About Hemphill Park
Homes in Hemphill Park are all unique with many reminiscent of bungalows found in the Midwest. Many were built for professors at the University of Texas in the early half of the 1900s. Brick, stucco, and frame homes and cottages will all be found here. Many have been restored, while some have been divided up into apartments because of the demand for student housing. These homes now fetch very high prices because of their close-in location, trees, and their unique architectural styles. (Scroll down to read more.)

Hemphill Park area Amenities
Hemphill Park homes are near “The Drag” with all of its cafes, coffee houses, and restaurants. Breed Hardware, Texas French Bread, Four Sons Cleaners, and Wheatsville CoOp are within walking distance as well as other unique Austin establishments. This is the place to live if you want to get away from corporate shopping and dining. One of my favorite things to do is to walk in this neighborhood because you can vary your route each time and see different things. It’s never boring here.
