Hancock

Highly Desirable
North of the University of Texas and close to downtown is surprisingly quaint and quiet Hancock, a neighborhood highly desired by professionals, families, university students and faculty. Many homes adorning the neighborhood were built in the early 1900s, and are charming modestly-sized bungalows. There are also apartment complexes and larger homes. Hancock’s suburban lifestyle and convenient location to many Austin attractions makes it a perfect place to live for residents.

Hancock has plenty of restaurants, shopping, and places to socialize with friends. In the heart of the neighborhood is Hancock Golf Course and Recreation Center, a great place to enjoy the outdoors and warm sunny days. Restaurants and cafes in town include the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Pei Wei, Taco Joint, and Cherrywood Coffeehouse. There are also two convenient grocery stores for residents - H-E-B and Fiesta Market. Hancock is perfect for you if you are looking for a neighborly experience while still being close enough to city life.

Hancock — 8.8/10 Rating (based on 4 neighborhood reviews)
Hancock is such a cute, friendly neighborhood. Most of the occupants are young families and students. The housing is pretty mixed, from extremely nice to a little more run-down. I have never had an issue with safety in the neighborhood. The Metro 7 line runs right through Hancock and Hyde Park, making public transit an easy option for getting to school. There is also an HEB grocery store, a running trail/public golf course, and a shopping center right in the neighborhood.

I really enjoy this neighborhood, but I wish I had better access to restaurants and bars like you find in Cherrywood.
