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!
We featured this week’s top price-getter in November 2016, and it took several price cuts before selling this week. It garnered a little less than last week’s top sale, but the price was far from what most of us would call a discount.
Despite the the size and the price tag, the 8,388-square-foot home is fairly restrained and looks like it has had quite a few contemporary updates. Located on an edge of Tarrytown a few blocks from Lake Austin, it puts the emphasis on the outside and keeps the inside functional, if luxurious.
Designed in 1985 by noted Dallas architect Frank Welch, the house has four bedrooms and eight bathrooms. It also features two living areas, two dining rooms, a butler’s pantry, a dumbwaiter, four wet bars, two laundry areas, an office, storage areas, a silver closet,a vault, and a guest suite with private entry.
↑ 2518 El Greco.There are views from the three-story home’s rooms, decks, and balconies and a great deal of focus is on the 3,000 square feet of outdoor living space. There’s a resort-style pool and party/pool room with an especially fetching design, as well as a spa and dry sauna.
Placed on the market on Oct. 29, 2016, asking $6.25 million, it sold Feb. 7 for $2.95 million.
↑ 14201 Kincheloe Street. Located in the Austin’s Colony development on the just southeast of the city, the least expensive home sold this week is a modest single-family home built in 1987. Sold “as-is,” the home features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a breakfast area with bay windows, a breakfast bar, and an open living area with a corner fireplace.
Listed for $155,000 on December 5, it sold for $152,000 on Feb. 6.
