Stablewood Houston History


Stablewood Houston History

The 76-acre area now known as Stablewood was previously a summer estate owned by Humble Co. co-founder Harry Wiess. The estate featured a John Staub-designed home, and a stable later converted into a house for entertaining guests.

Development in the area started in the early 1990s under Walter Mischer and Jim and Margaret Elkins. Mark Kilkenny was put at the helm of the development.

The neighborhood was modeled after Boulevard Oaks (North and South Boulevards). Streets were carefully planned, along with landscape and architectural guidelines. Original subdivision plans included 135 homesites with six oversized lots. It features two access points: a driveway gate and a guarded main entrance.

Stablewood was incorporated in 1992, the first private guard-gated subdivision in Houston.

Today, about 120 homes adorned Stablewood's wooded and private streets. It is one of Houston's most exclusive neighborhoods and one of its most expensive.
