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!
Last week’s big seller is a recently built Tarrytown McMansion that is surprisingly sleek and sophisticated on the inside, given its McMansion-esque tendencies on the exterior. Located on a large lot with mature oaks, outdoor living spaces, a resort-style pool and spa, an outdoor kitchen, and a pool/guest house, the two-story, stone and stucco home measures 5,739 square feet.
The open, light-filled interiors have 11-foot ceilings, large custom windows, and sliding-glass doors that connect the indoor and outdoor spaces. It has five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms and features stone and wood floors, built-in bookcases, and a fireplace in the living room.
The property was listed for $3.65 million on April 16 and sold for $3.45 million on October 26.
The most affordable home sold this week is also one of the newest—a one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo in a still-transitional but increasingly hip area of Central East Austin. Located in the new, multi-use Chicon building, the home measures 594 square feet and comes with gated parking, secure bike storage, and a balcony.
Listed for $150,000 on April 23, it sold for that price on October 31.
