About Greater Heights / Houston Heights, Houston, TX
Houston Heights Homes for Sale
The Houston Heights area is very unique and quite different from the community around it. Located in the Inner Loop of Houston and northeast of Downtown, it was first established back in the late 1800s. It was one of the nation’s first “master-planned” communities with streets, parks, utilities, schools and a business district. It was annexed in 1917 by the city. There are three historic districts within the Heights area: the Houston Heights Historic District West, the Houston Heights Historic District East, and the Houston Heights Historic District South. Each section has enforced deed restrictions to keep the neighborhood’s character and charm. With its rich architecture and local shops nearby, it is a popular area for all types of homeowners. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Heights has enjoyed a revitalization over the years. Residents enjoy attending First Saturday Arts Market created for local artists to display and sell original works of art. It really is a wonderful place to call home because of its eclectic feel and proximity to downtown.
