An area roughly bounded by Westpark Drive to the north, Weslayan Street to the west, Bissonnet to the south, and Edloe Street to the east, Houston's Sunset Terrace is known by its residents as one of 'Houston's best kept secrets.'
Indeed, Sunset Terrace is a compact area, and that makes for a tight-knit community -- something which is evident from Sunset Terrace's active community efforts.
Much like neighboring West University Place, the tree-canopied streets of Sunset Terrace are named with a collegiate theme (Purdue, Drake, Auden), which is no surprise considering its proximity to Rice University. It is also situated just minutes from the Rice Village and Highland Village shopping areas, and not much further than that from the world-renowned Galleria.
Developed in the 1940s, many of the homes in Sunset Terrace reflect the architecture of that era, but there have also been many new construction homes in recent years. Because of that, one can find a vast range of home prices in Houston's Sunset Terrace -- from under $100,000 to nearly $2 million.
As of 2007, Sunset Terrace is zoned to West University Elementary School, Pershing Middle School (with Pin Oak Middle School as an option) and Lamar High School.
