Acres Homes Real Estate and Homes for Sale

Lately, there's been more interest in the historic neighborhood as developers have bought land, or are planning to, in anticipation of the inevitable urban renewal. Acres Homes is home to many shotgun houses and in areas affected by gentrification, historic preservation efforts have led to the renovation of such houses. These antiquated homes feature one-bathroom. Other older homes in the community are traditional, clad in brick and siding. Homes for sale in new gated developments such as La Sierra are mainly two-story construction homes with the master bedroom on the first floor. Features include contemporary facades, open floor plans, backyards, and driveways. The home prices range from the low to the high six-figure range.

Acres Homes Lifestyle

Proximity to downtown and the vast amount of "affordable, heavily wooded land" makes the area attractive to buyers. Referred to as an "artists enclave", the neighborhood is popular with developers including hip-hop artist Slim Thug, local painters, and sculptors. A verdant greenbelt forms part of the community and residents can enjoy the parks and walking trails Acres Homes has to offer. One of the must-visit parks is Sylvester Turner Park, the home to the Houston Astros and Major League Baseball’s youth softball and baseball programs. The fields are fantastic and so is the great walking trail. Some of the best barbecue joints in the city are at the “44” as some residents affectionately call it, and also at the family-owned Burns BBQ.

Acres Homes Schools

Children of school age in Acres Homes have access to great educational opportunities the community has to offer. The Houston ISD serves the community with some of the top schools in the district. They include Highland Heights, Wesley and Osborne Elementary schools, and M.C Williams Middle School, and Booker T. Washington High School.
