Spring Valley Village Single-Family Home Sale Trends


Spring Valley Village Single-Family

Spring Valley real estate shares a lot in common with the other Villages. But some characteristics are unique to the neighborhood.

Customary, older Spring Valley homes are ranch-style bungalows on large wooded lots. This is due to the area’s early zoning ordinance. The ordinance limited dwellings to single-story homes. Lots should be no smaller than 10,000 square feet. The amendment of regulation in 1981 allowed two-story homes.

Some of the area’s older homes are sold as lots or tear-downs. These properties can sell for over $400,000, even at lot value.

Newly constructed homes are not prevalent in Spring Valley compared to other Villages. There are few available in the neighborhood, though.

Spring Valley features single-family homes in various architectural styles. Styles include Mediterranean, Contemporary, Modern, and Georgian. But traditional and ranch-style homes are more common in the neighborhood.

Spring Valley Village TX History


Like the other Memorial Villages, Spring Valley Village is a city steeped in history. Some of the neighborhood’s early settlers and landowners are commemorated in its street names.

In 1848, Spring Valley was home to some German settlers who built farms and sawmills in the large wooded area.

By the 1950s, the neighborhood housed a collection of small farms and homes. Interest in the area grew, and rumors spread that Houston was looking to annex the community. Concerned about zoning, residents filed a petition for incorporation. Some of these residents were descendants of Spring Valley’s original settlers.

In 1955, Spring Valley Village became a mayor-city council type of government after two elections.

Zoning was the primary factor in the city’s incorporation. The first ordinance was the regulation of the issuance of building permits. Other laws followed, including one for governing subdivisions. Under the old zoning ordinance, the homes are only one-story single-family dwellings. The minimum lot is a 10,000-square foot.

In 1981, significant changes were made to allow for the construction of 2-story homes.

Today, Spring Valley Village is one of the most desirable places to live west of Downtown Houston. It operates its police department. The Village Fire Department and the water authority serve all six villages.
