The Greater Heights area of Houston comprises a large, mostly- residential neighborhood just minutes northwest of Downtown. The upscale homes and close proximity to the city center (plus easy access to three major interstate highways) make this a highly desirable location for commuters seeking the tranquility of the suburbs without sacrificing convenience.

Scores of historic houses date back to the area’s heyday as a popular vacation getaway for Houston’s elite in the 19th century, and today they contribute to the area’s timeless atmosphere. The diverse local dining and entertainment scenes cater to the varied tastes of the residents, and the popular cafes and shops along 19th Street give the feel of a much smaller town than a community at the heart of the 4th biggest city in America.
