Private, prestigious, and just short of aristocratic: Royal Oaks lives up to its noble name. Large wrought iron gates emblazoned with a golden “R” beckon you to home and country club.
There’s a large masonry wall surrounding the perimeter and 24-hour manned security gate for visitors as well as an automatic entrance (presumably for residents). Traveling up the high street, you’ll find it lined with trees and some of the more modest homes—though nothing here is particularly modest. A bridge at the top of the hill and a stop sign give you time to take it all in: the quiet, picturesque streets, the grand, august country club, impeccably manicured horticulture, and more gates to kingdoms unknown…
The Royal Oaks Country Club is the first country club built in the Houston City Limits in the last 50 years. Located at the end of the high street, it serves as the central location for the Royal Oaks community, and features an 18-hole golf course, spa, fitness area, tennis courts, aquatics center with an outdoor pool, kids’ water play area and gourmet food.
You certainly could run into a blue blood here: homes are priced from the more modest $400k to over $3 million, though home sites are available from the $100s. About half of the houses in Royal Oaks community (an expanse of 490 acres) have views of the gorgeous Fred Couples Signature Golf Course. To maintain quality, tasteful homes equally contribute to the beautification of each sub-neighborhood and the community as a whole. There are over 850 single-family & semi-custom homes designed by one of 7 approved community architects.
Royal Oaks boasts beautiful scenery and quality fringe benefits, especially safety and prestige. Though the price tag is high, the community itself is beautifully maintained, high-end and family-oriented… and maybe perfect for you!
