One of the first planned neighborhoods in Houston’s history, and recently named No. 4 Best Big City Neighborhood 2013, by CNN Money Magazine, The Heights, only four miles from downtown, is far enough from the speed of the city to unwind but close enough to save your nerves in traffic.
Originally, homes for sale in The Houston Heights were developed as a retreat for those wishing to escape the newly dense population of 1900’s Houston. A long time favorite of the young upwardly mobile type, the community still well serves those busy professionals desiring a more comfortable living experience. The Heights is a successful representation of a well-planned revitalization, began by the city decades back. The neighborhood, at the height of its hipness, is truly flowering.
The Heights boasts wide tree lined esplanades, perfect for walking the dog, or for those wanting to sit and read. While the Heights does provide for moments of piece and tranquility, do not doubt its ability to entertain.
