Tanglewood is one of Houston’s most exclusive and desirable neighborhoods with a charming architectural mix of spacious updated California Ranch homes and magnificent recently-built Traditional, Mediterranean and Contemporary-style residences. This initial property was located in the area that is now between San Felipe and Woodway and between Sage and Chimney Rock.
Section 1 of Tanglewood, with its entrance from Post Oak Lane, consisted of 32 lots. Since most of the land was open prairie, each home site was planted with two large oak trees plus three oaks added on every corner. As a result, Tanglewood is now one of Houston’s most beautiful wooded areas.
Tanglewood’s deed restrictions were rigidly enforced by the Tanglewood Homes Association. These included front and side line setbacks for every home. Prior to any construction, plans had to be approved by an architectural control committee.
There were 15 sections of Tanglewood developed from 1949 to 1959. Today, the completed subdivision consists of 1,052 homes in these 15 sections. Prices for building sites, with and without existing homes, approach and exceed $1 million; recently built homes range well into the multi-millions.
