The Woodlands

The Woodlands offers an idyllic setting outside of Houston’s fast-paced bustle.

Welcome to The Woodlands

A family-focused oasis in a vibrant planned community.
Perfect for family life, the master-planned community of The Woodlands offers an idyllic setting outside of Houston’s fast-paced bustle. With a go-big-or-go-home attitude toward architecture, and Texas-sized properties to match, The Woodlands offers a sprawling oasis of lush lawns and spacious residences, with Southern coastal designs, Mediterranean, and classic ranch house styles dominating the market.
The masterfully planned development of The Woodlands was created by a famous Texan oilman, George Mitchell, who initially bought 2,800 acres. Now spanning about ten times that amount, The Woodlands has grown into a thriving, coveted neighborhood. Once thought of as nothing but the remote countryside, this vibrant enclave retains a sense of tranquility with its secluded forests and leafy, tree-lined streets. The aptly named community offers a retreat to its residents, as well as a wide selection of tony amenities and pastimes.
