It was a nice day on Friday so I took some pics, hope you enjoy.

Longwood is located off Louetta Blvd, about equidistant between Hwy 249 & US 290 in Cypress. It is bordered by Lakewood to the North and Coles Crossing to the South.
(note: subject in photo is the Longwood shopping center, the neighborhood is top right)

Entrance to Longwood on Louetta, behind it is a small lake with a jogging track around it.

The neighborhood began development in 1993 by Cypress Real Estate Advisors

Longwood strives to maintain its 'woodsy' character and has a strict HOA regulations that prohibit the removal of trees larger than 3 caliper inches without approval.

Longwood has 21 sections in all.

Longwood has 3 gated sections, this is one of two within an area called "the Parkes"

Miles of Hike & Bike Trails run throughout the neighborhood

Telge Entrance to Longwood

Quaint church at the crossroads in Cypress. This is where all the major roads intersect, forming a picturesque triangle. This would be an ideal spot for a real town center.

I love these pictures of your neighborhood. We've visited Houston before and was really impressed with the tree lined streets, neigborhood parks, and beautiful homes. Seems like a nice place to raise a family.......Hope to see more pictures.

Hey Mr football . . . That was great seeing the pics. Really gave me a feel for the community. Here in california homes would start from the 1 million mark to be in a place as nice as that. I have a home as a rental in Indian Village in Cypress I think it's called. Is that visable on the aerial map you posted? I chose it because there were a fair amount of trees as aopposed to some other communities I looked at which looked barren except for a few starter trees.
Where did you get the aerial picture?

Looks very nice. What is the commute like from there to the med center? What do the HOA fees run?
