Memorial Villages Homes For Sale Under $600K
Memorial Villages is a collection of six independent villages. Each village is unique, though the tranquil, country-living character is a common trait among all of them.
Located just west of Houston, it is one of the wealthiest areas in Texas. Memorial Villages homes for sale are very desirable due to the following:
- Great accessibility: Located along Katy Freeway between Houston and the Energy Corridor, residents have a fairly easy commute to and from business, cultural, and retail hotspots. Downtown Houston is just 10 miles away. The Galleria, Museum District, and Texas Medical Center are just as easily accessible.
- Excellent schools: Memorial Villages is zoned to the Spring Branch ISD, a school district known for its award-winning and top-ranked schools. Memorial High School and Stratford High School both serve the Villages.
- Tranquil and private communities: Memorial Villages has deed restrictions that ban commercial establishments and billboards within its borders. This has resulted in a strictly residential area and has preserved its country-living charm.
- Beautiful choice of homes: The Memorial Villages boasts of luxurious estates and grand mansions. Some patio homes and bungalows left over from the original developments in the 1950s and 60s tend to be more affordable.
Memorial Villages homes are prized for having access to the best schools, great location, and a serene atmosphere.

Memorial Villages TX Neighborhood Guide
Memorial Villages consists of six independent villages. Bunker Hill, Hedwig, Hunters Creek, and Piney Point are sandwiched between the Buffalo Bayou to the south and Katy Freeway (I-10) to the north. Spring Valley and Hilshire straddle the I-10.
Located west of Houston, Memorial Villages TX has easy access to key Houston centers like Downtown Houston, the Medical Center, and the Museum District. Another important job center, the Energy Corridor is a short drive east of the Villages.
During the 1930s, the Memorial Villages was a sparsely populated area. It only had stately mansions, a few homes, and mostly empty land. The development in the area made headway alongside Houston’s suburban boom in the 1950s and 60s. During this period, the Katy Freeway was under construction, adding to interest in the area.
In the mid-1950s, Hunters Creek Village filed for a petition for incorporation. Piney Point, Bunker Hill, and Hedwig Village followed during the same year. A year later, Spring Valley and Hilshire were also incorporated.
The six villages operate independently, each with its own government. Memorial Villages also has joint police and fire departments and a water authority.
Memorial Villages thus kept its residential zoning. Commercialism and billboards are against the area’s deed restrictions. Commercial establishments are consigned to the Villages’ borders.
Homes in Memorial Villages typically sit on large lots. Older homes with smaller lots tend to be more affordable than new construction homes. Home styles also tend to vary from property to property.
Memorial Villages features some of the most expensive homes in Houston. Forbes lists the area’s 77024 as one of the wealthiest and priciest zip codes in the country.
