Upper Kirby Luxury Real Estate & Most Expensive Homes

Guide To Upper Kirby Luxury Real Estate

Upper Kirby map

Formerly a neglected area crisscrossed with some of Houston’s main roads, the Upper Kirby District of today is a vibrant and trendy neighborhood of elegant homes, luxury highrises, and upscale restos and shops.

Like most of the Inner Loop’s hottest neighborhoods, location plays a major role in Upper Kirby’s newfound popularity. Centrally located amid more established and older neighborhoods, Upper Kirby luxury real estate blends seamlessly with the area’s chef-owned restaurants, bars, lounges, and upscale boutiques.

Accessibility is not a problem either, as the district straddles the Southwest Freeway, and has the Buffalo Speedway and Westheimer Road nearby. Business and job centers like Downtown and the Texas Medical Center are within minutes of Upper Kirby homes.

With the Greenway Plaza sitting adjacent to the district and the Galleria a short drive away, Upper Kirby also has excellent access to Houston’s best retail and entertainment hubs. Dining and nightlife options in nearby Montrose are within easy reach, though the district itself has plenty of options within its borders.

The most expensive Upper Kirby homes are zoned to some of the HISD’s most highly regarded schools, including Lamar High School and St. John’s School.

Another factor that makes Upper Kirby so popular among homebuyers is its diverse collection of luxury real estate. Homes in the area include vintage traditional and patio homes that date back to the 1920s, single-family homes and posh townhomes in gated communities, and chic highrise condos.

Upper Kirby Neighborhood Information

Upper Kirby is nestled in the area south of River Oaks, west of Neartown/Montrose, and east of Greenway Plaza.

Located just a few minutes southwest of Downtown Houston, the district’s borders are defined roughly as the Buffalo Speedway to the west, Westheimer Road to the north, Shepherd Drive to the east, and the Southwest Freeway to the south.

During the late 1980s, Upper Kirby was an unnamed community of aging commercial buildings and infrastructure. Efforts to renew the neighborhood was a community effort, driven by both home and business owners. The result is a pedestrian-friendly and hip district characterized by its upscale boutiques, vintage red phone booths, and its lively dining and nightlife scene.

Like Midtown, Montrose, and EaDo, it is not uncommon to see new construction in Upper Kirby as its revitalization and redevelopment continues on today.

New construction homes, including several multi-level properties, are among the most expensive in Upper Kirby. These custom-built single-family homes and townhomes are typically located within gated communities that offer luxury amenities and services.

Architectural styles, sizes, and prices vary. Location, age, and size are major factors in pricing, though a typical 4/4 Upper Kirby home for sale can sell for $1,500,000 to upwards of $3,000,000.

Upper Kirby condos for sale are also popular options, since these properties offer great luxury amenities without the high maintenance fees often associated with homeownership.

Houston’s Upper Kirby District is within the 77098 zip code.

Apart from reaping the benefits of its central location, the neighborhood is also a destination in itself, with its collection of upscale boutiques, fine dining restaurants, bars, and lounges.

Upper Kirby’s restaurants offer feasts in various cuisines, making the neighborhood quite a hotspot for foodies.
