Guide To All Cottage Grove Homes For Sale

Cottage Grove Houston map

Located a few miles west of Downtown Houston, Cottage Grove is a quiet Inner Loop neighborhood with a samll-town vibe.

New development is a common sight, but the old cottages that define the neighborhood still dot its narrow, tree-lined streets. Cottage Grove homes are quite popular for their high accessibility, afforable homes, and central location.

The neighborhood is located along the Katy Freeway (I-10) and is minutes away from Loop 610. Main Houston thoroughfares Washington Avenue, Westcott Street, and TC Jester Boulevard are also easily accessible from Cottage Grove homes.

With major job, cultural, and entertainment options readily accessible, Cottage Grove is quite popular with professionals and families. Downtown, Medical Center, Montrose, and the Galleria, along with other key Houston neighborhoods are just a short drive or commute away.

Another major draw is the neighborhood’s location near schools, shopping centers, parks, restarants, cafes, and outdoor recreation. Residents can also take advantage of the green spaces in and around the neighborhood, like Memorial Park and the Cottage Grove Park.

High demand has driven prices up, but Cottage Grove homes for sale are still among the most affordable in the Inner Loop.

Cottage Grove Houston Neighborhood Guide

Cottage Grove, named for its collection of vintage cottages, was originally an independent city. Now a growing Houston neighborhood, Cottage Grove straddles the I-10 and is a stone’s throw away from Loop 610.

Easily one of Houston’s most accessible neighborhoods, Cottage Grove has Timbergrove and Lazybrook to the west and Houston Heights to the north and east. Memorial Park, Camp Logan, and Rice Military are to the south of the neighborhood, just beyond the Katy Freeway. The neighborhood is under the 77007 Harris County zip code.

Centrally located within the Inner Loop, Cottage Grove homes for sale have schools, job centers, malls, restaurants, parks, and entertainment hubs nearby. Residents can easily walk or bike to one of the country’s largest urban parks, Memorial Park.

During the 20s and 30s, Cottage Grove was a stop for the Houston and Texas Central Railway, serving the Eureka Oil Field. Hundreds of cottages were built during this period to house the thousands of workers who moved into the area.

Nowadays, some of those early cottages still stand. Others have been replaced by recently constructed townhomes as well as single-family patio homes.

The humble community is now home to gated communities and multi-family dwellings.
