Often likened to New York’s Greenwich Village, the Neartown area attracts an eclectic mix of residents and businesses, as well as a host of political figures, outlaws and millionaires. Neartown has been home to actor Clark Gable, Howard Hughes, Dr. Denton Cooley and famous individuals from Houston’s past such as Fondren, Abercrombie, Masterson and Hogg. President Lyndon B. Johnson lived in the neighborhood while he taught at San Jacinto High School. The site of what was the family home of Mirabeau B. Lamar, president of the Republic of Texas, is now the home of Woodrow Wilson Elementary School. The bungalow where Walter Cronkite spent his youth is located in the 1400 block of Westheimer.
Montrose is primarily a residential neighborhood located in the Neartown area of Houston, Texas. Established in 1911, the neighborhood is a demographically diverse area with renovated mansions, bungalows with wide porches, and cottages located along tree-lined boulevards. Montrose is one of the more pedestrian-friendly neighborhoods in Houston and is a major cultural hub. Montrose has been called the “Heart of Houston,” the “strangest neighborhood east of the Pecos,” and was named one of the “ten great neighborhoods in America” in 2009.
Montrose is our most popular neighborhood and we have 2 and 3 story homes, all with FIRST FLOOR LIVING, always in the works in here.
