Afton Oaks Market Report
Dating back to 1950, Afton Oaks has been a convenient upscale community bordered by Westheimer, Union Pacific Railroad Tracks, 610 and Highway 59. This convenient location makes getting around Houston extremely easy with close freeway access and proximity to major shopping centers. In addition, Afton Oaks is located in close proximity to the Texas Medical Center, Downtown and The Galleria work centers. It is not uncommon to have views of these major areas from your front yard. This community of 525 homes offers luxury living with a range of homes from the original 1950’s one story brick homes to large new 2 story stucco homes representing a new era of development for Afton Oaks. Among the older homes are many that still carry the charm of the year they were built yet updates to reflect the modern buyer. Lot sizes range from roughly 8,000 – 10,000 square feet. To preserve the beauty of the community, in 1955 they chartered the Afton Oaks Civic Club to maintain the elegant status. Driving through this community you can see the efforts of the Civic club to maintain the look of the luxury living under these towering historic trees. It is a true combination of the preservation of a classic neighborhood from the 50’s mixed with the newer look of luxury in Houston. This community continues to be one of the most prominent communities due to location and demand. Drive through Afton Oaks to sample its charm and be sure to stop in to sample one of the local restaurants.
