From condos to a mid-mod ranch and even a modern farmhouse, here is a variety of properties in this budget range across North, South, East, West and Downtown Austin.

Dubbed by its listing “the best home under $1 million in central Austin,” this fully updated Cherrywood mid-century modern makes the claim tough to challenge. Its combined classic red brick, light wash wood flooring and cabinetry, high ceilings, abundant natural light, and big backyard make a bargain of its million-dollar price tag. Plus, it’s mere steps away from Mueller’s many parks, restaurants, pools, movie theaters, and Austin’s beloved Texas Farmers’ Market.

A rare find in Austin real estate, this 1940s Tudor contains classic elements of its architectural style — multicolored brick, leaded glass windows, a steeply pitched roof — without compromising modern luxuries. Original hardwoods are complemented by granite countertops, stainless steel appliances pair with Mondrian-inspired stained glass windows, and arched entryways seamlessly bridge between tradition and modernity. White walls make the spot ideal for the art collector, and the small lot boasts a surprisingly capacious backyard.
