You've heard the old saying that "the three most important things in real estate are location, location, location."  Lynn Zarr, Jr. and the developers of Edison Park, a gated community of 42 freestanding garden homes, could not agree more. 

Exclusively marketed by Zarr and Heritage Texas Properties, and developed by Silver Key Homes, Edison Park is located just blocks away from Uptown, nestled between some of the city’s most well-kept neighborhoods, where the emphasis has been on large family homes on sprawling lots. Until Edison Park, there has been little availability for busy professionals and empty nesters who wish to share in their proximity to Uptown Houston and the Galleria on a smaller, more affordable scale. 

“That’s what makes these high-end homes so special,” says Zarr. “Priced between the high $500s and the mid-$600s, they provide great value for the money – amenity-rich, quality high-end properties in a fabulous location just minutes from Loop 610 and Southwest Freeway and zoned to Bellaire High School – a popular area that is emerging as the newest frontier for development and redevelopment.”

Houston’s vigorous rebounding economy, coupled with an increasing population of busy young professionals and a maturing generation of baby-boomers, has changed the way people think about purchasing a home.  There is a growing demand for more than just a place to live – people want “lifestyle.” Long commutes have been replaced by the desire for easy access to cultural events and urban activities. 

Even so, many possess a deep-rooted Texas need to own “dirt,” particularly those with children or pets requiring private outdoor space, and Edison Park fills that niche perfectly. Besides the fact that each home will have its own landscaped yard with a variety of terraces and patios, an added plus is the developer’s plans for a spacious park-like green space complete with an arbor, play areas and walking trails, all within its gated community.  The first phase includes six garden homes, three of which are complete, with another three ready by late summer. Another eight are due to break ground by June. 

The lure of these new construction homes lies not only in their location and affordability, but also with the quality design choices offered. Designed by famed architects, Preston Wood & Associates, they offer unique architectural styles with a choice of floorplans that are stylish and sophisticated, with unmatched craftsmanship. The homes are a handsome mix of stucco and stone exteriors, some with rooftop terraces that offer breathtaking views of the Uptown skyline. Standard interior elements will include hardwood floors, granite kitchens with stainless steel Bosch appliances, fireplaces, high ceilings, spacious master suites with luxurious baths, and many more amenities to create the ultimate in luxury living spaces.  

 “All units have three bedrooms, a study, and three and one-half baths, ranging in size from approximately 2,500 to 3,000 square feet, with attached two-car garages” said Zarr. Still, the greatest attraction of Edison Park is the luxury lifestyle it offers in a location convenient to everything you want and need. As Lynn Zarr, Jr. points out, “This area is near the center of everything. And, it’s a mere stone’s throw from where I played Little League baseball as a boy. I’m so happy to see such upscale quality development in an area so dear to my heart. This makes my association with Silver Key Homes and Edison Park all the more special.”
