Briargrove Park Houston Real Estate & Neighborhood Guide

Briargrove Park Houston Real Estate Guide

One of West Houston’s top neighborhoods, Briargrove Park is located directly north of Westchase District.

Established in 1963, Briargrove Park is made up of around 1,480 single-family homes. Its charm lies in its gaslit street lights, mature trees, and active community, as well as its central location and great home options.

Residents enjoy:

  • TOP WESTERN HOUSTON NEIGHBORHOOD: One of Western Houston’s top neighborhoods, Briargrove Park is on par with the top subdivisions in the Memorial area, including Bunker Hill, Briargrove, Westchase, and Rivercrest.
  • PROXIMITY TO EMPLOYMENT DISTRICTS: Nestled north of the Westchase Business District, Briargrove Park residents are minutes away from business and employment centers. The Energy Corridor and the Galleria, two major employment hubs are both around 5 miles away from the neighborhood.
  • STRONG CIVIC INVOLVEMENT: The Briargrove Park Property Owners, Inc. handle the neighborhood’s deed restrictions, review new construction and additions, organize events, and maintain common areas (including the gaslights). The community also employs a 24-hour constable service. Other community organizations include the Briargrove Park Women’s Club.
  • EASY ACCESS: The neighborhood sits east of Beltway 8 and north of Westheimer Road. Briar Forest Drive cuts through the neighborhood, while Gessner Road, Memorial Drive, and Richmond Avenue are all within minutes away. Key Houston areas are a short drive away from the neighborhood.
  • NEAR RETAIL AND ENTERTAINMENT: Residents are a short drive away from west Houston’s best retail centers, including Memorial City Mall, the CityCentre, Town and Country Village, Westchase Shopping Center, and Woodlake Square. There are also plenty of restaurants, bars, lounges, and cafes along Westheimer Road.
  • LARGE WOODED LOTS: Like nearby Memorial area neighborhoods, Briargrove Park offers generous lots, typically between 8,000 to upwards of 12,000 square feet. Mature trees and landscaping are common in Briargrove Park homes.

Briargrove Park real estate can be tricky to navigate due to its proximity to Beltway 8 (as this may hurt resale values) and main streets (where noise may become an issue especially along Westheimer). Older homes may need renovation, while new construction can pose quality issues.

Briargrove Park TX History

Briargrove Park, much like its Memorial area neighbors, used to be a rural area. It was a dairy farm, while nearby Westchase was a cattle ranch owned by an oilman.

Development started in 1963, spearheaded by J.L. Phillips. The developer even used the existing two-story farmhouse as an office. He later built his own home within the subdivision.

Early homes featured three pine trees (as seen on the neighborhood’s logo) – some of which still stand today.

Most of the surrounding areas have grown with mixed use developments like the Westchase district. Restaurants, bars, and retail areas have also flourished along Westheimer Road. Despite these, Briargrove Park remains a quiet residential subdivision with winding streets, distinct gas lamps, and mature pines.
