Build your luxury dream home in West U today.
West University Place, or West U as it is commonly known, is a picturesque bedroom community offering a quiet, suburban lifestyle in close proximity to the city center. In fact, though it is incorporated as a city, West U is so close to Houston that the Postal Service accepts Houston as the city designation for all local addresses.
This has made West U a very attractive location for luxury homebuilding projects, and, thanks to its affluent, well-educated residents, the city is often referred to as a “wealthy city within a city.” The area is home to a mixture of luxurious old homes and newer builds, though recent decades have seen many of the old residences undergo extensive renovations.
Home to some of the best schools - West U Elementary and Pin Oak Middle School - this part of town has a wide array of options for family fun. Weekley Family YMCA, McGovern-Stella Link Library, and the West University Place Recreation Center offer many activities for all ages. Shopping lovers can frequent Rice Village, with walkable streets and a wide array of food and drink options. Nearby Rice University puts on many shows and exhibitions year-round, just 5 minutes away.
West U holds a very special place in our firm's history. It's actually where our founder, Chris Sims, built his very first custom home in 1988. After observing a few homes being demolished and rebuilt in this historic Houston neighborhood, Chris became inspired by the potential to positively influence his beloved hometown's future landscape.
Today, we continue to work closely with homeowners in the area to turn their West U properties into custom, luxury dream homes. From new builds to custom renovations, our expert team is equipped to handle all your homebuilding projects:
