The neighborhood's throwback vibe.
“Charming” is a word that comes up a lot in descriptions of the GOOF. Maintaining it’s old neighborhood’s roots with large yards for an inner Houston area has not gone unnoticed. It’s not uncommon to see families out for an evening stroll or children playing with their friends in the front yards.
Ample lots for an inner Houston neighborhood.
While many of the area’s original one-story traditional homes, developed in the late 1940’s are still the same from the exterior, many of the interior designs have been either gutted or completely renovated to fit today's residents lifestyles. In 2000 builders began redeveloping the area, building larger more accomodating homes to meet the demands of the residents moving out of the inner loop but wanting to stay close in.
