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!
While we must admit this week’s second-highest seller, a modern-leaning remodel of a classic Tarrytown home that sold for $1.504 million on Feb. 15, is more our style. But there’s no denying that the top seller won the spot running away, fetching more than two and a half times that amount.
The top earner is a sprawling, 7,696-square-foot mansion estate on well over one acre of land in Barton Creek Preserve, atop a hill that provides views all around. It has six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, a 1,200-bottle wine room, a theater, an exercise room, and, of course, a walk-in, ventilated safe.
↑ 5221 Musket Cove. The two-story home also has a 1,200-square-foot, climate-controlled workshop than can be converted to two bedrooms or a “golf simulator room” (no idea). Built in 2008, it’s located in a gated community with a private golf course, a fish camp, pools, and tennis courts.
Listed on March 3 for $4.75 million, the estate sold for $3.845 million on Feb. 16.
↑ 2703 Northeast Drive Unit A, a condominium on the eastern edge of Windsor Park, adjacent to University Hills, was this week’s least-expensive home sale. The two-story unit has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms and measures 1,236 square feet. It was marketed as a fixer-upper, but with a living-room fireplace and a fenced backyard and patio, it looks like it has potential.
Placed on the market on Jan. 27 for $126,900, it sold for $115,000 on Feb. 15.
