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!
Unsurprisingly, we find a very large, private, gated estate in West Lake Hills took the top spot this week. At least this one has had a remodel designed by local fave Dick Clark Architecture, so it shows a restrained style and thoughtful use of high-end finishes and features—including Venetian plaster walls and antique doors_not always found in such lavish (and pricey) environs.
This one also features a whole second-level kids “retreat,” which brings to mind a sort of Lord of the Flies scenario, though we’re sure the opposite is the case. There’s also a private guest apartment with its own full kitchen.
↑ 2916 Waterbank Cove, six-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom house, 6,952 square feet. In addition to the many rooms, extremely well-appointed kitchen, and wine cellar, the home has a a pool, a playground, and raised-bed gardens. The home was listed on May 11 for $4.25 million and sold on Aug. 1 for $3.95 million.
↑ 12166 Metric Blvd #125, one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo, 556 square feet. Also not surprising is that the least-expensive home sold last week is this condo on Metric Boulevard, a popular spot near The Domain, a number of employers, and an ACC campus. The economical home is located in a community with a pool, tennis courts, and a fitness center. It was listed on July 13 for $85,000 and sold on July 31 for $80,000, plus $275/month HOA fees.
