"Pleasant stretch close to Houston's best"

Just off Westheimer at the southern edge of Afton Oaks/River Oaks, Bryn Mawr lane offers close proximity to some of Houston's best sights, nightlife, events, entertainment and living options, while still preserving peace and quiet at all costs. This street is made up mostly of ranch-style homes with thick tree cover. The cost of living here is considerably less than most places in this area, yet you can still enjoy the amenities of the other subdivisions. Timely care of all power, water and gas issues that may occur is certain, and there is a certain amount of attention paid to all public land (mowing, caretaking, general upkeep), The houses are close to each other and create a friendly neighbor spirit. There are many private schools in the area that provide superior education to all ages, including many colleges and universities. But, the public school system still feeds to HISD, which has been known for its low standards. The nicest part of this stretch is its location. It is very close to 610, which allows access to the Galleria and all the restaurants and shopping in that area. It is also close to downtown and can provide nightly entertainment if you so choose. This area also houses so of the most revered coffee shops and restaurants that are not chains. Agora and Empire Cafe are a short drive from the street, as well as the River Oaks Shopping Center. There are many great driving locations, as well as walking locations and parks near by, that offer a pleasant escape from the home every once in a while.
