A charming, dynamic and constantly evolving neighborhood with a range of traditional, Victorian-style and bungalow homes, new townhomes, walking and biking trails, trendy restaurants, dive bars, cute boutiques, city parks, and proximity to the Galleria, Downtown Houston, Upper Kirby, Washington Heights and Montrose (not to mention easy access to nearly all highways), the Heights combines a cool, young vibe with rich historic character and is the epitome of what makes Houston so magical.
