Perhaps the neighborhoods of Highland Village and Lynn Park, often identified together only as Highland Village, are not as widely recognized as their River Oaks and Afton Oaks neighbors, but they offer the same close-in convenience and a great deal of charm.
Together, their 250+ homes fill out a narrow niche between Suffolk and Drexel from Westheimer to Richmond. In such a premiere location, Highland Village is just minutes from Downtown with easy access to Loop 610 and Hwy. 59.
Aside from Highland Village's fantastic location within the city, it is neighbors with the prestigious retail center that became its namesake. The sophisticated Highland Village is an exclusive shopping and dining destination that has been catering to every need and whim of Houstonians since 1952. The finest names in fashion and home accessories line Westheimer next to one-of-a-kind boutiques. Some of the headliners include Anthropoligie, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, Chico's, Crate & Barrel, Coldwater Creek, Cole Haan, Kiehl's, L'Occitane, Marmi, Pottery Barn, Restoration Hardware, Sharper Image, Waterworks, and William Sonoma. Highland Village is also the exclusive Houston location for Tootsies, Tossini, lucy and Donald J Pliner. Meanwhile, the see-andbe- seen set can be found dining at P. F. Chang's, RA Sushi Bar, Smith & Wollensky, and Escalante's with its breezy outdoor patio. Also nearby is the highly regarded Central Market.
The ranch-style homes in the Highland Village area offer affordable alternatives in the shadows of some of the most expensive real estate in the city. With lot sizes ranging in the 7,000 to 8,000+ square feet, the charm of the original one-story 1950s homes still shines through as many have enjoyed extensive renovations in the last several decades. Attached garages have become family rooms, sun porches are enclosed and bathrooms are added. The well-kept homes feature tile and hardwoods, plantation shutters and crown molding, recessed lighting, gas ovens, and formals in an open floor plan that invites entertaining.
New and recent construction homes are two-stories of traditional andcontemporary design offering the latest in amenities.
Highland Village and Lynn Park are the perfect option for buyers looking to stay close to the heart of the city with immediate access to Downtown, the Galleria and all Houston has to offer.
