Westhaven Estates TX History
The 76-acre area now known as Westhaven Estates was previously a summer estate. It was owned by Humble Co. co-founder Harry Wiess. The estate featured a John Staub-designed home, and a stable that was later converted into a house for entertaining guests.
Development in the area started in the early 1990s, under Walter Mischer and Jim and Margaret Elkins. Mark Kilkenny was put at the helm of the development.
The neighborhood was modeled after Boulevard Oaks (North and South Boulevards). Streets were carefully planned, along with landscape and architectural guidelines. Original subdivision plans included 135 homesites with six oversized lots. It features two access points: a driveway gate and a guarded main entrance.
Westhaven Estates was incorporated in 1992, the first private guard-gated subdivision in Houston.
Today, Westhaven Estates’s wooded, private streets are adorned with about 120 homes. It is one of Houston’s most exclusive neighborhoods, as well as one of its most expensive.
