With real estate in Austin surging and new transplants clamoring to get a piece of charming city property, demand is higher than ever to live in Austin. While condos within city limits come in a variety of price ranges, there is no shortage of fancy living in the Live Music Capital of the World.

Here are seven of Austin's most elite residences.

Got a hankering for stellar city views and $5 million burning a hole in your pocket? This three-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom condo on 98 San Jacinto Blvd. clocks in at 4,208 spacious square feet and is within walking distance from Lady Bird Lake.

Perch yourself inside any one of this 26-story highrise's high-end rooms: a formal living room, kitchen, dining room and bedrooms all complete with floor-to-ceiling windows, marble bathroom and living areas with ornate wallpapers and light fixtures. Of course, no downtown condo is complete without a terrace… or two; one for your guests and one for yourself. Speaking of guests, the condo has two spacious bedrooms with bathrooms en suite in addition to the master suite. If you run out of room to house your guests, you could always make room in the expansive walk-in closet!

The Austonian, listed for $4,990,000

Coming in just $5,000 below that of the Four Seasons, this Austonian condo is two years newer and just a touch bigger at 4,306 square feet. Well-suited to those with plush taste, 200 Congress Avenue gives you panoramic views of the Texas Capitol building from its enormous balcony. With three-bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms and a designated office for work from home, this condo comes with clean lines, custom cabinetry and an open floor plan for those who love to entertain.

Famously home to Austin Mayor Steve Adler, this 3,147 square foot residence is a modern architecture lover's dream. This penthouse condo, complete with another set of three bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms, will have you feeling luxurious as you relax in the glass steam shower or watch your favorite show from a hidden flat-screen TV. The condo comes with a private three-car garage with a Tesla charger, automated window shades and a gourmet kitchen with a custom glass breakfast nook to start your mornings off right. The handcrafted lit-up floating shelves will show off all your trinkets like you live in a museum but the floor-to-ceiling windows won't make you feel like you're living in a fishbowl from 36 stories up. With concrete pillars to match the sky-high ceilings, white oak floorboards and an in-house laundry room, this 210 Lavaca Street dwelling will make you feel like royalty.

The Loren, listed for $4,005,000

If you're looking to get out of the city but not too far away, The Loren's condominiums will offer extensive views of Zilker Park and East Austin all in one. A short trek to Downtown, these condos aren't scheduled to be completed until spring of 2022, so they will be brand new and ready to be broken in.

This 3,511 square-foot modern mansion on 1211 W. Riverside Drive will be softly lit with plenty of natural light, the four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms provide ample room to spread out and the high floor placement is breathtaking.

This rare 3,684 square foot penthouse spans three floors with a private balcony on each dreamy level. If that wasn't enough, the private rooftop terrace overlooks scenic East Austin views.

With three bedrooms, three bathrooms, two half bathrooms and a sprawling floor plan, the penthouse condo is perfect for remote work and quarantine living. This condo is characterized by its clean lines, industrial-yet-modern touches. Best of all, this space will put you right in the heart of Rainey Street, so you'll never be too far away from the party.

Saint Cecilia Residences, listed for $3,300,000

Shrouded in greenery, this is the place to go if you're looking for a unique dwelling. With only seven other homes in the development, this condo offers both privacy and proximity to vibrant South Congress. In collaboration with Bunkhouse Group, the property management group founded by Austin's Liz Lambert, this home is packed full of quirky and colorful accents, finishes, hardware and adds an element of interest before you even walk in. Featuring three bedrooms, three bathrooms and coming in at 2,440 square feet, this condo is one of the smaller locations on the list, but the amenities and treetop views are unparalleled. You'll be just walking distance from the Saint Cecilia Hotel, the new Music Lane development and just minutes from Downtown at this brick veneer palace.

44 East Avenue, listed for $2,800,000

Another brand new property, estimated to be completed in 2022, is conveniently located on both the shore of Lady Bird Lake, for those who love to get out and enjoy Austin's exquisite flora, and on Rainey Street, so you're in the heart of Downtown living and you'll get the best of both worlds. With four bedrooms and four full baths, this condo spreads 2,858 vast square feet. With retro architecture, wood flooring and high ceilings, this home is airy and waiting to be enjoyed. If you have the cash to make $17,000 per month payments, this home could be calling your name.
