Tanglewood Custom Homes | Luxury Homebuilders | Sims Luxury Builders


Build your home in Tanglewood to discover the hidden gem of Greater Houston luxury.

Leafy, treed, and covered with spacious, luxurious residential lots, Tanglewood is increasingly recognized as one of the best areas of Houston for luxury living. The neighborhood’s large lots used to be populated primarily with modest ranch homes, but recent decades have seen a massive increase in luxury home construction.

Affluent residents, no doubt attracted by the oak trees, lush walking trails, parks and lot sizes of the neighborhood, began building large, two-story homes in the 1980s and this trend has continued to the current day. With Downtown Houston located only a few miles east of the neighborhood, it’s not hard to see why. Tanglewood offers pleasant suburban living right next to the amenities of the city.

Outdoor enthusiasts can join the Tanglewood Garden Club, who plant the trees that give this neighborhood it’s charm. Close by are acres full of trails at the Houston Arboretum and Nature Center. Those with children can enjoy education close to home, with the Kinkaid School and Tanglewood Academy. Sports players can enjoy tennis and running at Tanglewood Park, as well as fine dining at nearby Del Frisco’s and Morton’s.

Late President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara were long-time homeowners in Tanglewood, and Sims Luxury Builders makes it easy for Houstonians attracted to the neighborhood to follow in their footsteps.


From upscale two-story English-style brick and stone homes to sprawling Mediterranean-style stucco houses, our experienced team help maximize the usage of your lot and design luxury custom homes.

Why Sims?

Building the luxury home you’ve always dreamed of should be a dream

When you decide to build your own custom home, you’re doing something exceptional. It’s a serious investment and a multi-faceted, complex project. When you take the road less traveled by building custom, you need an experienced and dedicated guide. Sims Luxury Builders have walked this path many times before. When you hire us, you get so much more than a builder:

  • Support and advice from a multidisciplinary team of seasoned professionals
  • A collaborative process which respects the vision of the architect and the homeowner
  • A commitment to your dream, your needs, your budget and your schedule
  • Dedicated project manager and construction manager to liaise with all involved parties
  • Access to the best value in high end materials and labor
  • Expert troubleshooting to eliminate any stressful surprises along the way



  • A beautiful community featuring awe-inspiring homes, large lots and live oaks, Tanglewood is just a short drive away from the Galleria and Uptown areas. The neighborhood, located just outside the 610 Loop and inside Beltway 8, was developed beginning in the 1930s by William Giddings Farrington. Through the Tanglewood Garden Club’s beautification efforts and the strict enforcement of architectural controls, Tanglewood quickly became one of Houston’s most desirable residential communities.
