Royden Oaks & Oak Estates

Neighboring communities Royden Oaks and Oak Estates each offer a stellar inner-Loop location convenient to everything; quiet winding streets lined with mature trees; and a pleasant mix of updated one-story and recently constructed two-story homes. Both subdivisions are close to but protected from the exciting bustle of Highland Village, one of Houston’s premier shopping and dining areas, and enjoy the prestige of being in the “River Oaks area.”

Legendary Houston real estate entrepreneur Frank Sharp developed Royden Oaks just west of River Oaks in the late 1940s. Oak Estates was developed at the same time by S. N. Adams just west of Willowick Road on the former grounds of a private sports club. Both neighborhoods are heavily deed restricted upscale residential enclaves.

Royden Oaks features approximately 200 home sites. Original structures, mostly one-story homes, sell in a range from the high $500,000s to more than $1 million for those with substantial updating. Recent and new-construction homes, usually two- to three-story structures, sell for well over $1 million and range to near $3 million.

Oak Estates has approximately 150 home sites. Original structures, mostly one-story homes, sell in a range from $600,000 to $900,000 for those with substantial updating. Recent and new-construction homes, usually two- to three-story structures, sell for well over $1 million and range to near $ 3 million.
