River Oaks Real Estate
Houston’s preeminent residential neighborhood was developed in the early 1920s by Will Hogg and Hugh Potter. Noted architects John Staub, Birdsall Briscoe, Charles Oliver and MacKie & Kamrath designed various stately homes that define the neighborhood, many of which sit far from the street on wide expanses of immaculate lawn or densely wooded acreage.
With Buffalo Bayou meandering through sections of the neighborhood and Memorial Park at its doorstep, River Oaks enjoys the best of both worlds – the natural world of lush Southern foliage and the vibrancy only inner-city life can provide. Entrenched in Houston history, many residents maintain a dedication to preserving the community’s fine architecture and serene lifestyle.
With a property owners’ association that strives to provide residents with outstanding services, including a neighborhood patrol and stringent deed-restriction enforcement River Oaks is one of Houston’s finest neighborhoods.
