Braes Heights

Braes Heights is a neighborhood within the community of Braeswood Place, a home owners association founded in 1951. Braes Heights is a mainly single-family neighborhood inside Loop-610, east of the city of Bellaire, south of the cities of Southside Place and West University Place, west of the Texas Medical Center and the neighborhood of Old Braeswood, and north of Brays Bayou. The neighborhood was developed during the late 1940s into the1950s.

In recent years, many of Braes Heights’ ranch-style homes have been extensively renovated and expanded or torn down to accommodate larger houses. Many new homes are built by existing residents who love their neighborhood and don’t wish to move but need more space. All new-construction homes and many of the renovated homes are raised on higher foundations to guard against the possibility of another occurrence such as Tropical Storm Allison.

Lots in Braes Heights are generally larger than those in neighboring West University and lot prices, either cleared or with an existing structure, begin near $300,000 and range up depending on square footage and location. Prices for new and recently built homes begin in the $700,000s and range above $2 million; updated existing homes sell from the high $300,000s to upwards of $500,000. Older homes selling above $400,000 are likely to have updated kitchens and baths and possibly a fourth bedroom.

\Residents of Braes Heights have access to the Braeswood Place community center consisting of the McGovern-Stella Link Branch of the Houston Public Library, the Weekley Family

YMCA, a field for the West University Little League, and a senior services center center. Residents contributed almost $350,000 to renovate Karl Young Park with new playground equipment, drainage and landscaping.
