The subdivision of Shadowbriar, located in west Houston between Highway 6 and the Sam Houston Parkway, has just over 400 single-family properties. Traditional homes prove to be the most popular architectural style, but mixed in are a few contemporary and even Colonial homes.
Construction dates back to the 1980s, with 1982 the median year built. Square footage runs a median of 2,481, with spacious lots having a median square footage of 8,165, many with mature trees providing abundant shade. Typical of homes built in this time period, most in the neighborhood have an average of three bedroom with two bathrooms.
The Shadowbriar Community Association governs the subdivision, collecting annual assessment fees for administration, management, operation, and maintenance of common areas as well as of the swimming pool and tennis courts. The association takes part in a policing program contracted to Harris County Precinct 5 Constables, which provides 24-hour security patrols.
While just south of the Energy Corridor, Shadowbriar offers close enough proximity to make it a desirable subdivision for industry employees. It also provides a multitude of outdoor recreation opportunities at Terry Hershey Park and Buffalo Bayou to the north and George Bush Park to the west. Students are zoned for the Houston Independent School District.
Shopping, dining and entertainment opportunities are also plentiful in the corridor as well as just over the parkway at City Centre. Downtown is 17 miles to the east via Westpark Tollway or I-10.
