Gallery of Houston Homes

The appeal of these small subdivisions on either side of Willowick between Westheimer and San Felipe is obvious - it's their proximity to River Oaks and their close-in location. In fact, Royden Oaks lies directly to the west of River Oaks with lots on River Oaks' Timber Lane backing up to those on Royden Oaks' Maconda Street named after the original landowner's daughter. Just across Willowick lies Oak Estates.

Residents of these neighboring communities enjoy the business and shopping opportunities in Downtown Houston or the Uptown/Galleria area and are an easy walk away from the outstanding retailers and restaurants of Highland Village, a public library, and fine schools, both public and private. Located in the Houston Independent School District, they are also near two of the city's best private schools, St. John's and River Oaks Baptist.

Nearby River Oaks Park features playground equipment, tennis courts, a basketball court, and a civic building, while 1,505-acre Memorial Park offers wooded settings for golf, tennis, biking, jogging, swimming, volleyball, and baseball, as well as bridle paths and picnic areas. The private Briar Club has its own swimming, tennis, dining, and workout facilities.

Royden Oaks' wrought iron street lamps in are the same as those throughout River Oaks and street signs are made of black and white mosaic tile. As in River Oaks, residents have back-door trash pick up, and constables hired by the property owners association patrol the area.

Royden Oaks was developed in the late 1940s by Frank Sharp, with mostly ranch style houses on just over 200 lots. Likewise, Oak Estates was developed in the 1940s by S.N. Adams with approximately 150 properties on the former site of a private sports club. Both neighborhoods have seen new construction replace many of their original homes. On some blocks, as many as half have been torn down and replaced with grand-scale new homes. Styles range from Mediterranean and Georgian to French and contemporary, and some have quarters over the garages.

The property owners associations here are adamant about preserving their subdivisions' integrity by enforcing deed restrictions. Both areas are noted for beautiful oak trees and quiet, neighborly ambience. In Oak Estates, most of the streets were recently redone with new concrete and curbs.

Close-in location and large lots, typically from 8,500 to 17,000 square feet, have made the neighborhood attractive for new homes. Plus, lots can cost about half as much as those in River Oaks depending on location.

La apelación de estas pequeñas subdivisiones a cada lado de Willowick entre Westheimer y San Felipe es obvio - es su proximidad a River Oaks.  De hecho, Royden Oaks se encuentra directamente al oeste de River Oaks con lotes en River Oaks’ Timber Lane respaldando a esos de Royden Oaks’ Maconda llamados después de la hija del propietario original. Justo al cruzar Willowick se encuentra Oak Estates.

Los residentes de estas comunidades disfrutan de las oportunidades empresarias y de compras en el centro de Houston o en Uptown / Galleria y a pocos pasos de tiendas y restaurantes extraordinarios de Highland Village, una biblioteca pública, y escuelas finas, tanto públicas como privadas. Situado en el Distrito Escolar Independiente de Houston, también están cerca de dos de los mejores colegios privados de la ciudad, St. John’s & River Oaks Baptist.

El parque River Oaks cercano tiene equipo de recreo, pistas de tenis, una cancha de baloncesto, y un edificio civil, mientras que 1.505 hectáreas de bosque Memorial Park ofrece opciones para practicar golf, tenis, ciclismo, jogging, natación, volleyball y béisbol, así como caminos corridos y áreas de picnic. El club privado Briar Club tiene su propia piscina, tenis, restaurantes y las instalaciones de entrenamiento.

Las farolas de hierro de Royden Oaks son los mismos que en River Oaks y letreros de la calle son de mosaico negro y blanco. Al igual que en River Oaks, los residentes tienen acceso a servicio de basura de puerta trasera, y policías contratados por la asociación de propietarios.

Royden Oaks se desarrolló en la década de 1940’s por Frank Sharp, en su mayoría con casas estilo rancho en poco más de 200 lotes. Así mismo, Oak Estates se desarrolló en la década de 1940 por S.N. Adams, con aproximadamente 150 propiedades en la antigua sede de un club deportivo privado. Ambos barrios han visto la nueva construcción reemplazar a muchos de sus hogares originales. En algunos bloques, hasta la mitad han sido demolidas y reemplazadas con gran escala de nuevos hogares. Estilos comienzan desde el Mediterráneo y Georgiano al Francés y contemporáneo, y algunos con estadía en los garajes.

La asociación de propietarios está firmemente decidida a preservar la integridad de sus subdivisiones mediante la aplicación de restricciones de escrituras. Ambas zonas se caracterizan por hermosos robles y tranquilidad, el ambiente de vecindad. En Oak Estates, la mayoría de las calles se renovaron recientemente con cemento nuevo y curvas.

Lotes grandes normalmente de 8.500 a 17.000 pies cuadrados, han hecho el barrio atractivo para los nuevos hogares. Además, los lotes pueden costar alrededor de la mitad que los de River Oaks, dependiendo de la ubicación.
