Northwest section of Houston is another high-growth area, with homes ranging
in price from the mid-$70's to $450,000. The completion of Sam Houston
Toll Way, the upgrading of Hwy. 6 and FM 1960 as well as improvements to
Hwy. 290 have opened up accessibility to the region. One neighborhood of
note is Inwood Forest which was built in the late 1960's and 1970's. Inwood
Forest features a newly-renovated golf club, large lots and considerable
lots of square footage for the money. Many homes have pools and may be
purchased in the low $100,000 range.
homes in Garden Oaks are extremely diversified and date from the 1940's
and 1950's. Home styles range from two bedroom with cedar shakes on the
outside to large, two story homes with columns in front. Garden Oaks has
a close-in location that make it accessible to both the 610 Loop and Hwy.
290. Additionally, Garden Oaks has large lots - that new home construction
just cannot offer in today's building boom. So if you're in the mood for
a "fixer-upper" or simply want to buy now and add on later - take a look
at Garden Oaks.
