Those who buy in Champion Forest often stay
Many original owners remain in Champion Forest subdivision
RE/MAX Northwest agent Donna Burke likes to joke that Spring’s Champion Forest subdivision feels “just like Beaver Cleaver’s neighborhood.”
Of all the places in Houston where Burke has lived, she said, Champion Forest is still her favorite subdivision.
She said its mature trees, high quality schools and low tax rates are only a few of the perks that residents enjoy.
While construction of Champion Forest began in the late 1970s, new homes have continued to be built, with a few empty lots still for sale.
French country-style designs are typical in the area, with some English-style homes sprinkled around as well.
Burke is listing a two-story, five-bedroom house at 9623 Fenchurch Drive for $575,000.
The 4,994-squarefoot home was built in 1981 and is just blocks from the Raveneaux Country Club and a mile from the Tomball Freeway.
Burke said many of the homes in the subdivision are still occupied by the original owners and that many residents have moved up to larger homes over the years.
“Considering how big it is, we haven’t seen an abundance of foreclosures there, and it’s not unusual to see younger people that grew up in Champion Forest to turn around and buy a home there once they start having kids themselves,” she said.
