Lazybrook and Timbergrove Manor (collectively, “Lazybrook/Timbergrove”) are two adjoining, deed-restricted neighborhoods located approximately 7 miles northwest of Downtown Houston, Texas. Located inside the 610 Loop and just west of the Houston Heights, Lazybrook and Timbergrove Manor are situated along the wooded banks of White Oak Bayou in the near northwest quadrant of the city.
Originally settled by German farmers in the late 1800s, the area was the site of a major oil discovery in the 1930s known as “Eureka.” In the 1950s, residential development finally emerged in the area beginning with Timbergrove Manor, followed by Lazybrook. Timbergrove Manor was named for the many pine trees sheltering the area, while Lazybrook was named for White Oak Bayou, which forms the neighborhood’s eastern boundary.
The community primarily consists of mid-century, one-story ranch style brick homes. Lazybrook/Timbergrove is enjoying a renaissance as demand increases for close-in housing in Houston. Besides the anchor communities of Lazybrook and Timbergrove Manor, upscale townhome developments such as Heritage Creek, Timbergrove Heights, Timbergrove Terrace, Timbergrove Point, and Timbergrove Gardens are within the larger neighborhood. The northwestern corner Lazybrook/Timbergrove extending outside of Loop 610 on both sides of US 290, includes Brookwood, a large lot subdivision, the Brookhollow business park, Northwest Mall and Houston Independent School District’s (HISD) headquarters and Delmar Stadium complex. Lazybrook/Timbergrove is served by Houston Independent School District.
