In a city that's plowing ahead in the name of progress, one southwest Austin community retains much of the colorful character and laid-back lifestyle that shapes the South Austin mystique.
Cherry Creek features an expansive collection of well-kept one- and two-story homes, peaceful winding roads and a wealth of beautiful oak trees. Like a quiet contradiction, Cherry Creek sounds and feels removed from the busy and vibrant city, but is actually within close proximity of shopping, employment, entertainment and highway access.
An expansive community with numerous subdivisions, Cherry Creek is accessed by such major roadways as William Cannon, Manchaca, Stassney, and Brodie Lane, West Gate, MoPac and Interstate 35. The community also features several bus routes.
Cherry Creek homes range from approximately 1,300 to more than 2,500 square feet. Many were built in the 1970s while others are less than 3-years-old.
Prices range from about $130,000 to more than $200,000. That pricing coupled with location, character and nearby schools have made Cherry Creek a desirable community for more than 30 years.
Nearby Garrison Park offers a peaceful family retreat and features picnic tables, barbecue grills, basketball court and children's playscape set among shade trees
