The Many Reasons to Live in Braeswood Place

With its Inner Loop location just south of West University, Braeswood Place is the area of choice for those looking for larger homesites and close proximity to downtown Houston, the Texas Medical Center and the Museum District.

Developed in the late 1940s, Braeswood Place offers mature trees in a charming landscape accented by Brays Bayou winding through the community. Generously sized homesites allow for larger homes and backyards than what you might find in neighboring areas.

But probably the biggest draw of Braeswood Place is its location. Work at Rice University or the Medical Center and want to pop home at lunch? No problem! Houston’s vast museum district — with its 19 museums — is just up the road. The Children’s Museum of Houston is sure to be a favorite family hangout. And it will be easy to go see the fabulous dinosaurs at the Houston Museum of Natural Science again and again (and again!). The Houston Zoo is also nearby. And because it is, you’re sure to see the value in unlimited free visits with a zoo membership.

And yet, that’s not all. The many stores and restaurants found in the Galleria area are only about six miles away. Retail and bistros at Rice Village are even closer — just three miles. And you’ll get the best possible parking spot at the Nutcracker Market because NRG Center is less than three miles.

Like many areas of Houston established decades ago, the older ranch-style homes in Braeswood Place neighborhoods are giving way to newer homes filled with today’s must-have design features and money-saving energy efficiencies. J. Patrick Homes just opened a showcase home in Braes Heights and has two available homesites in Knollwood Village. Nine floor plans are available in Braeswood Place, all over 3,500 square feet, with one design offering nearly 4,600 square feet. Buyers can choose from four to five bedrooms, 3.5 to five bathrooms and two- to three-car garages. Open-concept design and spacious outdoor areas allow for easy entertaining. Game rooms and media rooms add to the fun. Homeowners enjoy lavish primary suites and nearly all secondary bedrooms feature generous walk-in closets. Numerous options give you the “power to personalize.” Pricing is from $1 million.

All of what makes Houston one of the nation’s best cities practically at your doorstep and a beautifully appointed home beyond the doorstep? No wonder Braeswood Place remains one of Houston’s choicest neighborhoods. Schedule a private tour of the J. Patrick showcase home at 3814 Tartan Lane in Houston to learn more.
