West of Downtown Houston and South of Buffalo Bayou resides the Montrose neighborhood, which is bounded by US 59 in the South, Allen Parkway in the North, Shepard Drive in the West, and Taft Street in the East.
Montrose is a residential neighborhood with a unique set of benefits like no other. While just 7.5 square miles in size, this Houston neighborhood is defined by its unique culture, various entertainment hot spots, and diverse array of shopping and dining options. As such, residential properties in Montrose are in high demand, and CRV Homes can help you build your dream home that suits the Montrose area.
Montrose’s location is one of the best out of all of Houston’s neighborhoods. Montrose is literally within walking distance from downtown for some homes and only a minutes drive for others. In addition, Montrose features a short commute to other Houston business centers such as the Uptown Area and the Texas Medical Center. Since Montrose is so close to the center of Houston, Montrose features a relatively short commute, no matter where you need to go.
One of the main selling points of Montrose is that homes in the neighborhood have great accessibility to local entertainment hotspots. This includes Rice Village for fine dining and shopping, NRG Stadium for sporting events and the rodeo, the Museum District for a fun excursion, the Galleria for an enjoyable trip with friends, and much, much more. Within Montrose itself, the neighborhood is known for many great restaurants such as Nobie’s on Colquitt Street or Riel on Fairview Street. The delicious Common Bond Bakery resides in the montrose area as well. Additionally if you are feeling for a specific meal or another attraction you wanted to visit, Montrose has an ideal location and is accessible to all of Houston. Montrose’s culture and entertainment is what attracts many of its residents and is one of the main reasons the neighborhood is in such high demand.
Homebuilding or moving to this neighborhood allows for access to multiple nearby parks. Some popular examples include Mandel Park, Cherryhurst Park, and Evan Chew Dog Park. These parks allow for various outdoor activities such as basketball, baseball, a weekend hike, or a picnic with the family.
In addition, Buffalo Bayou, which resides in the North of the neighborhood, is a popular choice for runners for their weekend run, bikers for their routes, and everyday residents for their afternoon stroll. Anyone moving into the Montrose neighborhood will be met with plenty of sunshine.
Families that are looking to move into the Montrose neighborhood will have a large number of great schools to choose from. Local public schools that homes in the neighborhood get zoned to include Wilson Elementary School, Lanier Middle School, and Carnegie Vanguard High School. Those looking into private schools as a potential option will be pleased to hear that both Annunciation Orthodox School and St. Steven Episcopal both reside in the area. In addition, many other private schools, such as St. Johns School and Episcopal High School are easily reachable within a daily commute. The schools in a neighborhood are an important consideration that every family must think about when moving to a new neighborhood. If gaining access to better schools is a priority, then the Montrose Neighborhood may be for you.
Montrose offers its residents an amazing location to the vast amount of local amenities, Montrose provides CRV Home’s homebuilding clients with everything they are looking for in a neighborhood. The amazing neighborhood combined with CRV Home’s custom homes allows people to piece together their perfect life.
