Garden Oaks/Oak Forest
Garden Oaks and Oak Forest are located in the Northwest part of Houston, just north of the 610 loop and east of highway 290. For the Buyer who is looking for a neighborhood of diverse home styles (e.g. bungalow, ranch, craftsman) in a neighborhood with deed restrictions, this area is definitely worth taking a look at. Homes have deep setbacks, larger backyards than most homes inside the 610 loop, and are surrounded by pine trees and grand magnolias. Many of the homes have been updated and some boast lot sizes >20,000 sq. ft. If you are looking for a home that is only a short drive from many of the city’s hottest restaurants, but want to avoid the overflow parking spilling onto your street, then these neighborhoods are a good pick for blending the best of the both the suburban and urban lifestyles.
