What $2.5M buys in Austin

Which home would you choose?

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent or buy for a set dollar amount in various Austin neighborhoods. Today’s price: $2.5 million (or thereabouts). Vote for your favorite below.

Travis Heights

Via Compass

2301 Rebel Road

This two-story, brand-new contemporary may or may not be completely finished, but regardless it has an asking price of $2.35 million. It has floor-to-ceiling windows, an open first-floor living area that opens on to a pool and patio, and a third-story deck. The Tarrytown home features four bedrooms and four bathrooms in 3.409 square feet.


The Residences at W are reliably available and reliably expensive—this somewhat countrified condo is asking $2.6 million—which of course makes sense, given the building’s prime Downtown location. The 2,871-square-foot unit has three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views, luxury finishes, and amenities that include two parking spaces and priority ticketing for ACL Live.

Bryker Woods

Via Gottesman Residential Real Estate

3305 Oakmont Boulevard

The swank patio with an outdoor fireplace and a waterfall and the colorful sort of VIP/powder room are but two of the intriguing features of this two-story luxury home asking $2.25 million. Located in the Bryker Woods section of Old West Austin, the home was built in 2008 and has been recently remodeled. It has four bedrooms and four bathrooms in 2,861 square feet.


Back in South Austin, we find this new, one-story Zilker home asking $2.5 million. In addition to the sweet location under a canopy of heritage oaks, the house offers numerous luxury appointments and materials, including white oak floors, Venetian plaster, and high-end kitchen appliances. Also, there’s a 675-square-foot, two-car garage.
