Nestled alongside the Texas Medical Center, Rice University, Buffalo Bayou and Hermann Park, Southgate offers the perfect mix of residential tranquility and urban accessibility.
Southgate is a deed-restricted community overseen by the Southgate Civic Club. Divided into four sections, the area is primarily restricted to single-family homes of brick, stone and masonry design with some multi-family buildings permitted on and below Southgate Boulevard. Of the nearly 600 homes in the area, most are beautifully maintained single- and two-story residences constructed in the 1930s and 1940s. Due to strict enforcement of deed restrictions, the neighborhood retains an attractive cohesiveness, and residents rave about the close-knit sense of community.
One of Southgate's strongest attributes is its fantastic location. Strategic traffic controls keep local streets quiet while residents enjoy the offerings and employment opportunities at the adjacent medical center and university. Massive Hermann Park offers a wealth of recreation and outdoor entertainment, including the Houston Zoo and Hermann Park Golf Course. Just beyond the park, Houston's Museum District provides outstanding institutions for exploring science, history and fine arts.
Nearby Rice Village delivers dozens of local shops, major retail destinations and dining venues. On Tuesday afternoons, the Rice University Farmers Market welcomes an array of local produce, grass-fed beef, baked goods and artisanal products. Sports and concert fans will enjoy direct access to Rice Stadium minutes away and NRG Stadium just two miles south. Southgate is zoned for Houston ISD schools, including top-rated Roberts Elementary School. With the METRORail red line and all major freeways nearby, this Inner Loop neighborhood provides easy access to the rest of the city.
