Welcome to Old Braeswood
Old Braeswood is a neighborhood of single family homes in Houston,Texas. It is generally bounded by South Main, N. Braeswood, Kirby Drive, and Holcombe Blvd. The Texas Medical Center, Rice University, the Village, and the NRG Center complex are all within a one-mile radius.
The Braeswood Civic Club was first established in 1939 to enforce the deed restrictions for the Braeswood Addition as well as to improve and beautify the area for the enjoyment of area residents. In 1982, “Old Braeswood” was registered as a trademark and logo to differentiate our residential neighborhood from the surrounding areas along Braes Bayou, which had become known as “Braeswood”. In 2004, the neighborhood adopted the name Old Braeswood POA.
Old Braeswood is a unique residential neighborhood characterized by large lots and sweeping lawns, huge trees, and a distinct architectural diversity that ranges from stately Tudor homes to architecturally significant Ranches.
Old Braeswood POA has been active during recent years in efforts to preserve the unique character of the neighborhood. For this reason, Old Braeswood POA discourages the subdividing of large, multi-lot properties into component lots that results in a dense concentration of construction with only minimum free space. Area development that retains the integrity of the neighborhood will always be encouraged.
