Fridays bring the High & the Low, a Curbed column chronicling most and least expensive homes sold in Austin in the last seven days. (Sales information was gathered from Zillow, Redfin, Realtor.com, etc.) Contemporary new builds and complete condos ruled the day.

Giant rolling doors, patios, xeriscaping, decks, and pools were all big hits this week, as buyers snapped up fairly sprawling homes with lots of indoor-outdoor flow in Rob Roy, Tarrytown, Rollingwood, and Zilker.
Houses in Barton Creek, Old West Austin, and Rob Roy neighborhoods pulled in the big money this week. Most of the houses were new or fairly recent builds, with the exception of the 1915 Old Enfield area home that topped the rest by almost $2 million.
