River Oaks is the Crème de la Crème of Houston Real Estate
Established in the 1920s by Hugh Potter and William and Michael Hogg, River Oaks is hands-down one of the most exclusive and revered locations to live in Houston. You can’t deny it. The words “River Oaks” alone carry with them a rich history and the long line of Houstonians who have shaped this city’s, this state’s, even this country’s history. From billionaire TV mogul, Tilman Fertitta, to powerhouse philanthropist, Lynn Wyatt, the residents of River Oaks are just as important to this city as ever.
However, as displayed by the new homes being built in the area, new residents want to make their own mark on such a prestigious neighborhood while still honoring its legacy. A custom builder in the Houston area since 1988, Frankel Building Group understands this immense responsibility to uphold the neighborhood’s traditions while also fully catering to our client’s custom desires.
A Neighborhood that Has Everything within Arm’s Reach
River Oaks is highly revered for a reason. It’s within arm’s reach of practically everything you could ever need or want. The neighborhood houses the River Oaks Country Club, one of the most exclusive country clubs in the nation, with a PGA-worthy golf course to boot. It’s also home to River Oaks Elementary School and St. John’s School, the best Houston-area private school in 2019, according to Houstonia Magazine.
Just minutes away sits the city’s best hot spots and shopping centers, including The Galleria, the Texas Medical Center, Downtown, the River Oaks District (pictured left) and more.
We’re Experts in Upholding the Deeply Held History of River Oaks
While the neighborhood as a whole isn’t considered a historic landmark, many houses in the area have been designated as Houston City Landmarks. Some have even been listed in the National Register of Historic Places, including Bayou Bend, the former home of Houston philanthropist Ima Hogg. That’s why it’s essential that you partner with a luxury home builder whose architects understand the importance of honoring this historic district.
While River Oaks contains some of the city’s most impressive homes, we are frequently contacted with questions about dated layouts, the usability of space, energy efficiency, and damage due to age. As experts in both architecture and construction, we’ll examine every concern you have and check off every box on your wishlist while still respecting the neighborhood in a tasteful way.
