Avalon Place Houston is a small yet affluent community in the vicinity of River Oaks, the most expensive subdivision in Houston.

The neighborhood shares many of the luxuries that River Oaks homes for sale provide. Avalon Place is within the Inner Loop, close to Uptown, Greenway Plaza, Texas Medical Center, Rice University, and Downtown.

The neighborhood is also near The Galleria, Theatre District, Memorial Park, Highland Village, and River Oaks Shopping Center.

Avalon Place homes for sale are 26% lower than Royden Oaks homes, and 27% lower than Oak Estates homes (both in the vicinity of River Oaks).

Avalon Place homes for sale are composed of beautifully updated older homes and a few new constructions.

These renovated homes come with substantial upgrades and modern amenities to meet the luxurious lifestyle that the 7th most expensive Houston neighborhood demands..

It’s a very close-knit community and residents rarely move out. The very tight Avalon Place Houston real estate market has very few listings, with some being off-market.

This makes it even more difficult for homebuyers to find an Avalon Place home. Having the best Avalon Place realtor helps.

For questions, advice, real estate recommendations, or off-market MLS listings, contact Paige Martin, head of the Houston Properties Team and rated as the best Keller Williams Memorial realtor the last four years.

Avalon Place Houston Neighborhood Guide

Avalon Place’s history stretches back to the 1930’s when William Thomas Dickey had a dream of developing a subdivision to be called “College Heights”. Unfortunately, he did not live long enough to see its fruition.

His son continued the development of the vast farmland despite being sent off to war. After World War II, development took off and the 7 sections of Avalon Place was completed.

Nestled between River Oaks and Montrose, the neighborhood combines the grace of Montrose’s historic homes and the luxuries of River Oaks.

It is located bordered by Westheimer Road to the south, San Felipe Street to the north, Dickey Place to the west, and Bellmeade Street to the east.
