Guide To Lindale Park Houston Real Estate, Homes

Lindale Park Houston Real Estate Guide

Based on 15 neighborhood factors, Lindale Park has the potential to offer some of the best growth over the next decade.

Lindale Park is a neighborhood of approximately 1,200 homesites located 3 miles north of Downtown Houston. I believe it could turn into the next Houston Heights, thanks to:

  • SMALL TOWN VIBE: One of Houston’s older neighborhoods, Lindale Park is a quiet community with a small town atmosphere. Its streets are lined with mature oaks, vintage cottages and traditional-style bungalows. Deed restrictions have ensured that minimum lot sizes and minimum building lines are kept uniform.
  • ACTIVE CIVIC ASSOCIATION: The Lindale Park Civic Association is instrumental in enforcing the neighborhood’s deed restrictions, maintaining common areas, and preserving the community’s look and feel.

Buying or selling a home in Lindale Park can be tricky due to several factors, including proximity to main roads and freeways (which can hurt resale values), MetroRail access (you want to be close to but not too close), deed restrictions (there are pro’s and con’s to this, depending on your goals), and home quality issues. The neighborhood is still gentrifying so certain blocks sell for a premium / discount.

Lindale Park TX History

Lindale Park was founded in 1937, under developer W. Roy Reid. The neighborhood was built beside the Lindale Place community golf course, and also boasted of a community lake/swimming pool nearby. Later, the golf course was closed in favor of more homes.

The Reids built their own house in Lindale Park.

Architectural styles in the neighborhood underwent a shift, specifically post-WWII. Before the war, the neighborhood was mostly cottages with exterior brickwork and detailed archways. Other features distinct to homes in the neighborhood include peaked roofs.

Post-WWII saw the entry of ranch-style homes in the community.

Some time in the 1970s, Lindale Park’s original deed restrictions lapsed. Some years later in the 1980s, resident-volunteers worked toward re-implementing the neighborhood’s deed restrictions. Other community improvements (water system upgrades, street resurfacing, street lighting, and overall beautification) was also made through the efforts of the Lindale Park Civic Club.

Today, most of Lindale Park’s original homes from the 1940s and 1950s still stand. Vintage bungalows, traditional style cottages, and ranch-style homes are common in the area.
