Idylwood was mentioned in this past Saturday’s (September 3, 2016) Business section. From the article:
The neighborhood, which has 340 homes, is near downtown, the Texas Medical Center, Hermann Park and the Museum District. Physically, it’s cocooned by Brays Bayou, slices of the Gus Wortham Golf Course and the Villa de Matel, a Roman Catholic convent and basilica – all inside the southeastern corner of the Loop 610. The bayou and sloping topography naturally limit flooding. There has been a slow infusion of new construction, but the area has strict deed restrictions and is mostly made up of classic brick bungalows. Realtor Robert Searcy said young professionals and families have been drawn in recent years, and the type of buyer seems to be broadening. Few homes are for sale, and they spend on average about 40 days on the market.
