Charming and Leafy, Hyde Park is Not Far from Trendy Downtown Austin and Boasts Cute Bungalows and Elegant Victorians
Hyde Park is a charming, tree-lined neighborhood north of downtown Austin and about a mile from the University of Texas. It dates from 1891 and was Austin's first official suburb.
The neighborhood was originally marketed to Austin's wealthiest residents. In addition to its elegant Queen Anne and Tudor Revival homes, its new electric streetcar was a major calling card.
Over the years, though, the neighborhood changed and became a "working man's" suburb with smaller but architecurally interesting frame houses and bungalows. In keeping with Austin's motto of "Keep Austin Weird," many properties are brightly colored. Today, some sections of Hyde Park are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and strict building codes are in place to ensure that upgrades and remodeling projects maintain the neighborhood's charming character.
Home prices start in the mid-$100,000s and top out in the millions.
Hyde Park is populated with graduate students, professors, professionals, empty nesters, retirees and families. In short, it appeals to a wide range of buyers who appreciate its sense of community, quiet, safe streets and proximity to downtown. Neighborhood politics lean to the left.
Shipe Park is a local park with basketball courts, two picnic tables, a swimming pool and lighted tennis courts. Shops, coffee houses, restaurants and other amenities are a short walk away. Christmas on (nearby) 37th Street draws people from all over the city for its unmatched, electic lighting displays every December.
Summer temperatures are in the 80s and 90s, and winter temperatures are in the 40s and 50s. On average, the area receives 40 inches of rain per year.
