  • This is a deed restricted community, that restricts homes over two stories.
  • The typical Maplewood home was built in the 1950’s and offers much more affordability than nearby Museum District, West University or Southside Place homes for sale.

Maplewood is also zoned to some of the top-ranked public schools in Houston, including Bellaire High School, Fondren Middle School, and Lovett Elementary School.

With the continued demand for Maplewood homes for sale, finding the right home may be challenging. Homebuyers will benefit from the guidance of an experienced Maplewood realtor who knows the neighborhood, deed restrictions, and non-MLS inventory.
