Crestwood - Glen Cove

Crestwood - Glen Cove is an established, heavily deed restricted residential neighborhood renowned for its magnificent trees, large lots, and long time residents. Many of Crestwood – Glen Cove’s original homes dating from the 1940s and 50s are being replaced by magnificent multi-million-dollar-plus structures that take maximum advantage of the neighborhood’s excellent inner-Loop location and expansive building sites. Lot prices begin near $500,000 and completed home prices range into the $4 millions. Old and new residents alike regard living in Crestwood – Glen Cove as a privilege. They love their large lots, big trees, and the wild life and open space of Memorial Park.

Beautiful and historic Memorial Park borders Crestwood – Glen Cove on the west. The property was acquired in 1923 by the City of Houston from the Hogg brothers who planned to develop the 1,500 acres as home sites. The Hoggs’ property included most of old Camp Logan, an army camp created in 1917 as a training facility and later used as a military hospital. When the Hoggs switched their focus to property south of Buffalo Bayou next to the new River Oaks Country Club, they sold their original tract to the city at their cost. Dedicated to the fallen of World War I, Memorial Park today is Houston’s crown jewel, one of the nation’s largest parks and a pastoral oasis in the center of the country’s fourth largest city.
