Shady Acres Homes For Sale-2011
Shady Acres is just West of Houston Heights. Thus it is just West of N Shepherd/Durham, and just inside the 610 N Loop.
There is no resemblance to the Heights however. The Heights has a lot of nicely maintained 1920’s-1930’s bungalows and Victorian homes. It also has a good mix of free-standing new construction homes.
Shady Acres has a lot of 1940’s homes that are maintained in a wide variety of conditions. There is no push for renovations here because most of the homes aren’t architecturally desirable…they are just “okay”. For this reason when older homes come on the market, they are typically being sold for land value. So, what’s for sale are land-value properties and lots of new or recent construction homes.
