Timbergrove Manor/Lazybrook

Timbergrove Manor and its sister neighborhood, Lazybrook, quiet, deed-restricted neighborhoods along T.C. Jester inside Loop-610, are a pocket of Old Houston whose rolling terrain, large lots and tree-lined winding streets are attracting an influx of new residents. Many residents have been here since the neighborhoods were established in the 1950s, and some who grew up in the area have returned to raise their families here.

Timbergrove Manor/Lazybrook straddles 11th Street and stretches just past Ella Blvd. to the west and to Durham on the east, and there is easy access to I-10 and to the North Loop-610. The original deed restrictions have recently been amended and updated to preserve the suburban feel of the neighborhood.

One of the glories of the area is West 11th Street Park. This beautiful 20.2-acre pocket wilderness, acquired by the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department in 2007, is the largest track of native Texas forest inside the Loop-610 to be added to the city’s inventory in recent years. Although used as parkland for years by area residents, the 20-plus acre tract between T.C. Jester and Ella was in fact owned by HISD who had purchased it from the University of Texas in 1949. Spurred by its possible sale for private development, Timbergrove Manor/ Lazybrook neighbors lobbied the city to purchase the land and officially make it a park. Aided by generous private donations, the city secured most of the tract in 2007 and a subsequent grant to the City of Houston Parks and Recreation Department from the Texas Legislature purchased the rest.

Starting prices for original homes hover around $200,000; those that have been updated have edge above $300,000 up to the mid-$400,000s; new construction home prices range upwards from the high $500,000s.
