River Hollow Houston Real Estate Guide

Located within the vibrant Briar Hollow neighborhood, River Hollow is one of Houston’s Gated Communities.

Built in the early 1970s, River Hollow is a private gated community with townhomes and single-family homes.

Much of the neighborhood’s appeal stems from its location within a quiet secluded area, minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the Galleria.
