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.
