If you are looking for some really cool Lubbock homes for sale, Rush neighborhood is a definite place to search. Rush is a well-established luxury subdivision with large trees and well-developed landscapes. It is located between 4th Street, 19th Street, Quaker Avenue and Toledo. A lot of doctors and professors have found this to be the best place to settle not only because it is near to Tech, LCU, UMC hospital and Covenant hospital but because it has some of the most beautiful homes in Lubbock. I could not afford to live in Rush but I would love to (The majority of homes are in the two hundred thousand to one million dollar price range).
I have had dinners with friends who live in Rush and I can tell you that both the exteriors and the interiors are stylish. These houses sprawl to give a lot of room for classy décor. You can tell that the original Lubbock architects must have had a clear vision in putting this neighborhood together. I recommend doing a walking tour of the entire Rush subdivision so you can get a real feel for its beauty.
Another nice thing about the Rush area is that it has two parks nearby that are lovely. Higginbotham Park has a mile jogging trail, playground, and a concrete basketball/volleyball court. As well, just down the road is a relatively new set of restaurants and a huge grocery store, which are convenient to the Rush crowd. That being said, neither of these create unnecessary traffic or crowding in Rush.
I highly recommend Rush if you can afford it and if you want to settle in an older neighborhood in Lubbock where character is valued above brand spanking new. (You can take a virtual 3D animation tour of it online if you want to do that before checking into the neighborhood in person.)
