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!
Despite the fact that the listing for this week’s top seller includes the information that it’s a “country neoclassical home set on almost 8 acres along serene Barton Creek”—in the Barton Creek Preserve, more specifically—there appears to be only one photograph of the property available. It’s a picture of a babbling brook cascading under a tree-covered hillside through the “storybook grounds” where the three-story, 8,370-square-foot mystery home is located on 500 feet of waterfront. It has six bedrooms and eight and a half bathrooms and has recently been completely renovated and remodeled in both opulent and casual fashion, according to the listing.
↑ 11937 Overlook Pass was listed for $3.625 million on April 7 and sold for $3.09 million on Feb. 12.
↑4228 Verano Drive. The second-highest seller provides a few more interior glimpses than does the home in the No. 1 spot. Also located in the Barton Creek/Lost Creek area, it has four bedrooms and four bathrooms and measures 4,648 square feet. The 2003 contemporary features glass walls throughout, high ceilings, a steam shower, a custom wet bar, and many upgraded features.
The home was put on the market Feb. 2 asking $2.195 million and fetched $1.993 million on Feb. 12.
↑ 1748 Ohlen Rd #81. A corner-unit condo in North Shoal Creek proved the lowest-cost home of the week. The one-bedroom, one-bathroom home measures 770 square feet and makes the most of it with an open-concept floor plan. It’s right next to the community pool and has a private patio as well.
The condo was listed for for $158,000 on Jan. 18 and sold for its asking price on Feb. 13.
