Guide To Gulfton Houston TX Real Estate

Gulfton is a community of single-family homes and townhome complexes in Southwest Houston, just outside the Inner Loop.

Gulfton is a largely residential neighborhood in Southwest Houston, just off the 610 Loop and beside the affluent Bellaire, one of Houston’s most popular neighborhoods.

Gulfton had a reputation for bad master-planning and development during the ’70s and ’80s mainly due to its enormous blocks of warehouse-style apartments. However, the neighborhood is on the rise due to its location, affordability, and recent commercial development in the area.

  • EXCELLENT LOCATION: Downtown Houston is about 10 miles away, while Westchase is about 6 miles west of Gulfton. The upscale retail shops of The Galleria are less than 3 miles north of the neighborhood, while the Meyerland Plaza is a few minutes south.

  • RECENT COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT: Gulfton features its own community center – the Baker-Ripley Neighborhood Center. Built in 2010, the center houses a gym, a community garden, an elementary school and a tax center.
  • GOOD COMMUTE TO INNER LOOP: The community features convenient access to main roads and thoroughfares including the 610 Loop, Beltway 8, and Westpark Tollway. It runs south of Interstate 69, east of Hillcroft Avenue, and north of Bissonnet Street.
  • AFFORDABILITY: Gulfton Houston is one of the more established neighborhoods in Houston having been around since the 1970s. Many of Gulfton homes for sale relatively cost less than homes in nearby communities inside the Inner Loop.
  • PROXIMITY TO OUTDOOR RECREATION: Gulfton residents are near Memorial Park, the largest urban park in the country. It is also near the hike and bike trails of Brays Bayou and the Sharpstown Country Club.
  • DIVERSE HOUSING OPTIONS: Gulfton offers single-family homes, townhomes, and condos. These range in style from beautiful vintage ranch-style and contemporary single-family homes to affordable townhomes.

Gulfton real estate can be challenging to navigate due to the number of older, under-developed properties in the area. Homebuyers can realty benefit from the assistance of a top Houston realtor familiar with the Gulfton real estate market.
