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!
This week’s most expensive home sale broke the McMansion streak sustained in that category for several weeks. Not surprisingly, it’s among another group that often tops the sales charts: classic, stately mansions in Old West Austin. This particular beauty, built in 1938, is in the Pemberton Heights section of that long-established central-city enclave. The two-story brick home has 4,000 square feet within, as well as five bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms.
Remodeled in 2016, it also features an expansive chef’s kitchen with a bar, a large pantry/mudroom, and SubZero/ Wolf appliances. All the hardwood flooring has been refinished, and there is new hardware throughout the home. The grounds, naturally, are roomy, private, and manicured.
Place on the market on August 23 for $2.995 million, the home sold in just over a month, on September 28, for $2.7 million.
The week’s most affordable home sold is also from a familiar category for that status—it’s a condominium in the neighborhood known as the North Austin Civic Association/NACA. Also a two-story home, it measures 848 square feet and has two bedrooms and one and half bathrooms in a townhouse-style layout, as well as wood-plank flooring, a fireplace, and a roomy, pleasant-looking balcony deck off the master bedroom.
Listed on August 22 for $137,700, it also sold quickly—on August 26, for $136,500.
