River Oaks

Nestled in the heart of Houston. This elegant, architecturally pleasing subdivision is highly recognized by the magnificent mansions that line the streets and boulevards of this well respected community. Home to many CEOs, board directors, and entrepreneurs, River Oaks has earned its reputation of being one of Houston’s most exclusive neighborhoods.

Developed on approximately 1,200 acres in the early 1920s by William Hogg and his associate, Hugh Potter, the real estate here offers shady boulevards, spacious, meticulously landscaped lawns and breathtaking bayou views. Bordered by Buffalo Bayou to the north, Westheimer to the south, Shepherd Drive to the east and East Briar Hollow Lane to the west, its “close in” location is just four miles from the Central Business District.

Many of its original homes were designed by nationally recognized architects of the era, such as John F. Staub and Birdsall Briscoe. One magnificent example, “Bayou Bend,” was built by William Hogg’s sister, Ima. She later donated it and its extensive collection of early American furnishings and antiques and renowned gardens to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Another Staub-designed home, “Rienzi,” was similarly donated to MFAH in the 1990s.

Yet another well-known River Oaks landmark is the River Oaks Country Club. This gracious, highly recognized club is noted for its famous River Oaks Tennis Tournament and the ornamental light presentation during the holiday season.

River Oaks offers a variety of homes, old and new, that fulfill the diverse needs of its residents from grand estates spread across several acres to homes found on smaller plots of land. Whatever the case, River Oaks real estate is rich in history and beauty. Residents of River Oaks enjoy a comfortable, gracious lifestyle unequaled in the Houston area.
