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!
Whether or not this 3,205-square-foot new build in Bouldin Creek qualifies as a McMansion, as is the case with many of our top sellers, is an interesting question. It has the imposing front facade but lacks the typical square footage (5,000-plus square feet), its style is more contemporary than most, and it’s wedged on an urban-sized lot (0.186 acres) rather than presiding over acres of rolling prairie. Regardless, it’s on a row of similarly sized homes (or houses that will likely soon be replaced for them), so at very least it doesn’t tower awkwardly over neighboring bungalows, as do many new builds in the central city.
Built by Moazami Homes, the two-story house has four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, a smooth plaster fireplace, built-ins, European white oak floors, custom cabinetry, quartz counters, and many other luxury features, as well as a mod pool and private backyard.
↑ 708 West Johanna Street. The home was placed on the market for $1.895 million on July 24 and sold for $1.8 million on August 31.
↑ 1001 Valdez Street. The rock-bottom sale price this week went to a Montopolis property positioned as a teardown, listed August 8 for $195,000 and sold on August 31 for $170,000.
↑ 12521 La Paz Lane. The second least-expensive property on this week’s sales list is a single-family home in Del Valle that looks much more inhabitable, and pleasantly so. The one-story, 1,429-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It was listed on July 2 for $185,000 and, after a brief time off the market, sold for its asking price on September 4.
