Montrose

Historic Montrose, like adjoining Midtown, has experienced a renaissance in recent years. Just west of Downtown Houston, Montrose offers a mix of historic stately homes, brick bungalows, townhomes, high-rises, lofts, and apartment complexes. The close-in location and diverse population appeal to many buyers.

Buffalo Bayou forms Montrose’s northern boundary, with Highway 59 and the Museum District to the south, Shepherd and the Upper Kirby District to the west, and Midtown and a revitalized Downtown to the east.

Montrose residents are a well-rounded mix of artists, musicians, students, families, business professionals, and corporate executives. Many of Montrose’s original homes have been completely renovated and updated while others have been replaced by higher-density townhomes and lofts. Both new and old possess great character and embrace the eclectic nature of the neighborhood that surrounds them.

Named for an historic town in Scotland, Montrose was developed in 1911 by J.W. Link. Link’s imposing mansion on Montrose Boulevard is now the Administrative Building for St. Thomas University.
Neighborhoods within Montrose include gated Courtlandt Place, where all homes are listed in the National Historic Register and most have City of Houston Landmark designations. Westmoreland, Avondale and Cherryhurst retain much of their original character, generating a Southern, small-town atmosphere. In Hyde Park, resale shops, beauty shops and law offices are sprinkled in with houses, duplexes and older apartment buildings.
 
The West Gray/River Oaks shopping area offers grocery stores, movie theatres, a wide variety of retail and clothing stores, resale boutiques, coffee houses, restaurants and entertainment venues.
