A five-year-old detached condo asking $575,000 already already has a lot going for it with a choice Bouldin Creek location. This one-bedroom, one-bathroom home also offers an open, modern design that makes its 705 square feet look bright and roomy—as does the outdoor living area, which comes with a hot tub and dining able and features a kitchenette, a gas fire pit, a outdoor shower, and custom landscaping and irrigation.
A two-story townhouse in Mueller isn’t a bad way to go for in this week’s price range, especially if space (1,829 square feet), location, and community amenities are your thing. This one, asking $569,900 and has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with an open-plan living-kitchen layout and hardwood floors downstairs. It also has an upstairs balcony, a patio, and two covered parking spaces. HOA dues are $155 per month.
Asking $585,000—a little above today’s comparison price—this nicely staged and remodeled single-family home in Cherrywood was built in 1949 but according to the listing has new everything contained within its lovely vintage bounds. The 1,290-square-foot, one-story house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms as well as a spacious yard and deck.
A single-story condo in the Rollingwood-adjacent Austin subdivision Treemont is asking $575,000 and comes fully furnished. Located in a gated community, the 1,378-square-foot unit has two bedrooms and two bathrooms and features a patio that has been completely enclosed with glass walls, making it a sunroom-style addition to the open living area.
Sure, it’s pretty far north (Balcones Village), but there are upsides: Round Rock schools, proximity to major area employers, and, as with many houses of its 1970s vintage, a lot of home (and yard) for the money ($575,000). The two-story, 2,416-square-foot house has also been remodeled in a way that addresses the outdated, formal-living/dining-room layout also common to its ilk and creates a contemporary exterior look. It has five bedrooms and three bathrooms, a huge backyard, and a zipline.
