Rice Military/Washington Corridor
Four words sum up the major appeal of Rice Military: Washington Avenue. Green space.
That’s right, here you have the best of both worlds—firmly in the heart of inner-loop Houston. Sandwiched between downtown Houston and Memorial Park just south of I-10 and the Houston Heights, Rice Military puts you at the epicenter of all the urban excitement and within walking distance to two of Houston’s most sprawling green spaces where you can escape from it all. First, there’s Memorial Park. At 1,466 acres, Memorial Park is not only Houston’s largest park but it’s one of the largest urban parks in the entire U.S. It boasts more than 30 miles of multi-use trails, a public golf course, pools, playgrounds, tennis courts, croquet courts, indoor fitness facilities, and picnic areas. Or if you want a fantastic city skyline view to accompany your time outdoors, there’s Buffalo Bayou Park. At 160 acres, this recently revitalized beauty gives you a dog park, skate park, sand volleyball courts, and trails that run directly into downtown.
Traversing through the neighborhood is one of Houston’s most famous and most-visited stretches of pavement.
Yes, that’s Washington Avenue—home to some of Houston’s highest-rated restaurants featuring diverse cuisine and the area’s trendiest bars and clubs, plus shops and many nearby art galleries and music venues. From the casual to the upscale, there’s something for everyone and always something new to try. Although Washington Avenue might steal the spotlight for entertainment options, don’t forget about Memorial Drive, which runs along the neighborhood’s southern boundary.
Rice Military is a small, densely populated area. As a result, residents typically live vertical. Most home options are single-family patio homes or townhomes, the majority of which are recent or new construction—some in gated communities. Homes are available in a variety of architectural styles and usually have small or no yards—but might have a rooftop terrace.
Rice Military is one of the few inner-loop neighborhoods with plenty of real estate in the $300,000 to $400,000 range, which makes it appealing to young professionals and first-time buyers. Those with larger budgets and seeking increased square footage won’t be disappointed either—there are also plenty of luxurious listings approaching $1 million.
As an added bonus, you can be among the lucky Houstonians who enjoy a short commute if you live here. On average, residents spend less than 20 minutes in the car getting to work. And you can even be neighbors with the Beer Can House, one of Houston’s more quirky tourist attractions.
