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!
The property that fetched the highest price last week technically has a house on it (which it has to have to qualify for this column)—a rather nice-looking one, at least judging from photos of the exterior. Nevertheless, it’s obvious that the Far Northwest Austin home sold for more than $4 million for one reason: It’s a bucolic, 23-acre estate with a spring-fed lake, and swaths of manicured fields and stands of mature trees with two creeks running through it and surrounded by a nature preserve. The historic main house, a log cabin-style home with a pool and guest house, probably isn’t too shabby, either.
↑ 9415 Old Lampasas Trail was listed for $4.5 million on June 5 and sold for $4.25 million on July 6.
↑ 3011 Meldrum Street. This week’s most affordable sold property also comes with more land than one would expect for a single-family home of its size—it’s a 1,462-square-foot house on almost one-third of an acre. Curiously, the listing was posted with only two photos, although the street view shows a modest-sized house with nice landscaping on a road full of the same. The Del Valle home has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Listed for on June 18 for $109,950, it sold on July 11 for $109,000.
