Al Hartman on the Rice Military Area
This part is also known as the Memorial Park neighborhood. Anyone who wants to live in the Inner Loop hopes to find a property here. It is named after the Rice family, and particularly William Marsh Rice, who founded Rice University. The Rice family wasn’t a military family, however. That part of the area’s name comes from its proximity to Camp Logan. During WWI, the area was used as a soldiers’ training camp.
Memorial Park is also contained within this area, which is a 1,600 acre park. In 1910, the Bankers Trust Company purchased the land. They turned it into a blossoming and fascinating residential area, and it remains as such today.
There are many other neighborhoods that surround Rice Military. To the south is Memorial Drive and to the north is Washington Avenue. Shepherd Drive is on the east, and Westcott Street on the west. The neighborhood itself, meanwhile, is upper middle class. It has a vivacious, delightful atmosphere and is close enough to Downtown Houston’s vibrant nightlife to benefit from it. Properties types includes single family homes, condominiums, townhouses, and more. Rice Military is known for its spacious lot sizes and its focus on family living.
Homes in this neighborhood come with everything you need to live a happy, active, and healthy life. There are many opportunities for social and physical activities alike. Tennis courts, hiking trails, and swimming pools are all available. There are softball and volleyball teams, opportunities to go biking, and more. Plus, although it is an upper middle class neighborhood, you don’t have to be truly wealthy to live here.
The neighborhood is always in a state of growth and development, which means it looks and feels very modern, as well as being super trendy. Indeed, this is what attracts most people to the neighborhood above all else. You can expect a property to cost at least $200,000, which may be too steep for some people, but is certainly a lot less than you would pay for a similar property and similar living conditions in any other part of the country. The neighborhood also seems to get better and better all the time, with the community as a whole being focused on turning it into a little piece of paradise.
