Ayrshire Houston Neighborhood Guide

Braeswood Place Houston map

Ayrshire is a quaint neighborhood popular for its cul-de-sac streets, close-knit community, and great schools. It is one of the seven communities that make up Braeswood Place, one of the hottest Inner Loop neighborhoods.

Ayrshire homes are located at the northern portion of Braeswood Place, bordered by Gramercy Street to its north, Braeswood Boulevard to its south, and Kirby Drive to its east. The community is easily accessible from key Houston areas including Texas Medical Center, West University, and Museum District.

Similar to other Braeswood Place communities, Ayrshire’s features include:

  • An active civic community under the Braeswood Place Homeowners Association, a blanket HOA covering all the communities in Braeswood Place. It handles the upkeep of neighborhood infrastructure, security, and the neighborhood’s deed restrictions.
  • Charming mix of homes, mostly 1950s ranch-styles as well as custom-built new construction. Compared to similar properties in Bellaire and West University, homes in Ayrshire have bigger yards and more affordable rates.

Thanks to its great location, residents are mere minutes away from retail and entertainment areas, as well as Houston’s main job centers. Schools are also one of Ayrshire’s main draws, as homes in the area are zoned to award-winning schools of Houston ISD.
