"Short Street, but Large in Character"

Commonwealth is pretty short compared to most streets in Houston. It breaks off of Waugh at W Gray and ends at Westheimer, a little more than a mile away. Packed into that short amount of space are new townhomes, comfortable apartments, and older and newer homes. The area is very green with lots of trees and many yards have beautiful garden arrangements, displaying exotic flowers and interesting lawn art. This area is an extension of Montrose, so many different types of people live here and relationships between neighbors are cordial, if not friendly. It is also relatively quiet considering it's location. With major streets surrounding it, the area stays pretty quiet most nights and fear for safety is never a big topic around the family dinner table. While the roads branching off Commonwealth can be a little confusing at times, with many one-way streets and plenty of deadends, you'd be lucky to get lost in these little neighborhoods from time to time. And because it ends at Westheimer, you are never far from accessing any part of the city. Food, bars, entertainment and shopping is always around the corner, and a quick drive down W Gray will take you downtown or to River Oaks. I-10 is also very close (about 5 minutes), and 59 and I-45 are about 5 minutes away as well.
