River Oaks. Even taken separately, the words appeal. But when combined, they exemplify gracious living in Houston - a way of life as beautifully crafted as heirloom silver.
Without question, River Oaks is Houston's best-known neighborhood. Here you will find an exceptional collection of 1,600 splendid mansions, secluded estates and other graceful homes, where the lawns are neatly manicured and profusions of azaleas bloom beneath ancient trees.
The sweeping streets in this area, often named for golf courses, are woven beneath expansive oaks and tall pines and around pocket parks. At the borders of the River Oaks area is a host of services that make living here an easy pleasure, including boutique shopping centers, choice restaurants and a host of ancillary services, as well as the city's finest schools.
A Respected History
In 1923, two of the founders of River Oaks, brothers Will and Mike of the esteemed Hogg family, wrote these words: "[Our] aim and ideal is to produce for the Houston citizen of discriminating taste a complete community in the most advantageous locality."
The Hogg brothers joined with their friend, Hugh Potter, to build the neighborhood of their dreams around a country club. The trio's success is evident from the sense of order and serenity one feels when entering River Oaks from the busy city that surrounds it.
Tradition in Transition
Since its earliest days, the centerpiece of River Oaks has been its namesake boulevard, a broad avenue of stately houses leading to the River Oaks Country Club's grand portico. Spreading out from this hub are the residential neighborhoods of Avalon Place, Royden Oaks, Oak Estates, Kettering Oaks, Afton Oaks, Highland Village/Lynn Park, Glendower Court and the Upper Kirby District.
These neighborhoods have flourished and matured over the years. Great homes, old and new, pay tribute to a wealth of architectural styles, including chateau, plantation, Spanish, Tudor, Palladian and traditionally styled one-stories - creating what has been described as "elegant individuality."
The River Oaks area continues to undergo a thoughtful transition. New construction keeps pace with frequent additions and renovations. Recent decades have seen the development of handsome patio and garden designs throughout the area.
Occasionally, River Oaks invites the rest of the world to experience its exceptional charms. There is the internationally famed tennis tournament, the springtime Azalea Trail garden tour and the glisten of a million lights at Christmastime. But, more often, River Oaks quietly remains one of Houston's most exclusive addresses.
River Oaks Property Owners Association
River Oaks maintains its desirability today, as it will into the future, through the River Oaks Property Owners Association, which keeps careful watch over deed restrictions and aesthetic values, cares for the parks and esplanades and operates an efficient 24-hour patrol service.
As its residents say: "To visit River Oaks is a pleasure. To live here is a reward."
