Several of these venues offer live music, and you can also find a hoola hooping happy hour and impromptu art exhibits. The new package-free grocery store in.gredients is a few blocks away, and the larger HEB is just across IH-35.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Having grown up in this community it's been amazing to see Austin mature into a more urban, more cosmopolitan city. The biggest perks are the increased diversity in music and the arts and the casual and fun bars and restaurants. That said, what's kept me in French Place all these years is it's old Austin feel, warm and friendly neighbors, and eclectic style. .

Why the Owner Chose Cherrywood:
Old Austin neighborhood feel, with an incredibly convenient location. There are numerous bars, cafes, taquerias, restaurants,and theatres within easy walking distance, and all the best of East Austin and downtown is within a few minutes' drive.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
This beautiful, sun filled apartment features original 1950s wood sash windows, but is otherwise completely updated. It is located on a quiet, residential street and is a perfect retreat while you explore all that Austin has to offer.
