Braeswood Place Houston TX Real Estate & Neighborhood

Braeswood Place Houston Real Estate Guide

One of Inner Loop’s Best Neighborhoods in Real Estate Appreciation, Braeswood Place is an exclusive community with great schools and excellent accessibility.

Nestled north of Loop 610, Braeswood Place is made up of around 2,200 homes and 7 subdivisions. The neighborhood is about 6 miles away from downtown Houston and is a few minutes away from the Texas Medical Center.

Residents enjoy:

  • PROXIMITY TO THE MED CENTER: Braeswood is just a few minutes away from the Texas Medical Center, one of Houston’s major employment centers. The district features around 50 medical-related institutions, organizations, schools, and hospitals with more than 100,000 employees and volunteers. Other key business centers like Downtown, Greenway Plaza and the Uptown/Galleria area are also easily accessible from the community.
  • STRONG REAL ESTATE APPRECIATION: Braeswood Place features some of the most impressive real estate appreciation rates in the Inner Loop. The median sales price of homes in the area is at over $800,000.
  • EXCELLENT ACCESSIBILITY: Surrounded by Houston’s Most Accessible Neighborhoods, Braeswood Place features main streets and freeways nearby, including Loop 610, Stella Link Road, Main Street, Kirby Drive, and Buffalo Speedway. Braeswood Boulevard cuts through the neighborhood.
  • HIGHLY RATED SCHOOLS: Braeswood Place homes are zoned to some of Houston’s Best Schools. Highly regarded schools like Bellaire High School, Lamar High School, Pershing Middle, and Twain Elementary. Twain, Longfellow, and Pershing are located within the neighborhood.
  • GREAT ATMOSPHERE: The neighborhood features a quiet small-town atmosphere just a stone’s throw away from Houston’s main districts. This is thanks in part to the neighborhood’s deed restrictions and the efforts of the Braeswood Place Homeowners Association (BPHA).
  • PLENTY OF RETAIL AND ENTERTAINMENT: Braeswood Place features several parks and outdoor entertainment areas (McGovern Park, Karl Young Park, the Stella Link Park Community Service Corridor, and the Brays Bayou Hike and Bike Trail). Hermann Park, located just a short drive away, offers more options.

The neighborhood’s deed restrictions, older homes, and proximity to main roads and freeways can make Braeswood Place real estate tricky to navigate. Some of the area’s older properties may need extensive renovations, while homes near busy roads may have issues with noise (which can affect property values).

Braeswood Place Houston History

Chartered in 1951, Braeswood Place’s development started in the late 40s. Like most Houston neighborhoods during the period, the area was made up of single-family ranch-style homes.

During the 1990s, concerned residents formed the Stella Link Redevelopment Association (SLRA), a group dedicated to rehabilitating parts of the neighborhood. The efforts of the association and with help from the city and private parties led to the creation of the Stella Link Park community service corridor.

The large 4-block area is now home to two area schools (Pershing Middle School and Mark Twain Elementary School), the McGovern-Stella Link Library, the Weekley Family YMCA, and McGovern Park.

Like most areas in Houston, the early 2000s marked a trend in tearing down old Braeswood Place homes and replacing them with bigger, custom-built houses. Some of the neighborhood’s original homes from the 1950s, however, have been carefully maintained and updated.
