Southampton Place is a small yet vibrant and affluent community of mostly single-family homes just north of Rice University. It often ranks highly as one of most expensive neighbourhoods in Houston due to its great Inner Loop location, luxury homes, and upscale neighbourhood. Southampton Houston has tree-lined streets and beautiful landscape. The residential part of Southampton Place is filled with elegant oaks and charming ambience. The neighbourhood's system of alleys permits more expansive front yards and green space for trees.
