"Small Community, Affordable Homes and Apartments"

Looking for a small, affordable community to get away from the busy city life? When I traveled through this area on my way to Dallas (sure, it was a detour), I felt like I had pulled a Henry David Thoreau and gone Walden on everyone. Hunterwood is very small and secluded. Homes in the small neighborhood are cheap for Houston standards and the opportunity for development in the area provides you with a great opportunity to increase the resale value of your home in the next 20 years. Quiet and backed up to nice stretch of woods to the east, opportunities for adventure in children are in high supply. This area seems perfect for the outdoorsmen of the city. The area is open, with plenty of room to roam free. All of its housing is situated off of County Rd 526. It's the only road in and out of the neighborhood, which can prove to be detrimental time-wise to a hectic schedule. Also, in order to do any shopping or find entertainment, you have to drive quite a ways (there's a Wal-Mart about 15-20 minutes east). With all the driving you'll have to do if you live in this area, it is nice to know that the neighborhood has a plethora of auto shops, tire shops and car service stations. It actually seems like too many. But, there must be a demand. There are bait shops and fishing accessory stores with every auto shop as well, which is nice for those that like to take trips north to Sheldon Reservoir and State Park. And on weekends, Texaco Country Club offers great golf opportunities.
