Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount in various Austin neighborhoods. Is one person’s studio another person’s Shangri-la? Let’s find out! Today’s price: $375,000.
A remodeled, ground-floor condo in Travis Heights has a fenced deck, community pool, and two-car garage going for it, as well as being pet-friendly. Located in a complex built in 1960, has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a fireplace, and a laundry room in 1,435 square feet. HOA fees are $525/month.
Curbed Austin recently featured this unique, single-family home and large property. Located in East Austin—more specifically, in the Govalle neighborhood—the one-story, frame home was built in 1950, has two bedrooms and one bathroom, and measures 672 square feet. A 400-square-foot deck connects the main home to a roomy-looking bonus room/studio/office/what have you.
Located in a contemporary complex just off South Lamar Boulevard in Zilker, this two-bedroom, one-bathroom condo is asking $374,500 ($500 less than the price we set this week), plus $205/month HOA dues. It has high ceilings, in-unit laundry facilities, and one covered, reserved parking place. Standout feature: It’s being sold furnished, or at least that’s open to negotiation.
This remodeled duplex in Brentwood is asking $373,100, with no HOA fees listed. That’s likely because buyers have the option of buying one unit (presumably the price listed above) or the whole building (no price is listed for that). It looks like there have been extensive upgrades and improvements to the whole building, from hardwood floors and paint to major systems and the roof. Unit B, shown above, has three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,066 square feet.
Buyers looking for a traditional, single-family home will find one in the form of this single-story, 1,588-square-foot house asking $374,000 in the quietly happening (for some time now) Pecan Springs/Springdale neighborhood. The three-bedroom, two-bathroom house, built in 1960, has been gussied up with wood and tile floors, an updated kitchen and bathroom, and other upgrades. Its large lot is located on a private cul-de-sac and has a two-car garage and a private backyard.
