LOCATED JUST OUTSIDE OF THE 610 LOOP in northwest Houston, the Garden Oaks neighborhood is perfect for those craving the joys of suburban living without having to actually move to the edges of the city. Garden Oaks, established in the late 1930s, features bungalows, ranch-style homes, and stately brick residences on mostly massive lots, while Oak Forest offers similar homes on slightly smaller tracts of land.
Many of these houses were originally bought by WWII veterans who were thrilled to set up housekeeping with their families in what was once actual post-war suburbia, before Houston expanded and grew in around it. The community started seeing revitalization in the mid 1990s, when young families began snapping up homes. Today, it’s downright trendy to be a Garden Oaks resident, but there are still some deals to be had on wonderful homes here, particularly in Oak Forest. And the area’s fairly high elevation, by Houston standards, is yet another reason these houses will continue to go like hotcakes.
