Bunker Hill Luxury Real Estate, Neighborhood Guide
Among the six Memorial Villages, Bunker Hill Village sits on the westernmost area nearest where Katy Freeway (I-10) and Sam Houston Parkway (Beltway 8) meet. The independent city is adjacent to Hedwig and Piney Point to the north and east, respectively.
Bunker Hill, like nearly all of the Villages, is mostly residential, but it has easy access to retail and entertainment options located in Hedwig and Houston.
During the 1930s, Bunker Hill Village was a sleepy community populated with farms and sawmills. It shares this somehow rural history with the rest of the Memorial Villages, as well as its eventual growth and and rise to prominence.
In the 1950s, the development of the I-10, along with Houston’s housing boom, sparked an interest in the Memorial Villages. Upper-middle-class subdivisions took root along the Buffalo Bayou and the rest of the area followed in earnest.
During the same period, Houston was expanding its borders to include surrounding areas. To circumvent this and to keep their mostly residential zoning, Bunker Hill and the rest of the Memorial Villages – Hunters Creek, Hedwig, Hilshire, Spring Valley, and Piney Point – filed petitions for incorporation.
Today, Bunker Hill operates as an independent city with a mayor-city council form of government. It has managed to maintain its largely residential zoning and country-living atmosphere through deed restrictions and zoning ordinances.
Bunker Hill Village, along with Hunters Creek and Piney Point, operates the Memorial Villages Police Department. The Village Fire Department, on the other hand, serves all of the Memorial Villages.
Bunker Hill luxury real estate reflects some of its history, as well as its progress toward newer homes. Like the rest of the Villages, Bunker Hill cannot expand beyond its 1.5-square mile area and so homeowners with older ranch-style homes are tearing down and building more modern homes.
