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!
A sprawling, 85-acre hilltop estate that we featured in March took the top spot this week. The 10,749-square-foot home, built in 1992, is perched atop a Lakeway hill with 360-degree views, which extend to Lake Travis on the north. It has a private setting and is also complemented by a pond and intermittent creeks.
The log house resembles a ranch or mountain retreat, with pine floors, custom woodwork, everywhere, and an antler chandelier or two. It has six bedrooms and eight and a half bathrooms, high ceilings, multiple living areas, and three fireplaces.
There are also outdoor entertainment areas wrapped around the house and a separate, 1,457-square-foot, two-bedroom guest house.
↑ 17301 Flintrock Road. Listed on February 3 for $3,999,000 (for the entire 85 acres with improvements—there were also options for smaller parcels for less), it sold Sept. 8 for $4 million.
↑ 7207 Ellington Circle. It’s refreshing to see a single-family home—rather than a condo, which is so often the case—was the most affordable residential sale this week. Located in the far northeast neighborhood of North Point, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home measures 1,210 square feet.
The home was listed July 19 for $168,430 and sold Sept. 8 for $82,000.
