The Braeswood Super Neighborhood, located inside Loop 610, is made up of around 2,200 homes across its seven subdivisions developed during the 1940s and 1950s. Braeswood features tree-lined street with a broad range of properties ranging from original and extensively renovated brick and stone ranch-style homes, to several large new-construction houses and apartment complexes. Property values in the community are protected by the Braeswood Place Homeowners Association. The neighborhood has a quiet small-town feel, but is conveniently located near major Houston districts – Rice Village, the Texas Medical Center and Downtown. The community is served by a variety of parks and outdoor entertainment areas including McGovern Park, Karl Young Park, the Stella Link Park Community Service Corridor, and the Brays Bayou Hike and Bike Trail. Hermann Park is also a short drive away. This neighborhood provides residents and visitors with a lot of dining, shopping and entertainment choices including Braes Heights Shopping Center and several new upscale retail shopping centers, and supermarkets.
