Garden Oaks is one of Houston’s best-kept secrets. Nestled among towering pines and grand magnolias, this quaint and architecturally unique neighborhood of approximately 1400 homes continues to attract attention and rave reviews. From the quaint cottages and charming bungalows to plantation, ranch and traditional style homes, Garden Oaks supports diverse updates while maintaining its charm and sense of history. Because of its excellent location, mass appeal, oversized lots, and booming property values, Garden Oaks is often compared to West University and Bellaire.

In 1937, Edward L. Crain established Garden Oaks on a tract of land just north of the Houston Heights. Comprised of 5 sections, Garden Oaks offers a unique blend of mid-century homes—mostly pier and beam cottages. The western edge of the neighborhood is comprised of G.I. homes built for returning veterans after World War II. All five sections have seen an abundance of renovations and newly constructed homes.

Houston’s variety of neighborhoods makes it easy for you to buy a lifestyle or a home.  In the next few weeks I will be writing about desirable areas throughout Houston. I’ll begin with living within the 610 Loop then I’ll write about popular Master Planned Communities.
