Described as “the strangest neighborhood east of the Pecos”, Montrose is a residential community in the heart of the city. Its charm comes from its bungalow homes, coffee shops and art galleries, while its character comes from the foodies and eccentrics and who live here and love the diversity and walkability of this 4 square mile eclectic oasis.
Centered on Montrose Boulevard and Westheimer Road, this is the part of Houston that is the hub of its LBGT community. Here you will find thrift, vintage and second-hand shopping. Off the main streets, this community is blessed with quiet, residential tree-lined streets. Recent development has seen the introduction of remodeled and new homes along with upmarket boutiques and restaurants.
