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!
Well. If our top seller this week was originally a model home for its fancy new Barton Creek subdivision (Amarra Phase III), we can only imagine what its unsullied but otherwise similar neighboring abodes went for.
The one-story, limestone home, at 4,773 square feet, sprawls boldly, hovering around the smaller end of the mansion scale. The newly built house has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms as well as two fireplaces, soaring ceilings, walls of windows, and spiffy fixtures and finishes. Located on a fenced lot that measures just under two and a half acres and backs to a greenbelt, the home also house a pool, spa, and outdoor barbecue area.
The home was placed on the market on July 27 asking $2.695 million and sold on November 5 for that price.
To take a look at the most affordable home sold in Austin in the past seven days, we return to familiar ground: Burton Drive in the East Riverside-Oltorf neighborhood. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo is in a complex built in 1973 that features a pool and ample parking; the downstairs unit itself has new carpeting and wood-look vinyl plank floors as well as a new air conditioner.
The condo was listed for $148,500 on September 7 and sold for $140,000 on November 2.
