Rice Military Single-Family Home Sale Trends


Rice Military Single-Family homes

Rice Military real estate properties are mostly new construction single-family homes.

Like most Houston neighborhoods, Rice Military underwent a shift in housing in the 1990s and 2000s. During the period, many professionals working Downtown started buying old properties in the area and opting to renovate or tear them down.

Thanks to growing demand, developers also took notice and converted a number of the neighborhood’s older properties into newer townhomes.

Rice Military homes typically feature 3-bedroom floor plans, spread over 2,000 to more than 3,600 square feet of living space. The most expensive Rice Military homes can offer 4 to 5 bedrooms. Homes in the area usually sit on small to mid-sized lots, ranging from 1,000 to 3,000 square feet.


Rice Military Houston Townhomes Sale Trends


Rice Military Townhomes

Like Camp Logan and a number of other Inner Loop neighborhoods, townhomes are on the rise in Rice Military.

Many developers have purchased lots in Rice Military and begun construction on new townhomes. The most common Rice Military townhomes for sale are in the $280,000 to $500,000 range. Townhome prices depend on the property’s lot size, style, and exact location.

The biggest difference between townhomes and single-family homes is that townhomes share a wall with one or more neighbors. However, similar to single-family homes, you still own the dirt from the center of the earth to infinity.

Some Rice Military townhomes are located within private gated communities, the most notable of which is Caceres. Townhomes in the area can feature 2 to 4 stories, with 3- to 5-bedroom floor plans.

Rice Military TX History


Once a rural community, Rice Military draws its name from its history.

Camp Logan, a World War I-era boot camp, used to occupy most of what is now Memorial Park and its surrounding areas. The land near Camp Logan was then owned by the prominent Rice family and the Howe family. Businessman William Marsh Rice is best known for leaving his fortune to the founding of Rice University.

In 1910, Bankers Trust Co. bought both tracts and subdivided the 155.5-acre plot. The development came to be known as the Rice Military Subdivision.

Rice Military covered the area south of Washington Avenue, north of Memorial Drive, west of Shepherd Drive, and east of Westcott Street. The neighborhood features around 400 homes.

Today, surrounding subdivisions are also referred to as Rice Military, including areas south of I-10 (Katy Freeway), north of the Buffalo Bayou, and east of Memorial Park, Glen Cove/Crestwood, and Camp Logan. The large area is also known as Rice Military/Washington Corridor.

Rice Military real estate used to be made up of bungalows and shotgun houses (small rectangular homes with rooms directly behind other). During the 1990s and 2000s, artists and young professionals took notice of the neighborhood. This influx of demand changed the face of Rice Military and turned it into a hip, mixed-use neighborhood.

Housing options in the area have since expanded to single-family homes, multi-level townhomes, and condominiums.
