River Oaks is one of Houston’s most prestigious residential neighborhoods, filled with expansive homes and elegant, sculpted lawns. Developed in the early 1920s by Will Hogg and Hugh Potter, it features the signature designs of noted architects John Staub, Birdsall Briscoe, Charles Oliver and MacKie & Kamrath.
Natural elements and a lovely neighborhood ambiance make River Oaks especially attractive to families who desire both exclusivity and proximity to the inner-city. Many River Oaks homes sit far from the curb on spacious yards or densely wooded acreage. Buffalo Bayou winds through sections of the neighborhood and Memorial Park is at its doorstep. The area’s finest shops, restaurants, businesses, medical practices and museums are conveniently located nearby.
River Oaks has a property owners’ association that strictly enforces deed-restrictions and provides neighborhood patrols. Residents enjoy a strong sense of community amidst the grandeur of some of Houston’s most exquisite homes.
