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!
Once again, last week’s home sales were a tale of the west—and the north. The big get is, disappointingly, not one of Austin’s more interesting luxury homes. Some might call it a McMansion, and they wouldn’t be wrong.
On the upside, it’s located in the exclusive Spanish Oaks community, not far from Bee Cave. It’s also on almost an acre and a half of private, fenced land, making it a “luxurious resort-like estate,” by local standards. It’s many, many features include big views, two outdoor kitchens, and a flagstone entrance courtyard with a fireplace.
↑ 11500 Musket Rim Street, five-bedroom, five-and-a-half bathroom house, 6,234 square feet. Other amenities advertised include iron doors, balconies, expansive indoor and outdoor entertaining spaces, a pool/spa, and interiors with high-end materials and finishes, including travertine, oak, ceiling treatments, chandeliers, and built-ins. There’s also a guest casita.
Listed April 7 for $2,350,000, sold July 27 for $1,985,325.
↑ 12166 Metric Boulevard #3003, one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo. 657 square feet. On the more economical end of last week’s home sales, we find a top-floor in Far North Austin, close to the ever-increasing office and retail development. It has a large balcony, nine-foot ceilings, a walk-in closet, and washer/dryer connections.
Listed June 20 for $93,500, sold July 24 for full asking price.
