Timbergrove lies just inside the 610 loop and west of the Houston Heights, situated on the rolling banks of White Oak Bayou. Neighborhoods consist of modest ranch-style homes built during the 50s and 60s. Many Timbergrove homes have been remodeled in recent years, with buyers finding quite affordable properties (usually in need of some TLC) amid the towering pines of the neighborhood.
Timbergrove is divided into two sections, each governed by a separate homeowners association. Deed restrictions are enforced throughout, and the groups handle landscaping of esplanades and a Citizens on Patrol security plan. The older portion lies east of White Oak Bayou, where small traditional frame houses built in the 1950s often feature metal kitchen cabinets. The section west of the bayou is comprised of larger, brick ranch houses built in the late 1950s and 1960s. Some of the most desirable houses are found along Cindy Lane, Lindyann Lane and Kury Lane, which were named for the developer’s daughters.
Many of the homes in Timbergrove have been renovated with new kitchen cabinets and refinished floors. Quirky 1950s-era features — such as 4-inch bathroom tiles in vintage color pairings such as pink and burgundy — are a topic of conversation among neighbors.
Timbergrove Manor’s tidy ranch houses and tree-lined streets once posed an alternative to buyers who got priced out of the Houston Heights. Now, that is changing.
