Tanglewood is one of Houston’s most exclusive and desirable neighborhoods with a charming architectural mix of spacious updated California Ranch homes and magnificent recently built Traditional, Mediterranean and Contemporary-style residences. In 1949 seven beautiful new homes were ready for the grand opening of Tanglewood. The homes were built to take advantage of the newly popular Houston lifesaver – air conditioning. In fact, the new Tanglewood had the distinction of being the most air-conditioned subdivision in the Southwest. Since most of the land was open prairie, each home site was planted with two large oak trees plus three oaks added on every corner. As a result, Tanglewood is now one of Houston’s most beautiful wooded areas. The Tanglewood Homes Association rigidly enforced Tanglewood’s deed restrictions. These included front and sideline setbacks for every home. Prior to any construction, plans had to be approved by an architectural control committee. The original ideals and restrictions of the developer are still carried out by the Tanglewood Homes Association. In 1951, Tanglewood was recognized by the National Association of Home Builders in Washington, D.C. as one of the five best-planned neighborhood subdivisions in the United States. In 1954, the Houston Country Club purchased 150 acres from Tanglewood and an additional 125 acres from the Bering family. In order to have enough land for a golf course, an additional 25 acres were also acquired. Today Tanglewood subdivision consists of 1,052 homes in these 15 sections. Prices for building sites exceed $1 million; recently built homes range well into the multi-millions.
