The Greater Heights area in Houston used to be an amalgam of warehouses and small neighborhoods that dotted the northwest corner of downtown. Originally it went from, Washington Avenue north to interstate 10. The south end of the heights was bordered by downtown Houston itself. There are a section of streets that lead to the Montrose, Memorial split. In the late 1990's, homes were priced at around forty thousand dollars. In today's market, that price would be maybe one hundred thousand dollars. That one hundred thousand dollar valuation would have been pre-renovation. Now, after the block wide renovations, these homes start in the two hundred and fifty thousand dollar range. Only the original inhabitants that were able to afford renovations could afford to stay. Their property had become worth more than the homes that were on them. Many sold to escape the urban areas for more rural areas. Those that invested in their homes and stayed, now live in a wonderfully, beautiful diverse neighborhood. The homes were arts and crafts homes. By design, these homes could be updated and renovated for not much more than painting and landscaping. The color schemes of the neighborhoods are subject to approval from newly formed neighborhood associations, and they are mandating vibrant arts and crafts schemes that are reminiscent of the homes in San Francisco. The homes have wonderful appliques and carved cornices. Some have oil lamps in the front yards, and most streets have walking corridors instead of medians. These corridors are also lit by Victorian style oil lamppost and have intermittent wrought iron setting benches. The homes have picket fences with a sidewalk that runs the distance of the neighborhood, in front of them. Some homes have beautiful climbing rose, and wisteria covered arbors above their gates. It is really beautiful at night and in the springtime. The great Mexican food restaurants remain, as well as, the great old time general feed stores. These stores are really now neighborhood hardware stores that have kept hard to find and colloquial items. They also still carry some animal feed. We buy used wine and whiskey barrels from them. The neighborhood paint stores remain. They had become faux finishing hubs, but after that craze died, they returned to common goods. I have lived in the Greater Houston Heights neighborhood for twenty years and I see no reason to move.
