Westhaven Estates at a Glance

Sotheby's International Realty
Established in the 1950s, Westhaven Estates is a single-family home neighborhood nestled between Briargrove and Tanglewood. The boundaries are Woodway on the north, Westheimer on the south, Nantucket to the east, and Potomac to the west. Westhaven Estates is situated only eight miles west of downtown Houston and only one and one-half miles from the famed Galleria.

In the late ’70s, prominent developers began transforming this single-family subdivision into a premiere neighborhood of garden homes and townhouses. Large, upscale homes were built on zero lot lines to provide for less outside maintenance and larger square footage within. There are currently in excess of 830 residences, and development is progressing steadily.

Commercial enterprises and billboards are not allowed in Westhaven Estates, but full-service shopping centers featuring high-quality food markets, restaurants, pharmacies, coffee bars, bakeries, and health clubs thrive on the edge of this quiet, secluded neighborhood. The diversity of retail establishments, entertainment venues, and business complexes in the adjoining Uptown District provide a contrasting lively, urban atmosphere.

In addition to the nearby indoor activities, Westhaven residents have immediate access to some of Houston’s most inviting open spaces for relaxation and exercise including Transco Park, Lake on Post Oak, and Memorial Park. These pleasant oases offer wide green park areas, fountains, walking and jogging trails, golf courses, tennis courts, and lush natural forest in the heart of the city.

The highly rated Briargrove Elementary School serves Westhaven Estates, along with Grady Middle School and Lee High School.

Residents enjoy easy, quick connections to major freeways including I-610 (West Loop) and US 59 (Southwest Freeway). In addition, Westhaven Estates is convenient to some of Houston’s most important arterials, such as Westheimer Road and Woodway/Memorial Drive.

Long-time Houstonians and newcomers alike are attracted to the close-in location of this subdivision. From quaint garden homes to extensive luxury properties with every amenity, there is something for everyone in Westhaven Estates.
