  3. http://search.har.com/engine/indexdetail.c...mp;backButton=Y This house was designed by J. Stonehill of New York, and has been on the market for a little while. I'm not familiar with his work but this is a pretty neat and not so big modern house in one of the coolest hidden parts of Houston. I have a good friend that lives down the street backing up to the bayou and being in the backyard you don't even feel like you are in the middle of the city. Apparently the seller is proud of this, too, being that most properties in Houston at this price are at least twice the size. I'd take the smalle
  4. I couldn't help but to have always noticed this street shares its name with a certain prominent National Lampoon actor. :closedeyes:
  5. Hello! I am moving to Houston from Europe (Romania) because of my business and I would like to know if the River Oaks community is a good place to by house? The main criteria are: safety, nice environment (green, parks...), close to the city center. Another option could be The Woodlands, but I know that is far from the city (about 50' from downtown). Thank you!
  6. If you haven't done so yet, and you care about these great Houston Landmarks, go here to sign an online petition to try to save them. It would be a shame to see 2 of the last art deco style theaters torn down. Thanks! Jason http://www.ipetitions.com/petition/riveroaks/
  7. I've heard a nasty rumor that the River Oaks Theatre is getting torn down, and getting replaced with a parking lot. Someone PLEASE tell me that this is not true.

Derek Darnell, president of Pelican Builders, tells GlobeSt.com that 27 units have been
  9. I've been searching the web for a few hours, and found a nice community, River Oaks. It seems low in crime, and close to the inner loop. What do homes go for here? Well, I guess I'm going to keep searching.
  10. Well, I'm undercontract, again!! Does anyone know the real status of The Royalton (aka "3333 The View") conversion from apartments to condominiums? We've been under contract for 2 months now waiting for a closing date. Our first contract was at the Shamrock Towers. We refuse to the Galleria area to buy into a high-rise condo!
  11. River Oaks neighborhood group barks up new tree Allison Wollam Houston Business Journal River Oaks residents are hoping a proposal to tighten neighborhood deed restrictions will bear fruit after a construction boom has leveled many historic homes and trees in the ritzy neighborhood. River Oaks Property Owners Inc. is gearing up to amend the community's deed restrictions by requiring property owners to gain approval from the organization before undertaking any construction project that calls for the removal of trees. In order for the group to gain that authority, 75 percent of the property ow
  12. Did you know about 20 years ago Yasser Arafat son built an $30 million dollars home in river oaks. My dad and other crews helped him to move boxes in the new home. Arafat son had his on crew to help build the house 24-7. Neighbors was complaining about the noise at night while they work. Arafat's son bought out the complaining neighbors for $1 million dollars. This is why Houston is so international. Houston is ranked #1 in texas for the best international city, and #3 in america behind New York and L.A.
  13. By NANCY SARNOFF Copyright 2004 Houston Chronicle Prime land up for grabs A pair of prime parcels of inner-city real estate is about to change hands for the first time in decades.
