Montrose is an eclectic neighborhood that began as Houston’s first planned “suburb” in 1911. Since that time, Montrose has become a hub for the arts, unique dining and more. The neighborhood continues to appeal to artists but also attracts professionals, academics, families and empty nesters.
Housing within Montrose is as diverse as its population. Choices include mansions in historic districts, luxury patio homes, vintage bungalows, upscale high-rise condominiums, New York-style lofts, and upscale apartments. It’s also home to hip indie art galleries and the octagonal Rothko Chapel, featuring huge abstract murals by its namesake artist. With its downtown skyline views, Eleanor Tinsley Park is a popular spot for picnics and sand volleyball.
