Meyerland Houston Real Estate and Neighborhood Guide

Like neighboring Bellaire, Meyerland exudes a family-friendly, small-town vibe. Old trees, traditional homes, and wide streets accentuate the neighborhood’s character and add to its overall appeal.

Meyerland is located just west of Loop 610, with Bellaire to the north, Linkwood/Woodside to the east, and Braes Oaks and Sharpstown to the west. West University is further east of the community, just across the freeway. The Braes Bayou runs through the middle of the neighborhood.

Meyerland’s location adjacent to Loop 610 gives it excellent access to key Houston business, cultural, and entertainment centers, including Downtown, the Texas Medical Center, the Museum District, and the Galleria.

Built on former rice fields, Meyerland owes much – and not just its name – to the Meyer family. Three generations of the family were key players to the neighborhood’s development and eventual growth.

The Meyerland Community Improvement Association (MCIA) is another key factor that contributed to helping the neighborhood flourish. The association hires additional security patrols and organizes community events, among other things.

The neighborhood was developed in sections and each section has its own set of deed restrictions.

Meyerland features old homes from the 50s and 60s, as well as newer construction single-family homes. The neighborhood is often compared to Bellaire because both are zoned to the same schools, though price-wise, Meyerland real estate tend to be more afforable.

Architectural styles vary, though Traditional is more prevalent than others. Mid-Century Modern, a style developed from 1933 to 1965, is also quite popular in Meyerland homes for sale. A number of older homes have been updated – though owners tend to stay true to the style.

Neighborhoods near Meyerland includes the Galleria, Bellaire, Gulfton, Braes Oaks, Sharpstown, West University, River Oaks, and Linkswood.

Meyerland Houston is under the 77096 Harris County zip code.
