"Quiet Street at the Heart of Braeburn Within Walking Distance to HBU and Memorial Hermann"
To the north, Wateka Dr. dead ends at Toulon, which is right in the backyard of both Memorial Hemann Southwest Hospital and Houston Baptist University. With this kind of medical and education access, Wateka is a great place for a family. The road is long and has many trees that bloom to fill the whole street. The houses are a pleasant mix of large homes and small ranch-style homes, perfect for most budgets. The homes sit on large plots of land and could be a bear to maintain, but the people living here have done an honorable job doing so. But, having a large yard also means there is plenty of room for kids to roam, explore and have fun. The area is quiet, save for the rare helicopter that flies overhead enroute to the hospital. There is very little traffic, as Wateka is on the right side of Beechnut, and does not meet up with it directly. On the south, though, Wateka meets with Bissonnet, which can be busy from time to time. One thing that I did not find so desirable about little Wateka were the powerlines that line the street, right in front of the trees. They are unsightly, and could turn out to be a safety hazard to curious children. Also, the yards are large enough to make it difficult to get to know your neighbors; though, this could be negated by the personality of the street and its seclusion from busy streets. Overall, I was charmed by this little street and recommend it for someone looking for a little peace and quiet.
