Take a drive east down MLK, cross 183/Ed Bluestein Blvd to where MLK becomes 969. A little over 1 mile past 183/Ed Bluestein, take a left onto Sendero Hills Parkway and you have arrived at Agave Phase I.
The neighborhood rises like an oasis on the hills. The statuesque palms (those that remain post the 2021 freezemageddon) and the Hill Country native plants stand in front of colorful, contemporary houses. The streets meander through builds featuring stucco, wood, metal, and glass. Each house has its own unique personality. Many have views facing west where the lights from downtown at night beckon in the distance.
We are what you might say, just far enough from the madding crowd to find quiet refuge from the hustle, and often overwhelmed streets of Austin proper.
After two years of construction hibernation, Agave is back into the activity of building new homes. Agave Phase II, a more uniform community of white, grey, and beige with a splash of color contemporary homes has exploded over 35 new dwellings and on my street (Agave Phase I) there are 4 new houses currently under construction.
As a realtor and market educator, Eastside is not untouched by the rising rents and housing demands. Having completed a Q2 market report of sold homes for the Eastside (April-June), activity has been robust - 249 homes sold in the East Austin area. Highlighting the lowest sold price was $405K at 116% of list price on Edgedale Drive and the highest sold price was $1.845M at 95% of list price on Camacho Street. Two noted of the 253 was an Agave Phase II home on Tosana selling for $835K at 101% of the list price and an older home in Agave on Pinon Vista for $425K at 99% of the list price. Overall average of the 249 Eastside homes reported sold in the past 90 days was $721K at 102% of list price.
