Gallery of Houston Homes

Made up of just two streets, Nantucket and Potomac, and bordered by Woodway and Westheimer to the north and south, Westhaven Estates was established in the 1950s as a singlefamily home neighborhood nestled between Briargrove and Tanglewood and across from the Houston Country Club.

However, in the late '70s, prominent developers began transforming this single-family subdivision into a premiere neighborhood of patio homes and townhouses. Large, upscale homes were built on zero lot lines to provide for less outside maintenance and larger square footage within. There are currently more than 830 residences, with even more expected as development continues and lots are subdivided to make way for new townhomes and patio homes that replace the few original homes left.

Deed restrictions prohibit commercial businesses in Westhaven Estates, but full-service shopping centers featuring high-quality food markets, restaurants, pharmacies, coffee bars, bakeries, and health clubs, as well as park areas, fountains, walking and jogging trails, thrive on the edge of this quiet and secluded neighborhood.

Located only eight miles west of downtown Houston and one and one-half miles from the famed Galleria and Uptown District, residents enjoy easy, quick connections to major freeways including I-610 (West Loop) and US 59 (Southwest Freeway).

Schools serving Westhaven Estates are the highly rated Briargrove Elementary School, Grady Middle School and Lee High School. However, considering the high density living that is the hallmark of the neighborhood, Westhaven Estates attracts mostly empty nesters and young working professionals who appreciate its convenient location and carefree, low-maintenance lifestyle.

Formado por sólo dos calles, Nantucket y Potomac, y limita con Woodway y Westheimer al norte y al sur, Westhaven Estates se estableció en la década de los 1950’s como un barrio de casa unifamiliar situado entre Briargrove y Tanglewood y frente al Country Club de Houston.

Sin embargo, en los últimos años 70’s, los desarrolladores empezaron a transformar esta importante subdivisión de familia en un barrio de casas estreno de patio y townhomes. Grandes, casas de lujo construidas en lotes de cero líneas para proveer mantenimiento afuera y mas pies cuadrados adentro. En este momento hay más de 830 residencias, con aún más esperando como el desarrollo continúa y los lotes se subdividen para dar paso a nuevas townhomes y casas de patio, que sustituyen a los pocos hogares originales a la izquierda.

Restricciones de escrituras prohíben a las empresas comerciales en Westhaven Estates, pero dentro se encuentran centros comerciales de servicios con los mercados de alta calidad de alimentos, restaurantes, farmacias, cafeterías, panaderías y clubes de salud, así como las áreas de parque, fuentes, senderos para caminar y trotar, prosperan en orilla de este barrio tranquilo y apartado.

Situado a sólo ocho millas al oeste del centro de Houston y una y media millas de la famosa Galleria y Uptown District, los residentes disfrutan de fácil, conexiones con las autopistas principales, incluyendo el interestatal I-610 (West Loop) y la autopista 59 (Southwest Freeway).

Escuelas que sirven a Westhaven Estates son las altamente valoradas, Briargrove Elementary School, Grady Middle School y Lee High School. Sin embargo, considerando la alta densidad de vida que es el sello distintivo del barrio, Westhaven Estates atrae a parejas sin hijos y los jóvenes profesionales que aprecian su ubicación y despreocupado, estilo de vida bajo mantenimiento.
