About Homes for Sale in River Oaks

Share

River Oaks, a landmark neighborhood and one of Houston’s most exclusive residential areas, was developed in the early 1920’s by Mike and Will Hogg, sons of a former governor of Texas, and their associate, Hugh Potter. Since its earliest days, the centerpiece of River Oaks has been its namesake boulevard, a broad avenue of stately houses leading to the River Oaks Country Club’s grand entry. Spreading out from this hub are the residential neighborhoods of Avalon Place, Royden Oaks, Oak Estates, Kettering Oaks, Afton Oaks, Highland Village/Lynn Park, Glendower Court and the Upper Kirby District.

Over the years these neighborhoods have flourished and matured into luscious views characterized by wide, oak lined streets and beautiful mature landscape. These elegant homes, old and new, pay tribute to traditional architectural styles that continues to undergo a thoughtful transition. New construction keeps pace with frequent additions and renovations that are in demand with today’s current market. River Oaks also boasts an impressive roster of homes designed by some of the country’s premier residential architects, including: John Staub, Birdsall P. Briscoe, Hiram Salisbury, and Howard Barnstone. It should come as no surprise that the median home in River Oaks has more than 3,600 square feet and an appraised value of over $1,000,000; property values range to greater than $20M.

But it’s not only the grand mansions that draw onlookers to River Oaks. This community provides plenty of boutiques, restaurants and art galleries that give the inner-loop spot its character. At the River Oaks Shopping Center, restaurants and retail live alongside the historic River Oaks Theatre—the oldest working theater in the city. Call Keenan Properties today for a stroll down luxury lane!
