"Eclectic Array of Houses, Quiet Street Just Inside Loop"
It's funny wanting to live somewhere other than where you live already. The grass is always greener, as they say. But here, the grass is greener and I would like to graze. The houses on this street are quite varied, but unlike many older neighborhoods that are tearing down older homes in favor of new palatial estates, this one has nice homes lining the entire street. There are ranch homes, smaller two-story homes and an interesting mix of larger two-story homes. But, it doesn't seem odd. Everything seems in its place, right where it is supposed to be. Many people look for a particular style of home, but this street provides potential home buyers with variety, and with variety comes diversity. Drummond St. stretches from the east to the west side of Braeswood Place, intersecting with Stella Link Rd. towards the west side. Right off of Stella Link is Young Park, a great place for recreation and family activities. Also, just to the south is the Stella Link Shopping Center and 610, so entertainment and shopping are never far away. And a short drive east on 610 will take you to Reliant Arena and the Medical Center. Houston has changed quite a bit since I first moved here in 1995, but with each change I notice, I notice the change to be in favor of diversity. Drummond St. is the perfect reflection of that change in mindset. And with it being so close to the loop and many downtown destinations, you can experience this change first-hand.
