Frostwood Houston Real Estate Guide

Home to upscale manors and vintage estates, Frostwood features exclusivity, great location, and some of Houston’s most expensive real estate.

A small residential enclave of over 300 luxury homes, Frostwood is a private community with large wooded lots, multi-award winning schools, and a central location within the Memorial area.

Residents enjoy:

  • EXCLUSIVITY: The median sales price of Frostwood homes is at over $900,000. The community’s strong property values make it one of the Most Expensive Neighborhoods in Houston. (See also The Salary Requirements Needed to Live Comfortably in Houston’s Best Neighborhoods.)
  • PROXIMITY TO EMPLOYMENT CENTERS: The community is around 3 miles away from the Westchase District, 5 miles from the Energy Corridor and Galleria. Memorial City’s medical complex (Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center) is located just a few blocks away from Frostwood homes.
  • MULTI-AWARD WINNING SCHOOLS: Three National Blue Ribbon Schools serve the community: Memorial High School, Memorial Middle School, and Frostwood Elementary. The highly regarded Spring Branch Independent School District (SBISD) has some of the best schools in the Greater Houston area.
  • FANTASTIC ACCESS: Nestled near where Katy Freeway (I-10) and Sam Houston Parkway (Beltway 8) meet, Frostwood homes have excellent access to some of the area’s main arteries, including Gessner Road and Memorial Drive.
  • NEAR RETAIL AND ENTERTAINMENT: Frostwood’s proximity to Memorial City gives residents easy access to Memorial City Mall, a shopping center with more than 140 retail shops and restaurants. Anchor stores include JCPenney, Dillard’s, Macy’s, Sears, and Target. Other options aren’t too far away. The CityCentre and Town & Country Village are both a short drive away.
  • LARGE WOODED LOTS: Homes in Frostwood typically sit on spacious wooded lots (by Houston standards), ranging from 9,000 to more than 13,000 square feet. Like most homes in the Memorial area, the community’s homes have ample setbacks and are deed-restricted.
  • ACTIVE HOMEOWNERS ASSOCIATION: The Frostwood Community Improvement Association handles the community’s deed restrictions and building guidelines, helping keep the neighborhood’s over all look and atmosphere.

Frostwood real estate can be tricky to navigate. Busy main roads (like Memorial Drive and Gessner Road) can affect resale values. Some homes can sell at a premium, while others sell at slightly lower prices.

Frostwood TX History

The area wherein Frostwood lies used to be mostly rural, with farms and sawmills dotting the lush expanse around the Buffalo Bayou.

A couple of things contributed to the area’s development: Houston’s housing boom and subsequent westward expansion; and the completion and improvement of roads leading to downtown.

In the years after WWII, developers started building subdivisions along the Buffalo Bayou. Most of the homes built during this period were marketed toward middle- and upper-class families.

During the same period in the 1950s and 60s, Houston was expanding its borders. The city started annexing unincorporated neighborhoods outside Loop 610, including Frostwood and the rest of the Memorial West area. The nearby Memorial Villages filed for incorporation and became independent cities.

Today, Frostwood is among the most expensive neighborhoods in Houston. Strong property values in the area can be attributed to a number of things, including the community’s deed restrictions, active homeowners association (Frostwood Community Improvement Association), and central location.
