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!
Located in the Caslano on Lake Austin subdivision, the week’s highest seller is, in fact on Lake Austin. Built in 2016 and measuring 6,137 square feet, the two-story home has five bedrooms and five and half bathrooms. Its 2.85-acre lot includes 255 feet of waterfront with a boat dock as well as a negative-edge pool with a hidden grotto. In addition to the tricked-out kitchen, there’s a separate drinking room with a wine refrigerator and wine-glass dishwasher. More traditionally, there are two living areas, two fireplaces, hardwood and tile floors, beamed cathedral ceilings, and fire alarm, security, and stereo systems, as well as many fine views.
Listed on May 23 for $4.775 million, the home sold on September 26 for $4.3 million.
The home that sold for the least last week (for $120,000 on September 21) is a three-bedroom, one-bathroom, 1,224-square-foot house that is pretty clearly a teardown or at least a formidable renovation project, located in the Craigwood subdivision in East MLK-183.
The second-least-expensive home sold in the past seven days is a little more typical of that category: It’s a three-bedroom, two-bathroom, single-family home measuring 1,325 square feet, built in 1996 and updated extensively in 2016. It’s a little farther out than the one above—in the Stoney Ridge subdivision southeast of ABIA airport.
The home was listed August 24 for $175,000 and sold on September 24 for $170,000.
