Nestled between Westheimer and Westpark Tollway, this area provides residents with immediate access to freeways that take them directly to the westside of the inner loop. Beltway 8 is also just minutes away for a quick commute to I-10, Energy Corridor, and Hwy 290. Although the neighborhoods in Westchase are suburban, the surrounding area feels much like an extension of the inner loop with two million square feet of commercial space including international restaurants, a multitude of retail outlets, and even a Whole Foods.

While you can find upscale subdivisions, like Royal Oaks, in Westchase, you can also find older, more affordable townhomes in the area.

Briarmeadow neighbors Westchase to the east, which makes it even closer to the inner loop. Access to major roadways like the Westpark Tollway, Beltway 8, the 610 Loop, Westheimer Road and Richmond Avenue make it a high-traffic area with a lot of commercial activity including everything around the Galleria, further east of Briar Meadow. This area borders one of the most active pockets of Houston, yet residents are still able to enjoy a small town feel because of its older homes and tight-knit community. Deed restrictions and an architectural committee have safeguarded property values in Briar Meadow over the years. The neighborhood features a swimming pool and a clubhouse.
