Thank you Timbergrove
Things have been very busy at the house…lots of progress! And I will add a few posts on the latest developments, but before I do that, I need to take a moment to thank the neighbors of my Timbergrove project! It has been such a great experience to renovate this house, and a good part of the satisfaction is to see the many many neighbors stopping by, wanting to see the house, and being so very nice! Whoever buys this house will for sure have a lot of wonderful neighbors!
As part of my research when I jumped on this project, I did a general area assessment. I will go ahead and put a few things I learned about Timbergrove Manor for those who are not familiar with the area.
Location: Timebergrove is located inside the loop , just west of the Historic Houston Heights. It’s within a few miles of downtown, the Galleria and Memorial Park. The Shelterwood project is located across the street from a biking and jogging trail, and from a great little park that has been purchased by the community.
Access: Since this neighborhood is strategically placed on the edge of 610 and to I-10, it’s a commuter’s dream with easy access to multiple major streets, loop and highways! It’s within 10 minutes to downtown, the Galleria, 290, 15-20 mins to the Energy Corridor, West side of the Belt-8, 10 mins to the hardy toll road and 20 mins to the International airport IAH!
People: Timbergrove Manor has a great community of people and organizations to preserve the welfare of the area. Some of the organizations include the Civic Club, Timbergrove Manor Neighborhood Association, Friends of Jaycee Park and Friends of 11th street Park.
Restaurants / Entertainment: There are tons of good food and places to have fun around the area. You can enjoy great beer and burger at Cedar Creek Cafe, a great Italian dish at Cavatore, the historic log cabin with award winning food – the Rainbow Lodge, Mexican food at Tonys. Then you also have The Corkscrew , Golden Chinese Cafe, Gatlins BBQ, Pappa Geno’s and of course all of those great and fun spots on 19th street including one of my favorite pizza places: Collinas.
For entertainment, besides the eateries, I must include the Bingo on Beal and 15th . This is not the Bingo you are thinking of, stop by on a Thursday at around 6:30 and you will see what I am talking about. All night bingo for 5 bucks, cheap beer, homemade burgers, great crowd and great fun! And again I will mention the parks and bike trails that cut through the Heights all the way to Downtown.
Shopping: There are 2 groceries nearby HEB and Kroger ( the largest Kroger in the city) , There are several boutiques and other eclectic merchandise stores on 19th street. I must not forget that it has been so very handy in this remodeling to have a Home Depot and a Lowes 5 minutes away! We also have a great Nursery near Home Depot!
So this is a little bit about Timbergrove Manor!
