Southampton

Bordering Rice University, the Texas Medical Center, the Museum District, and Hermann Park, Southampton is an outstanding neighborhood, perhaps best known for its handsome, oak-lined boulevards, traditional style homes, and its strong sense of community.

Houston developer E. H. Fleming planned the residential and business community of Southampton in 1922, using about 160 acres of land he purchased from Nellie B. League of Galveston. In order to preserve the residential environment, a strong set of deed restrictions was written in 1923. A civic club was formed in 1929 to enforce the deed restrictions, and the club remains active today.

The original homes in Southampton were two-story, traditional residences built on wooded lots. To enhance the beauty of the tree lined streets, driveway access to each home was hidden. Service alleys allowed for a rear entrance giving Southampton a unique and attractive appearance. Southampton’s picturesque boulevards and prime location have provided a strong basis for property values.

Through the years, the neighborhood integrity has been maintained both in home restoration and new construction. With a strong interest and desire for “Inner Loop” housing, Southampton is a popular draw. Today, newly built Georgian brick homes as well as soft contemporary residences sprinkle its historic avenues.

Southampton continues to attract many business executives, medical and other professionals who are drawn to its charm, educational facilities, shady streets, close-in location, and proximity to numerous cultural activities offered in the museum and downtown areas.
