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!
While two homes we’ve featured in the past—a West Lake contemporary that went for $3 million and a $2.2 million Tarrytown home, also contemporary—came in at numbers two and three on our list of biggest sales this week, we missed the boat on the number-one position.
It was apparently “buy a large contemporary home week,” because last week’s most expensive home sold also fell into that somewhat vague design category. Like many popular houses of its ilk in town, it was designed by locals Dick Clark Architecture. Located in a gated community in the upscale Amarra Drive subdivision of the Barton Creek neighborhood, it’s a hilltop home with city, Hill Country, and panoramic views.
↑ 4611 Amarra Drive The 7,643-square-foot home features a casual, open floor plan focused on the center pool and outdoor living area.
The home has five bedrooms and six and a half bathrooms.
Details include Leuder limestone floors with wood accent walls and a gourmet kitchen with custom cabinetry, Miele appliances, and Dornbracht and Fantini fixtures.
Listed in February for $4,995,000, the home sold for $5,500,000 (plus $1,000 quarterly HOA dues) on April 25.
↑ 2201 Kale Drive The least expensive home sold this week has only one small photo with its listing, from which we can tell it is a single-family home with a garage. Located in Hornsby Glen subdivision in Del Valle, the one-story house measures 1,183 square feet and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The home, which the listing indicates was a foreclosure, was listed for $128,790 in February and sold for $132,000 (plus $250 yearly HOA dues) on April 28.
