French Place, Austin Texas

Shaded streets can be found all over French Place. The real estate market consists of single family homes, bungalows, and small multi-family, though there are also apartments located along the Manor Road area.

French Place (sometimes called Cherrywood) is a neighborhood in Austin, Texas. It is located east of IH-35 on the north side of town.


The French Place neighborhood is a conglomeration of small businesses, students, and single professionals. French Place is considered one of Austin's older communities having been originally owned by the Giles family in the 1940s. Residents benefit from nearby amenities, proximity to the University of Texas and to downtown.

French Place is bordered by Wilshire Boulevard to the north, Manor Road to the south, Airport Boulevard to the east and Interstate 35 to the west.

Students attend Maplewood Elementary, Kealing Junior High School and McCallum High School. Neighborhood children can head to Alamo Parkland Recreation Center and Patterson Park for athletic activities. In 2013, AT&T announced that French Place would become one of four Austin neighborhoods to get their new GigaPower high speed internet service.[1]
