"Houston has to grow. Montrose is going to lead the procession."
- J.W. Link, early Houston developer
Originally designed as a "streetcar suburb" in 1911, Montrose has worn many hats over the last 100+ years, including being a hub for counterculture and progressive movements, all while maintaining a bohemian flavor. Montrose today is an eclectic inner-loop neighborhood where residents embrace diversity and growth, while striving to maintain the area's unique history.
Home to some of the oldest residential architecture in the city, Montrose today has an array of residential real estate options. Whether you prefer a garden apartment, quaint duplex, cozy bungalow, classic craftsman, early 20th century estate, or a newly constructed townhome, Montrose offers something for everyone.
Walkability is part of Montrose's appeal. Enjoy brunch or grab coffee from a local cafe, and walk oak-lined streets, such as Lovett and Avondale, or historic St. Thomas University, where you can enjoy some of the city's finest architecture. Enjoy antiquing, thrift shopping, boutiques, and specialty shops along Westheimer. When the sun sets, venture out to one of the many watering holes, night clubs, and entertainment venues. Those who prefer active lifestyles can easily access Buffalo Bayou Park and enjoy trails for walking and biking, as well as ample green spaces for sports and enjoying Houston's skyline when weather permits.
Conveniently located to I-45, I-69, HWY 288, and 610, Montrose boasts a number of mobility options to and from many of Houston's business centers. Bordered by the Washington Corridor and Museum District to the north and south, and Upper Kirby/River Oaks and Midtown to the east and west, Montrose sits in a central location within the city. Several of Houston's premier private and parochial schools are located nearby, as is St. Thomas University and Rice University. The pulse of Houston is alive and well in Montrose!
