A Home Town Near Downtown

Woodland Heights

About Woodland Heights

While the Houston Heights is technically our home base, we wouldn't have chose 927 Studewood as permanent new location if it hadn't meant we'd be able to walk right across the street to Woodland Heights, a neighborhood that is just as much a part of our identity. Developed in 1907, shortly after the Houston Heights, by William A. Wilson, this neighborhood has always been envisioned as "a hometown near Downtown." Strongly residential and lined with mature trees(it is woodland, after all), this neighborhood is about as quaint as they come thanks to several layers of neighborhood character protection tools.

While the Houston Heights is technically our home base, we wouldn't have chose 927 Studewood as permanent new location if it hadn't meant we'd be able to walk right across the street to Woodland Heights, a neighborhood that is just as much a part of our identity. Developed in 1907, shortly after the Houston Heights, by William A. Wilson, this neighborhood has always been envisioned as "a hometown near Downtown." Strongly residential and lined with mature trees(it is woodland, after all), this neighborhood is about as quaint as they come thanks to several layers of neighborhood character protection tools.

In a nutshell:

  • While this neighborhood is heavily connected to and bordered by bustling commercial centers like Downtown and even the more business-minded Houston Heights, it is strictly NOT business here. The blanket deed restrictions, historic district at the heart of the neighborhood, and large collection of Special Minimum Lot Size blocks keep this a predominantly residential area.
  • That mans the restaurants and shops this area enjoys mostly belong to the surrounding neighborhoods. It also makes for slightly less walkability, though it is bordered to the south by the White Oak Greenway and sprawling Stude Park.
  • True to Houston form, what we call Woodland Heights is actually a collection of 30+ separately platted subdivisions that are all deed restricted, though governed by slightly different restrictive covenants. You'll want to consult with the Woodland Heights Civic Association (or us) to gain some clarity.

Why would I live here?

  • It is rare to have such a strongly intact residential neighborhood in the city's innermost urban core, and Woodland Heights is one of them! There is a certain piece of mind knowing that you will almost always be surrounded by other single-family homes. The deed restrictions even prevent small businesses like law practices from operating within these bounds.
  • Location, location, location. The tagline certainly holds true with extraordinarily easy access to Downtown via Houston Avenue. That straight shot to Washington Avenue also gains you access to Memorial Park/Montrose in a minute, River Oaks in a rush, and 45 in a flash.
  • The quality of life is pretty phenomenal here. Quaint and quiet most of the year, though Lights in the Heights makes for a great neighborhood-wide holiday party. Dining and shopping is accessed via White Oak, Studewood, and Pecore, which becomes 11th Street. Plus, the neighborhood is bordered by some of the city's oldest parks, Woodland Park and Stude Park.

What should I know when buying here?

  • You'll want to be familiar with where the historic district is and what sort of property restrictions it entails, especially since the district has yet to have set Design Guidelines saying exactly what one can and can't build or remodel.
  • The Deed Restrictions are fairly consistent across the various subdivisions, though some of the setbacks and other restrictions are stricter than others. You'll want to consult WHCA with any of these questions.
  • The housing stock is a good mix of old and new.

What should I know when selling here?

  • By and large, buyers still prefer being situated away from the busier streets of White Oak, Yale, Heights, 19th, 20th, and Studewood. Your proximity to these thoroughfares does affect your home value.
  • Data does suggest that lots and older homes within the historic district are valued less than those outside.
  • Prices per square foot vary enormously in our neighborhood based on a home's location, age, lot size, and many other factors.

How is the rental market?

  • Houston Heights has a pretty strong rental market, from the large, newer complexes on the far edges to the smaller multifamily buildings and single-family home rentals.
  • The quality of life for renters here is pretty enviable, with the amazing and walkable collection of local shopping and greenspace, plus the quick and easy access to some of Houston's strongest job centers.
