Benefits of Building Your Home in Braes Heights or Ayrshire

Located south of West University and east of Bellaire, this sleepy area inside the loop feels like a quaint suburban neighborhood — but without the long commute into town. Think of it as a cozy retreat from the usual hustle-and-bustle of the trendier parts of Houston like Upper Kirby and Montrose but still gives you easy access to everything you love.

Residents of Braes Heights and Ayrshire love their neighborhoods for three distinct reasons:

  • Space. Unlike other, more happenin’ parts of town where lots are being bought up and crammed with new-school townhomes, these areas have largely remained traditional enclaves with ample room for yards, landscaping, and square footage. 
  • Location. With its setting in the southwest Loop, everything is quieter, but you still have speedy access to the bounteous perks of Bellaire, Meyerland, The Galleria, Rice Village, and the Texas Medical Center. 
  • Personality. High-quality parks and schools combined with walkability and throwback charm create twin neighborhoods eager to please their residents.

A Trusted Local Name in Custom Home Building

BuildFBG is operated by Frankel Building Group, one of the leading design-build firms in Houston, TX. Since 1988, our parent company has been creating luxury custom homes throughout the top neighborhoods in the greater Houston area for more than 30 years. In fact, two of our favorite homes from this area are featured in the BuildFBG Gallery, giving you an in-depth view of the quality of our work.

Because of the close relationship with Frankel, you have access to the same full slate of industry-leading appliances, amenities, and features. You will also partake in our comprehensive “Whole Home” design experience, wherein our architects and designers meet with you face-to-face to ensure we create the exact home you want. 

Our clients love the opportunity to be budget-friendly in hopes of shortening the project timeline. BuildFBG gives you the ability to build the home of your dreams from scratch and move in less than a year after construction begins!

Protection Against Potential Flooding

We are personally familiar with the heartache that comes with losing a home to Houston flooding. For this reason, BuildFBG constructs more than half of our homes using a vented pier-and-beam foundation system. This architectural feature dramatically reduces the chance a home can flood, as it allows floodwaters to flow under your home without damaging the infrastructure. Thus, you can build in either Braes Heights or Ayrshire without fear of future floods. 

The Perks of LEED for Homes Certification

We’re big believers in the benefits of LEED for Home standards. Those principles help homes use energy more efficiently all year long, which lowers your utility bills and increases the resale value of your home. We’re such big fans of these home-building guidelines that we exceed them on every house we build and do so without any upcharge to you.
