Memorial Close-In


Nestled between the 610 Loop to the west and the Memorial Villages to the east, Memorial Close-In is a wooded enclave of outstanding luxury homes. Spacious plots lie along streets strewn with towering mature pine trees.

The opulent properties within this secluded district provide the perfect respite from the bustle of big-city Houston, while remaining within easy reach of all Houston’s most important commercial and business districts.

Situated within close proximity to the Buffalo Bayou, Memorial Close-In is comprised of Bayou Woods, Longwood, Pinewood Estates, Saddlebrook, and Sherwood Forest sub-divisions, as well as the exclusive Stablewood gated community.


The quiet streets of Memorial Close-In are home to some of Houston’s most breath-taking luxury residences. The spacious lots here allow for the construction of truly extravagant custom-built dream homes, with designs ranging from the exquisitely classical to the stunningly contemporary.

Mediterranean, Georgian, and English-style manors and villas can be found throughout Memorial Close-In, along with beautiful modern designs from renowned contemporary architects such as Lauren Rottet.

These homes boast expansive grounds and spacious interiors, with some properties extending beyond 10,000 square foot in size.


The thick pine tree cover within Memorial Close-In’s densely wooded subdivisions make this one of Houston’s most serene communities. Despite the tranquil atmosphere, the many attractions of Galleria and Downtown Houston are just a short drive away.

Located beside the better-known upscale neighborhoods of the Memorial Villages, Memorial Close-In is considered by many to be Houston’s best-kept secret.

This quiet neighborhood is perfectly positioned for accessing the best of the big city and the countryside. The Energy Corridor, Downtown, and Galleria are all a short drive away, while the homes here are surrounded by the dense forestry that straddles the Buffalo Bayou.

The six-mile Terry Hershey County Park is also located nearby. Named for noted local conservationist Terry Hershey, this expansive park offers fantastic open green spaces and numerous bike and walking paths. Bendwood and Nottingham Parks are also located a short distance from Memorial Close-In’s homes.
