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 this week’s second-biggest sale went to a historic home that, in our opinion, has a little more character than the top earner, the latter is certainly large and luxurious.
A 6,308-square-foot, two-story McMansion on (as the backyard “opens on to”) the Fazio Canyon Golf Course near Barton Creek Country Club, the top seller has five bedrooms and six bathrooms and features a kitchen with quartsite countertops, and a copper-topped island. Fine features throughout the home include leathered granite, special ceiling treatments, hand-distressed floors. The master suite has a private patio and two, and all rooms open up to the golf course.
↑ 8817 Calera Drive. In addition to the main home, there’s a private guest suite with separate entrance and an optional fifth bedroom/game room.
Listed in on April 21, 2016, for $2.79M, it sold after several price adjustments on Sept. 22 for $2.17M.
↑ 1840 Burton Drive, Unit 105. A fixer-upper condo in East Riverside was this week’s least-expensive buy. According to the listing, the 464-square-foot, one-bedroom, 1-bathroom home (which looks more like a studio) needs pretty much all appliance and most systems replaced. However, it’s centrally located and has Google Fiber installed.
Listed on Aug. 16 for $78,700, it sold for $79,000 on Sept. 27.
