Build a Custom Home in Spring Valley Village

When the city of Spring Valley Village was incorporated in the mid-1950s, it passed a zoning ordinance that limited homes to one-story only. What resulted was the creation of an idyllic suburb with traditional ranches. While the ordinance was later amended to include two-story homes, many ranches remain and are still common in the area.

With these beautiful, original ranches, many of them updated, residents have built stunning one- and two-story custom homes, creating more diverse architecture that still meets the high standards of the community. 

Here’s why you’ll want a custom home of your own to be a part of the Spring Valley Village community, too.

6 Reasons to Build a Custom Home in Spring Valley Village

Streets with sprawling ranches and yards fill Spring Valley, making it a pleasant and picturesque location to build a custom home. The look and feel of this area aren’t the only reasons to build there. The city’s location, lots, and access to tons of amenities also add to its allure. 

1. Space to Build

If you’re looking for plenty of space to build on your lot in Houston, Spring Valley may give you that chance. Along with limiting the type of home built, past zoning ordinances also required lots to be no less than 10,000 square feet. Along with more space to build a large home, these lot sizes can give you a big, sprawling yard with additional amenities.

2. Safety

A suburb of Houston, Spring Valley has its own private police force and fire department that protect and patrol the area. Residents report feeling safe because of good police coverage and quick response times. The force’s presence doesn’t just make residents feel safe, it has a positive impact on the community as Spring Valley has a low crime rate and is typically known as a quiet area.

3. Family-Friendly Atmosphere

Ranked the #1 on Niche’s list of best places to raise a family in Harris County, Spring Valley has top-rated schools, movies in the parks, community festivals and parades, and a city park with and playground, gazebo, and various monuments that commemorate past residents or events.

4. Proximity to Downtown 

Spring Valley is about 15 minutes from downtown Houston, a hub for dining, entertainment, and culture. As the fourth most populous city in the U.S., the city of Houston has a busy downtown area where bars, restaurants, cafes, galleries, and skyscrapers abound. There’s always something going on downtown, from art exhibitions and walking tours to baseball games, concerts, and community fitness classes.



5. Rural Living in a Major Metro Area

Despite it only being 10 miles from downtown Houston, Spring Valley has a rural, small-town feel. It’s a place to enjoy a country-living type of lifestyle surrounded by ranch-style or custom-built homes and not many commercial businesses.

6. Access to Top Shopping 

Spring Valley is less than 10 miles from Houston Heights, where you’ll find antique stores, boutiques, and thrift stores lining the famous 19th street. For more retail shopping – and lots of it – Spring Valley residents live only four miles from the Memorial Area, home of the Memorial City Mall. The large, premiere shopping mall features more than 100 shops and services, including Houston’s only American Girl. For extra fun, the mall also includes an Italian carousel and an ice skating rink. For even more shopping, residents drive an extra few minutes to the Galleria area, which hosts Texas’ largest shopping mall, The Galleria Mall. With 375 stores and two hotels, the shopping mall is a mecca for shoppers across the country.
