Afton Oaks subdivision is a welcoming oasis of oak tree canopies, wide smoothly resurfaced streets with antique-style street lamps, and sloping green lawns. Even in the grip of a Houston summer, the temperature seems to drop a few degrees within its borders – despite the fact that Afton Oaks is enviably located within Houston’s prestigious inner-Loop.
This heavily deed-restricted neighborhood offers an impressive selection of updated vintage and recently constructed homes on approximately 500 home sites. The Afton Oaks is dominated by 1950s one-story homes, a great many of which have been expanded and superbly updated. Recent years have seen an increase in the construction of luxurious two- to three-story homes, some in gated enclaves.
The subdivision’s original structures sell in a range from the high $300,000s to close to $800,000 for those with substantial updating or on very large lots. Recent and new- construction homes sell for well over $1 million and range to $3 million.
With proximity to downtown and the Galleria, plus the availability of excellent public and private schools, Afton Oaks attracts a wide demographic of residents. Young families, older original residents, professionals with no children, and emptynesters – all are welcome.
