It is located just west of Loop 610, bound by the Katy Freeway to the south, Antoine Drive to the west, Silber Road to the east, and Westview Drive to the north. Residents enjoy easy access to the Galleria, Energy Corridor, and Downtown.
The neighborhood was developed in the early 1950s along with neighboring community Hilshire Village. The original houses are mainly mid-century ranch style. However, a wave of new construction has begun in Afton Village, as new residents are attracted by its great location and community feel.
