Oak Estates Houston Maps: Neighborhood Review
Oak Estates was developed by S.N. Adams in the 1940s, at about the same time as the adjacent Highland Village. Having previously worked at the River Oaks Corp., Adams ensured both neighborhoods are as similar to neighboring River Oaks.
The neighborhood is south of San Felipe St, west of Willowick Rd., north of Westheimer Rd., and east of the Union Pacific Railroad tracks running along Mid Lane. A ditch that drains flood water also runs along the freight rail tracks.
It is interesting to note that some people think Oak Estates only runs until Drexel Drive. As visible on these new maps, the Willowick Road serves as a boundary to Royden Oaks on its west.
The neighborhood is divided into 2 sections. The first section includes the northern part of Suffolk Drive, eastern part of Overbrook Ln, and the streets of San Felipe Rd, Meadow Lake Ln, Piping Rock Ln, Ella Lee Ln, and Drexel Drive.
