River Oaks is a high-end enclave located west of downtown Houston and east of Uptown, sitting inside the 610 loop, south of Memorial Park. Buffalo Bayou as well as River Oaks Country Club mark the north end of the city. In the 1920s, developers and brothers Michael and William Hogg chose the 1,100 acres location that would become River Oaks to create one of the most carefully planned, designed and restricted areas in Texas. Quickly gaining notice, it soon became Houston’s most exclusive place to live. River Oaks real estate became one of the most sought after regions in the upper range markets. With its lush settings set into beautiful tree-lined streets, it is easy to see why River Oaks is still popular today with Houston’s most discerning homebuyers. In addition to the large historic homes, beautiful mid-century estates and newer custom builds that sit on large lots, River Oaks also includes some build-ready home sites. River Oaks homes for sale include a wide range of custom designs, meaning that no 2 homes appear alike. You will find mansions and estates among the beautiful properties available, including one English Country home with over 16,000 sq. ft. of living space that sits on over 3 acres.
