Timbergrove Houston Real Estate, Neighborhood Guide

Timbergrove Houston Real Estate Guide

Located 5 miles Northwest of Downtown Houston, Timbergrove is one of the fastest growing real estate markets in the Inner Loop.

Nestled near Loop 610’s Northwest corner, Timbergrove is a deed-restricted residential neighborhood. Homes in the area have strong demand thanks to:

  • EXCELLENT REAL ESTATE MARKET GROWTH: Based on Land Value Appreciation and Real Estate Value Appreciation, Timbergrove has been one of the best investments over the past decade.
  • LARGE LOTS: Timbergrove homes typically feature mid- to large-sized lots (by Houston standards). Sizes range from 7,000 to more than 20,000 square feet.
  • SUBURBAN VIBE, CITY COMFORTS: One of the Inner Loop’s residential enclaves, Lazybrook/Timbergrove offers a quiet, family-friendly vibe. Older homes, large trees, and central location give a unique charm, balancing old world atmosphere with the convenience of Inner Loop living.
  • ACTIVE CIVIC ASSOCIATIONS: Timbergrove is made up of two subdivisions, both of which have an active HOA. The Timbergrove Manor Civic Club and the Timbergrove Manor Neighborhood Association enforce deed restrictions, maintain common areas, and oversee security (Citizens on Patrol).
  • NEAR BUSINESS AND EMPLOYMENT DISTRICTS: Timbergrove is minutes away from key job centers. Downtown Houston has more than 150,000 workers employed by 3,500+ businesses. Texas Medical Center is the largest medical center in the world with over 8 million patients and 100,000+ employees.

Timbergrove real estate can be challenging to navigate due to several factors, including the fact that a percentage of the neighborhood lies within the flood plain (this affects insurance costs, resale value, and a chance you may flood). In addition, certain streets have resale issues due to proximity to main roads and freeways, and train tracks (you don’t want to live too close to one). Also, some of the new construction builders in the area have been sued due to quality issues.

Timbergrove Real Estate Trends

Like adjoining neighborhood Lazybrook, Timbergrove real estate have posted strong appreciation rates over the last 10 years. The neighborhood is among the best places to invest in Houston, based on both Land Value Appreciation and Real Estate Appreciation.

Timbergrove’s growth can be greatly attributed to increased demand – leading to several new developments in the area. Townhomes and two-story single family homes have replaced some of the neighborhood’s older ranch-style and traditional homes.

Another key thing to look at is the number of Timbergrove homes for sale (or sold). This number has decreased by 10% from 2013 to 2014, indicating a decrease in inventory. The increasing popularity and low supply of Timbergrove homes have also contributed to the rise of property values in the neighborhood.

Despite Timbergrove Manor’s impressive growth, it remains one of the Inner Loop’s most affordable neighborhoods.

Timbergrove TX History

Timbergrove Manor, so named for the area’s abundance of pine trees, was mainly settled by German farmers during the 1800s. St. John’s German Lutheran Church, one of Houston’s first churches, was built during this period.

In the 1930s, the discovery of oil (the Eureka Oil Field) led to droves of workers moving in. However, the Lazybrook/Timbergrove area was still largely wooded and undeveloped in the 40s and 50s.

Compared to The Heights, Timbergrove is a fairly “young” neighborhood. Houston’s suburban boom in the 50s and 60s and the development of freeways helped hurry things along in the area.

Like most Inner Loop suburban neighborhoods, Timbergrove Manor featured mostly single-family ranch-style homes. Years later, young professionals moved into the area, with some converting older homes into more modern two-story homes. Others updated and renovated, keeping to the homes’ rustic vibe.

Today, Timbergrove Manor is one of the Inner Loop’s hottest neighborhoods. Increased demand has driven new developments in the area and housing options in Lazybrook/Timbergrove now include townhomes.

Fun Things To Do Near Timbergrove Houston

Timbergrove Manor, though mainly residential, does have a few retail, dining, and entertainment options available within its borders. There are, however, more than enough sights and eats (along with nightlife, retail, and entertainment) so conveniently located in surrounding neighborhoods.

With the Galleria, the Heights, Memorial Park, and Rice Military are all within driving distance of the neighborhood, Timbergrove residents have plenty of options from which to choose.

Timbergrove also offers a number of green spaces including the Jaycee Park, West 11th Street Park, and Timbergrove Manor Park.

Jaycee Park, located at 1300 Seamist, underwent fairly recent renovation through the efforts of the Friends of Jaycee Park and the surrounding communities. The park now features a basketball court, a number of tennis courts, a playground, a 1/3 mile walking trail, a water playground, and picnic tables.

West 11th Street Park, on the other hand, is a 20.2-acre nature park and is home to several species of birds, butterflies, and a wide variety of other flora and fauna. It is largely wooded, with trails and spots for birdwatchers. Residents also enjoy the White Oak Bayou’s 7.4-mile hike and bike trail, which is connected to several parks including Timbergrove Manor Park.

With the Memorial Park a short drive away, Timbergrove Manor homes also have easy access to its many amenities, including a top-rated municipal golf course, nature center, and miles of trails.
