THE HEIGHTS

 

WELCOME TO THE HEIGHTS

When Houston Heights was founded in the late 1800s, it was a streetcar suburb of Houston, attracting people who did not wish to live in the dense city. Today, the neighborhood has maintained its historical charm while becoming a hub for independent local shops and restaurants. Residents enjoy a small town feel in the middle of our bustling city with easy access to several major highways.

AROUND THE BLOCK

THE HEIGHTS:

A charming sense of community in the heart of a big city.

The Heights is situated inside the northwest corner of the inner loop of Houston. Since it’s bordered by 610 to the north, the Gulf Freeway to the east and the Katy Freeway to the south, residents don’t have to choose between the area’s charming sense of community and small town feel or a manageable commute into the city’s heart. Here they enjoy both.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Small town feel with historic charm and an eclectic vibe.

Take a stroll down the tree-canopied esplanades and side streets dotted with homes dating from the early 1900s and you may think you've landed in a small town. Don't be fooled, many of these historic homes have been updated to feature all of the modern luxuries one could desire. 

THE LIFESTYLE:

Patio home living with parks, restaurants, and shops in walking distance.

Front porch sitting is iconic to Heights living and the perfect venue to watch neighbors come and go. Residents of The Heights enjoy the walkability of the community, with restaurants, shops, bars, parks, and hike and bike trails within only a few blocks of home in most cases. 

UNEXPECTED APPEAL:

Quirkiness of independent local businesses.

You will fall in love with the feel of community built largely from the concentration of independent, local business owners that bring their own flair to the culinary, art, and recreation scene in Houston. In The Heights, you will find one-of-a-kind establishments that continue to surprise and delight their customers by bringing unique experiences geared towards locals.

THE MARKET:

Efficient lots with homes dating back to the early 1900s.

While you might find larger lot sizes further out from the center of Houston, you will save a lot of time and headache maintaining oversized yards. The housing market in The Heights is more varied than ever while still maintaining its historic charm. You will find iconic bungalow style homes, patio homes, and New Orleans style homes throughout the majority of the neighborhood, but there are plenty of townhome and condo options available these days as well. 

YOU'LL FALL IN LOVE WITH:

The small town atmosphere and steadily rising property values.

The Heights has done an amazing job maintaining its sense of community while undergoing massive growth. And with plenty of opportunities for continued development, we don't see this area slowing down anytime soon.
