"Nice neighborhood close to the heart of Houston's best"
I have a friend that lived on Carew. I visited a few times and was always surprised by how quiet the area was in relation to how close it was to major streets. It's located near the intersection of Beechnut and Chimney Rock, two of Houston's busiest streets... that aren't Westheimer. And because, it is just off the main roads, there is little to no traffic every day of the week. It's green with plenty of trees and the lawns are well-kept. Neighbors were always very friendly when I parked in front of their house, always giving me a wave and saying hello. Kids here are zoned for the Bellaire School District, which is high on academics and sports. There is a park not far south from this street and Hermann park is not 15 minutes from your house. Rice University, one of the nation's top private schools (often referred to as the 'Ivy League of the South'), is close by as well, providing many opportunities for entertainment and education. This is in addition to the Galleria, one of the largest malls in America, which is a short car ride up 610. And speaking of 610... it is a gateway to many of Houston's best attractions. 610 South will take you towards Downtown and you will pass many great restaurants on the way. All in all, I love this part of town because of it's access to so many other parts of town, coupled with it's quiet streets and docile nature. It's a nice escape from the hustle-bustle of big city life.
