Briargrove is a deed-restricted residential enclave located about 12 miles west of Downtown Houston.

Known for its peaceful and neighborly atmosphere, Briargrove is a very popular neighborhood for a number of reasons including:

  • CENTRAL LOCATION: Located just west of the Galleria/Uptown area, Briargrove homes have plenty of retailers, boutiques, shopping malls, schools, job centers, and entertainment options nearby.
  • EASY ACCESSIBILITY: With convenient access to main Houston roads like Westheimer Road and Woodway Drive, Briargrove homes for sale are highly accessible to and from Inner Loop neighborhoods.
  • PEACEFUL AND FRIENDLY ATMOSPHERE: A relatively small neighborhood of about 900 homes, Briargrove is a tight-knit community, welcoming of both new residents and new generations of its old families moving into the area.
  • STRONG SENSE OF COMMUNITY: Briargrove’s HOA, together with its architectural committee, work very hard to keep the neighborhood’s look and overall ambiance. Residents can enjoy access to a community center and recreation facility as well.
  • AWARD-WINNING SCHOOLS: Briargrove homes for sale are zoned to some of the Houston ISD’s finest IB schools. Award-winning school, Briargrove Elementary, is located at the heart of the neighborhood.
  • BEAUTIFUL HOMES: Briargrove’s quiet streets are adorned with beautifully restored traditional ranch-style homes, and newer construction custom-built homes.

One of Houston’s most desirable neighborhoods, Briargrove has very little inventory of available homes for sale. To navigate this challenging market, home buyers will greatly benefit from the help of the best Houston Realtor for advice and updated information.

Briargrove Houston History

Like most neighborhoods in west Houston, Briargrove can trace its roots back to the suburban housing boom in the 50s and 60s.

In 1948, Walter and Mary Jo Peckham moved to the property now known as Briargrove, located a few miles west of what was then Houston’s city limits. They stayed there up until the property was sold to developers.

Much like the upscale subdivisions developed at the time, Briargrove was built out with ranch-style homes, some of which still stand today. Briargrove Elementary, the neighborhood’s award-winning school, was built in 1958.

Briargrove Real Estate Trends

The Briargrove real estate market has grown over the past 10 years. From $440,875 in 2005, the median sales price of Briargrove homes has increased to $771,700 in 2014 – an impressive 75% positive change.

This growth is also apparent in the subdivision’s average price per square foot, which has more than doubled over the same period.

Interestingly, these two trends coincide with the decreasing number of Briargrove homes for sale. With the neighborhood’s continued popularity came increased demand, which in turn has driven prices up at a steady pace.

Other factors may have contributed in keeping the area’s real estate market strong: Briargrove’s active homeowners association, its deed restrictions, and its architectural committee.

Briargrove homes include old ranch-style homes, updated/remodeled homes, and recently constructed custom-built homes. Prices can range from $500,000 to upwards of $1M.

Briargrove Single-Family Home Sale Trends

Compared to those in the Memorial Village, Briargrove single-family homes tend to range from older ranch-style and traditional homes to remodeled or updated dwellings. New construction custom-built homes are also becoming more common within the area.

Briargrove homes for sale typically sit on large lots by Houston Inner Loop standards, ranging from 8,000 to 10,000 square feet. Sprawling, manicured lawns and treed front and/or backyards are common features found in homes within the neighborhood.

Though traditional and ranch-style homes are more prevalent in Briargrove, other architectural styles are represented well in its newer homes, including French, contemporary, and modern.


Briargrove Townhomes Sale Trends

Briargrove Houston has deed restrictions and architectural guidelines discourage the construction of townhomes. There are, however, plenty of townhomes available in areas just outside the subdivision, most notably near Briargrove Drive and Westheimer Road.


Briargrove Condo Sale Trends

Due to the neighborhood’s deed restrictions, there are no Briargrove condos for sale in mid-rise or highrise buildings, but plenty of units are available in surrounding areas like the Galleria and River Oaks. Museum District condos are also a popular option.

River Oaks (77019):

Galleria (77056):
