Homes for sale near the Houston Heights

July 31st, 2014

Before there was Midtown, EADO, or Uptown, before it all there was The Heights. One of the first planned neighborhoods in Houston’s history, and recently named No. 4 Best Big City Neighborhood 2013, by CNN Money Magazine, The Heights, only four miles from downtown, is far enough from the speed of the city to unwind but close enough to save your nerves in traffic.

Originally, The Heights was developed as a retreat for those wishing to escape the newly dense population of 1900’s Houston. A long time favorite of the young upwardly mobile type, the community still serves those busy professionals, desiring a more comfortable living experience. The Heights is a successful representation of a well-planned revitalization, began by the city decades ago. The neighborhood, at the height of its hipness, is truly flowering.

The Heights boasts wide tree lined esplanades, perfect for walking the dog, or for those wanting to sit and read. While the Heights does provide for moments of piece and tranquility, do not doubt its ability to entertain. Houston Press journalist John Nova Lomax has stated, The Heights is "Houston's own mini-Austin," and had many "low-key" restaurants and beer gardens”. Additionally, this neighborhood with a “small town” feel boasts it own perpetual live music venue, Fitzgerald’s.

Now, imagine yourself nestled somewhere between I-10 to your north, 610 to the south and Shepherd and Studemont, respectively to the west and east. Step out your front door and stroll the charming esplanades while viewing the uniquely eclectic blend of remodeled and renovated homes dating from the early 1900s and “you may think you've landed in a small town," according to a National geographic article.

So, while Houston is ripe with newly blossoming neighborhoods, never neglect The Heights. The neighborhood remains a great place to live and enjoy life. There are many homes for sale in the Heights, come and enjoy life near enough to the city to enjoy a beer on your patio viewing the beautiful Houston skyline.
