Timbergrove is a neighborhood located just to the west of the Houston Heights and Shady Acres. The neighborhood’s name stems from the plethora of pine trees in the area. The wealth of trees in the neighborhood give it a distinct wooded feel that is quite appealing. Developed in the early 1950s, after World War II, Timbergrove consists almost exclusively of postwar ranch style homes. Because of this, the neighborhood has a uniform, planned appearance that is very inviting. While many centrally located Houston neighborhoods are seeing their old houses replaced, Timbergrove’s postwar homes have remained largely intact. This architectural cohesion, combined with its central location, large lots, wooded appeal, has made Timbergrove an exceedingly popular place to live.
