About Kingwood

The gorgeous community of Kingwood is known as “The Livable Forest” for a good reason. Its 15,000 acres are covered with mature trees and lush green space. It has 500 acres of parks and nature preserves along with 75 miles of hiking/biking trails threading through its various neighborhoods, creating a wonderful refuge from the hustle and bustle of the big city. All of the greenery makes it easy to forget that it’s only a 30-minute drive or less to the best things urban Houston can offer. Kingwood was founded in 1971 and has steadily grown ever since. It’s comprised of nearly 40 villages representing a wide array of home styles and values, so buyers have plenty of options available. Also, several villages are under development offering new, single-family home construction on lot sizes ranging from 55’ to 75’.
