Winfield Gate Houston History

Winfield Gate broke ground sometime in 2011. It is a fairly new luxury development in River Oaks, one of Houston’s earliest exclusive neighborhoods.

It is named after Winfield House, the US Ambassador’s London residence, and following that theme, the community’s floor plans are named for ambassadors.

Houston-based Rohe & Wright Builders, the same developers behind upscale communities like Caceres, Crain Square, Cheyne Walk, and Cadogan Place, spearheaded the project.

Brothers Will and Mike Hogg, along with Hugh Potter, spearheaded River Oaks’ development in 1923. They purchased a 200-acre tract of land around the River Oaks Country Club. Nearby Avalon Place was developed some years later, in the 1930s.

Today, both neighborhoods feature some of the most expensive and most sought after real estate in Houston. Winfield Gate exemplifies the area’s exclusivity – with its Palladian-inspired, upscale townhomes.
