“We lived here throughout our college years in the home our mother grew up in! Our grandmother wanted us to have a place to call home while we studied and after she died, my husband and I were honored to start our own family here -Hancock is where I want to stay.”
North of UT, West of IH35, and South of 45th Street : Location, location, location. Central Austin homes for sale in this area become prime targets for home-buyers looking to stay close-in and near the University area without living in a sea of student housing. Hancock is home to both students (at all levels) and lifetime residents creating a feels-like-home atmosphere with plenty of recreational opportunities. Play a round of golf or host your community event at the Hancock Rec Center and Golf course. Ample grocery and retail outlets plus 24 hour fitness, automotive shops, storage, dry cleaners, and evening hang-out spots mean students and families alike won’t have to go far to take care of daily living. Direct access to UT, downtown, and a jump from IH35 make Hancock an excellent launch pad for the entire city. Die-hard UT fan? Walk to Darryl K. Royal Memorial Stadium on game day or catch an open practice on the special practice field on off days.
Enjoy an early morning classic at Red River Café or get full at the local Free-Birds. Looking for a finer dining experience? Try Asti Trattoria for culinary delights that still call for casual clothes. Cap the night off with friends and coffee at Lava Java.

“We had our home listed with another agent for several months and we received no interest at all. We were put in contact with Grant Whittenberger. He was able to sell our house close to asking price. He also kept us informed on what was happening through the entire process and answered our questions within the hour.” - Sarah & Kyle C.
