West University Home Buying Guide


west u houston neighborhood map


West U is an appealing residential community especially for professionals. It spans from Bissonet Street to Bellaire and Holcombe Boulevards, between Community Drive and Kirby Drive.

Nicknamed “The Neighborhood City”, West University is mainly a “bedroom community” for professionals working in the area and nearby Texas Medical Center. West U boasts of a central location near Rice University, Downtown Houston, the Galleria, Museum District, and Montrose.

The real estate inventory is mostly composed of single-family homes, with some townhomes, and condominiums. Homes styles vary from traditional Georgian style two-storey homes, to contemporary, Tudor, New Orleans, and French designed homes.

Home prices in West University range from $500,000 to over $1,800,000. The average number of bedrooms and bathrooms is 3.75 and 3.20 respectively.

Stringent zoning laws and deed restrictions within the city requires a 40% open space on every lot. Urban Forester, a recent addition to the city, protects the neighborhood from losing too many of its greenery; thus maintaining its small town atmosphere.
