Museum Park Houston is one of Houston’s most culturally rich communities in the city.

Making it one of the most walkable neighborhoods in Houston. Uniquely situated just a couple of miles from the Houston Medical Center, this neighborhood offers one of the shortest commutes and it is connected to the Houston light rail system along Main and Fannin. Museum Park has many recently constructed luxury single family homes, townhomes, and high rise condominiums. The neighborhood is also home to the highest concentration of modern residential development in all of Houston.
Located between the city of Bellaire and the Texas Medical Center and Reliant stadium, this neighborhood has undergone a dramatic revitalization. Professionals from the Texas Medical Center have flooded this neighborhood for the great schools and superior location. Braeswood Place (or Old Braeswood as it is sometimes called) consists of approximately 2,200 mostly deed restricted homes and includes seven subdivisions: Ayrshire, Braes Heights, Braes Oaks, Braes Manor, Braes Terrace, Emerald Forest, and Southern Oaks. Although most of the homes were built in the mid-twentieth century, many of the older homes have been torn down and large, beautiful newly constructed homes have taken their place.
Meyerland is a great little neighborhood just outside Houston’s 610 Loop on the southwest side. Located along Brays Bayou, this neighborhood is full of wonderful little community parks and public green spaces. Furthermore, the bike trails and running trails that run along Brays Bayou add a great amenity for active Houstonians. The neighborhood also has a wonderful outdoor shopping district called Meyerland Plaza that provides a variety of high end shopping.
In recent years, professionals that work in the Texas Medical Center and the Uptown/Galleria area have flocked to this area for the affordable housing options, schools, and wonderful community. Most of the homes are 1 story, ranch-style homes that were built in the 50s and 60s. However, there has been a fair amount of new construction built in this area in recent years as well.
Montrose/Neartown is one of the most diverse and eclectic neighborhoods in the city of Houston. Home to some of the best restaurants and the best nightlife in the city, this neighborhood really is an ideal area of town for someone who really wants to experience a complete urban experience.

The housing options in this neighborhood are just as eclectic and diverse as the people who reside in the area. Mid-rise condominiums, renovated mansions, hip bungalows with great front porches, and newly developed townhome communities line tree-lined boulevards throughout the area. All of which lies within walking distance to a great urban experience.
