Home shopping in five Austin neighborhoods

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount in various Austin neighborhoods. Is one person’s studio another person’s townhouse? Let’s find out! Today’s price: $700,000.

800 West Fifth Street #802, two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo, 1,478 square feet, $700,000, HOA fees not listed. Built in 2003, this Downtown luxury condo is literally one block from the Fifth and Lamar grocery-and-other-commerce zone. It has a private balcony with city views, high ceilings, stainless steel appliances, granite counters, and concrete floors.

2903 Cedarview Drive, four-bedroom, three-bathroom house, 2,162 square feet, $699,900. We recently featured this spiffy midcentury-modern home located Barton Hills, that mid-mod Austin hot spot. While completely updated, it features original-looking elements, such as the iron divider between the entrance and the living area, the bright front door with its narrow windowed, and the low, cutout brick wall that defines the lush backyard and its great patio.

915 East 49th Street, four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom house, 2.193 square feet, $695,000. Located in a northeastern corner of Hyde Park (part of which extends across Airport, who knew?), this two-story, single-family home was built in 2016 and looks more or less new. It’s a smart home with an open floor plan and 10-foot ceilings. Some of its features are Silestone countertops, stainless steel appliances, wood floors, a covered patio, and a private backyard.

1600 Barton Springs Road #3104, three-bedroom, two-bathroom condo, 1,520 square feet, $700,000 plus $636/month HOA fees. A large-ish condo located in South Austin’s popular Zilker neighborhood, this unit has an ope floor plan, wood floors, high-end kitchen appliances, and patios off the living area and the master suite.

4003 Wrightwood Road, three-bedroom, four-bathroom house, 2,379 square feet, $699,000. This fetching single-family home in Wilshire Wood was built in rustic-modern style in 1947 and has been significantly renovated in sometimes surprising ways. It has a spacious, open-concept kitchen/living area, a guest room with exposed brick walls. There’s also a boss backyard with a covered deck that features a ceiling fan and an outdoor bar.
