Guide To ALL Bunker Hill Homes For Sale
Bunker Hill Village is one of the six affluent independent cities collectively known as the Memorial Villages.
Located a few miles west of Downtown Houston, Bunker Hill offers a mix of older ranch-style homes and elegant manors, against a backdrop of a serene, country-living vibe. Bunker Hill homes for sale are always in great demand due to its:
- Central location: Bunker Hill Village is located in the westernmost portion of the Memorial Villages and has convenient access to both Katy Freeway and Sam Houston Parkway.
- Shopping and dining options: The Memorial City Mall and the CityCentre, along with several shopping and dining hubs, are located a few minutes from Bunker Hill Village.

- Elegant homes on large lots: As is typical for the Villages, Bunker Hill homes sit on sprawling lots ranging from half-acre to more than 80,000 square feet. Architectural styles vary, but most of Bunker Hill’s housing options do have something in common: elegance and luxury.
With Bunker Hill Village’s great accessibility, plenty of retail and entertainment options, and excellent schools, it’s no surprise that it was included in Forbes’ list of Top Places to Live Well.

Neighborhood Guide: Bunker Hill Village TX
Among the four villages located south of the Katy Freeway, Bunker Hill Village has Hedwig Village to the north and Piney Point Village to the east. Hunters Creek sits farther to the east, while Hilshire and Spring Valley are located north of the I-10.
Some of Bunker Hill Village’s old ranch-style homes can be traced back to the area’s early history. During the 19th century, the area in which the Memorial Villages now sits was populated with farms, sawmills, and a few homes.
In the 1950s and 60s, the Houston housing boom and the development of the Katy Freeway sparked interest in Bunker Hill and the rest of the Memorial Villages. In order to keep the area’s residential zoning and preserve the neighborhood’s tranquil atmosphere, Bunker Hill filed a petition and was incorporated in 1954 with a mayor-city council form of government.
Today, Bunker Hill is an independent city that jointly operates the Memorial Villages Police Department with Hunters Creek and Piney Point. The Village Fire Department and the Memorial Villages Water Authority both serve the city.
Despite being mainly residential, the city’s central location gives its residents excellent access to the area’s entertainment, shopping and dining options, as well as key Houston hubs like Downtown, the Energy Corridor, and The Galleria.
Bunker Hill Village is under the 77024 Harris County zip code. Zip codes near Bunker Hill include: 77007, 77008, 77019, 77027, 77042, 77043, 77055, 77056, 77057, 77063, and 77079.
Bunker Hill Real Estate Trends
With a total area of 1.5 square miles and no chance of expanding, real estate trends in Bunker Hill has taken a turn toward updating and tearing down old homes to build new ones. Like its fellow villages, this trend has caused Bunker Hill real estate to appreciate.
Compared to Hedwig, Piney Point, and Hunters Creek though, Bunker Hill has marked conservative price increases. It is, however, still quite impressive when put side-by-side with comparable Houston properties.
In the past decade, Bunker Hill homes for sale have steadily appreciated. The median sales price has increased from $1,175,000 in 2005 to $1,815,000 in 2014. This 54% change is similar to positive changes in average sales price per square foot and lot price per square foot, both posting 50% and 54% changes, respectively.
Deed restrictions and zoning ordinances have helped maintain Bunker Hill’s look and luxurious atmosphere. Like most of the Memorial Villages, elegant single-family homes on large wooded lots are common. Ranch-style homes used to populate Bunker Hill, but most of them are being replaced with new construction custom-built manors with all the modern conveniences.
