Garden Oaks Real Estate & Neighborhood Review

Search Garden Oaks Homes For Sale

The name Garden Oaks is a pretty good description for what the area can offer to its residents. Covered by large oaks, towering pines, and majestic magnolias, you get a serene country vibe from Garden Oaks. With lovely, traditional ranch-style homes and cottages, Garden Oaks is one of the best places for people looking for a nice retreat from the fast-paced city life.

Aside from the country-styled homes in the area, part of the appeal of Garden Oaks is the lack of curbs and sidewalks that further enhances the rustic ambiance of the area. If you have a penchant for the appeal of rural scenery, then Garden Oaks is a place you can call home.

The historical and traditional theme of the area has been preserved through the renovation and restoration of the old homes’ original design and appearance. This is how you can get that unmistakable feeling of being out in the country.

Another reason for its rustic charm is the lot sizes. The average lot in Garden Oaks is twice as large as those in The Houston Heights. This is the case especially for the plantation-styled homes.

While offering much in quaint rural theme and scenery, you can also find new home constructions in Garden Oaks. If you’re looking for a modern style in your home while still wanting to enjoy the country feel of the surroundings, then a Garden Oaks home for sale may be the ideal place for you and your family.

Location and history of Garden Oaks

Garden Oaks is located at the north of Houston Heights, and is just outside the Interstate 610 loop. Because of this location, you can easily go to other parts of Houston from Garden Oaks through the 610. So, even if you are cutoff from the noise from the city, you can still easily drive to downtown Houston should you want to visit any of the entertainment and leisure establishments in the nearby city.

The Garden Oaks community was founded by Edward L. Crain in 1937. Since then, the number of homes has grown to 1,400. As Garden Oaks offers a lot in scenery through its numerous trees and rural-styled homes, it has gained a lot of attention from the public, thereby increasing its real estate value. The area has been compared to West University and Bellaire because of those reasons.

So, if you prefer to reside in a tree-lined community filled with quaint and rustic-styled homes, then Garden Oaks real estate should be one of your prime choices. Not only that, you get to enjoy that piece of country life while still having the city within your reach.
