Why Do People Live Here?

Rivercrest Estates, one of Houston's premier neighborhoods, is unlike any other in Houston. Rich in history, walking through Rivercrest is like experiencing Texas back in the days when wild life including rabbits and peacocks still abound.  It is also common to find authentic buggies and horses on properties.  Rivercrest Estates Homeowners Association deed restrictions allow horses and many residents to continue with this tradition.  Located by Briar Forest Road, west of Gessner, and stretching from Westheimer on the south to Buffalo Bayou on the north to the eastern boundary of Briargrove Park on the west, Rivercrest is only 10 minutes to the Galleria with quick access to 59, Beltway 8, and Westpark Tollway.  Established in 1945, Rivercrest is shielded from the hustle and bustle of Houston's busy city life.  Residents enjoy the privacy Rivercrest still offers with streets lined with pines and oaks, and homes are set back from the street at least 100 feet and side set backs are at least 15 feet..
