Welcome to Montrose, Houston, TX
About Homes for Sale in Montrose
Montrose area offers an interesting selection of architecture and the ideal walkable neighborhood. The area has a warm, aesthetic appeal with a variety of housing options. Montrose was born in 1911, a streetcar suburb for wealthy Houstonians, but just 50 years later it became the white-hot center for families, students, and professionals alike. The area has become one of America’s LGBT hubs beginning in the early 1970s and still hosts the annual Pride Parade, a huge, family-friendly, summer-evening soiree. The demands for living in this area has gone up due to its walkable streets, nationally acclaimed bars and restaurants, and buzzed-about boutiques coupled with its elegantly restored mansions, contemporary condos, and Craftsman bungalows.
The threads of the bohemian lifestyle remain in Montrose’s tapestry, particularly in the park-like environs of the world-renowned Menil Collection and Rothko Chapel. There, on the thick St. Augustine grass under the live oaks, couples and friends spread blankets, throw Frisbees, and read, before heading out for a beer at West Alabama Ice House.
