The Houston Heights
The Houston Heights is wonderfully unique in every way. “The Heights,” as it is called, even looks different from the rest of Houston with period and reproduction Victorian structures and Mission bungalows nestled among storefronts. The changes that swept Houston’s Inner Loop in recent years have, not surprisingly, been interpreted differently in The Heights. New construction is controlled by the scarcity of available land and the effectiveness of residential deed restrictions. Urban professionals favor the Heights and families who appreciate its quality of life and short commute to downtown. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, The Heights is enjoying a vibrant revival and strong upsurge in home values. Existing homes are often extensively renovated and updated while new construction is encouraged to conform to neighborhood vernacular styles. Prices on existing bungalows and cottages begin in the high $200,000s and range upward depending on location, condition, and lot size; recent and new construction prices range from around $500,000 to well upwards of $1 million. The Heights offer some of Houston’s most innovative restaurants and shops.
