About the Cherrywood neighborhood

Cherrywood is a desirable area in East Austin comprised of several micro neighborhoods such as French Place, Delwood, and University Park.  This mature neighborhood has beautiful trees lining the streets, and there is an abundance of coffee shops and eateries on the main thoroughfares skirting the neighborhood.  It is ideally located near I-35 and Airport Boulevard, making it relatively simple to access other parts of Austin.  Just minutes from the University of Texas, Cherrywood is especially attractive to professors and students.  In 2016, Austin Monthly rated this the ninth hottest zip code in Austin.

History of the neighborhood

Cherrywood itself was once cotton fields, pastures, and woods.  Post-war development in the 1940s and 1950s saw the construction of houses and businesses on former ranch and agricultural land.   It is named for the major north-south artery, Cherrywood Road, that runs through the middle of the neighborhood.  This photo shows the Mobilgas at the intersection of Cherrywood Road and Manor Road when it opened in 1955.
