River Oaks

Houston River Oaks Homes

Considered as one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the state of Texas, the community of River Oaks lies just within Interstate 610, also known as the 610 Loop, making its location about 7 miles from downtown Houston. River Oaks homes also belong to one of the most expensive zip codes in the USA as listed by Forbes.com.

Distinctive for its status as an elite neighborhood of Houston, River Oaks homes are primarily graceful mansions built on expansive, landscaped lots and tree-lined streets that are mostly inspired by 19th century English, French, and Georgian architecture. Among these are historic homes designed by noted architects John Staub and Birdsall Briscoe, plus newer, modern homes designed by Hugo V. Neuhaus Jr., as well as Frederick James MacKie, Jr. and Karl Kamrath of the renowned architectural firm MacKie & Kamrath. As expected, the price ranges of these homes usually start from $1 million and can go well above $20 million.

Besides easy access to Houston, River Oaks residents enjoy numerous recreational amenities, from green open spaces and sports facilities at the River Oaks Park, to golfing at the stately River Oaks Country Club. Its course was designed by architect Donald Ross, who was known as one of the most prominent golf course designers in golfing history. Arts and culture are well-represented in River Oaks; the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra calls this prestigious community their home, and the excellently maintained River Oaks Theatre, a fine example of an Art Deco
structure built in the late 1930’s, can also be found here.
