 Metric Boulevard was the site of the least-expensive home sale this week, though the listing does not note which unit was for sale. The 599-square-foot condo has one bedroom and one bathroom. It’s located in a complex with a pool, hot tub, tennis court, fitness area, and club room near the Domain and Walnut Creek.
The unit was put on the market in February for $79,900 and sold in April for $76,000. HOA dues are $275/month.
