Avalon Place Houston Neighborhood Guide
Avalon Place was developed as a result of William Thomas Dickey’s dreams to turn his farmlands to a subdivision to be called “College Heights”. He did not live long enough to see this happen, but through the efforts of his son, Avalon Place was completed in the 1940’s.
The neighborhood is located in one of the most expensive Houston zip codes, 77019. It covers 70 acres between Westheimer Road, San Felipe Street, Dickey Place, and Bellmeade St.
It is composed of 7 sections which initially followed its own deed restriction. However, in 2001, the Avalon Property Owners Association incorporated the deed restrictions into a single master document, which is still presently followed.
These deed restrictions include having provisions for signages, architecture, setback lines, and dwelling orientation.
Avalon Place is a strictly single-family residential subdivision. The neighborhood goes against the Houston trend of tearing down older homes. It instead mirrors Montrose’s culture of updating older homes.
There are still a few new constructions in the neighborhood, rivaling the grandeur and scale of the recently renovated homes. These renovated homes come with substantial updating and modern amenities to meet the luxurious lifestyle of Avalon Place residents.
Regardless of age or size, the 251 single-family homes within Avalon Place Houston are all elegant and expensive. Avalon Place homes for sale are priced between $740,000 to over $3 million despite having older homes with a median year built of 1940.
Nearby zip codes include: 77098, 77002, 77007, 77046, 77027, and 77006. (View Houston zip code map)
