“Violet with the Houston Properties Team is a remarkable and exceptional realtor. I was highly impressed with her hard work and dedication to help me find a home that is perfect for me. She is very knowledgeable about the Houston real estate market, and was very transparent about the things that I need to consider during my search that I wouldn’t have thought of alone. I felt supported during the entire process and her honesty throughout my search made me feel confident that I made the best decision for myself. She made the process as seamless as possible and was always very prompt, responsive, and professional.” - Sahir Burkie (Google Review)

Cottage Grove Single-Family Home Sale Trends

Cottage Grove Single Family Home

Not much different from Camp Logan, a trend in multi-level living has swept Cottage Grove.

New construction custom-built Cottage Grove homes tend to feature two- or three-stories of living space. These homes are usually built over small lots ranging from 2,500 to 5,000 square feet.

Amenities can vary, though most feature 2-car garages and second-floor living. Some new single-family homes are located in gated communities. 24/7 security and other luxury amenities are some features of these communities.

Some older Cottage Grove homes for sale are vintage cottages that date back to the 1920s. Other older homes are traditional-style patio homes. Lot areas are typically more generous, ranging from 2,500 to about 5,000 square feet.

Architectural styles vary, though traditional is more popular than other aesthetic designs.

Cottage Grove Townhome Sale Trends

Cottage Grove Townhome

Like neighboring Camp Logan and Rice Military, there are plenty of townhomes in Cottage Grove.

Increased demand for Cottage Grove homes drove new development in the neighborhood. Some of these newer construction townhomes are located in gated communities. These include Larkin at Cottage Grove, Patterson Heights, Reserve on Kansas, and Reserve at Washington. Some of these luxury developments feature secure access and great amenities. Other units are also available in varying designs and floor plans.

Townhomes are a relatively new addition to Cottage Grove’s housing options. Between the 1990s and the 2000s, developers started building townhomes in the area. Two or more units are squeezed within one parcel of land. As a result, some Cottage Grove townhomes for sale tend to sit on smaller lot areas around 1,500 square feet.

Cottage Grove Condo Sale Trends

There are no mid- or high-rise Cottage Grove condos for sale, but plenty of units are available in surrounding areas like the Galleria. Museum District condos are also a popular option.

River Oaks (77019):

Downtown Houston (77002 / 77010):

Cottage Grove TX History

Cottage Grove started as an independent city. It was once a rail stop for the Eureka Junction of the Houston and Texas Central Railway.

The stop served the then-bustling Eureka Oil Field. This brought thousands of jobs into Timbergrove, Lazybrook, and Cottage Grove during the 1920s and 1930s. The area grew as a result of the wave of workers. Hundreds of cottages were built during the period – hence the name, Cottage Grove.

Another surge of development occurred during the 1990s and 2000s. Demand for housing increased near Downtown, Memorial, and Rice Military. Young professionals were moving into Cottage Grove. Developers answered the demand with new construction townhomes.

Several old cottages were torn down to give way to new single-family homes or multi-family dwellings.

Today, development continues in Cottage Grove. Gated communities, custom-built homes, and chic townhomes change the neighborhood’s character slowly. The area’s rustic cottages, yet, still define much of Cottage Grove’s flavor.

Fun Things To Do Around Cottage Grove

Cottage Grove is located near shopping, entertainment, and dining hotspots.

Outdoor recreation areas aren’t in short supply either. Memorial Park is right across the freeway from the neighborhood. It is one of the largest urban parks in the country. It features nature trails, picnic areas, indoor and outdoor sports facilities, and playgrounds. It also has the Memorial Park Golf Course, the Seymour Lieberman Exercise Trail, and the Houston Arboretum and Nature Park.

The neighborhood also features green spaces of its own, Cottage Grove Park. The park has a covered basketball court, a baseball field, and a playground. There are plans for future improvements to the park and the addition of more hiking and bike trails around the neighborhood.

Greater Heights
