French Place (sometimes called Cherrywood) is a neighborhood in Austin, Texas. It is located east of IH-35 on the north side of town.
A subdivision of Cherrywood in East Austin, 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, French Place is accessible from large highways and major roads. The community remains a "walking" neighborhood. Houses are generally 900 to 1,600 sq. feet of living space and range anywhere between $200,000 and $400,000.
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.
