Welcome to Montrose Place Townhomes
Montrose Place Townhomes is located at 606 Marshall Street in Houston, Texas. The condominium apartment community sits in the heart of the Audubon Place Historical District and largely in the Montrose Historical District.
Our community is located right on the out skirts of Downtown Houston. Our neighborhood is one of the first inner-city suburbs with the feel of home, but the convenience of inner-city living. The community is four blocks from the Metro Rail commuter train and HWY 59, HWY288 and I45, and less than ten minutes from the Texas Medical Center, University of Houston, and Houston Community College.
The condominium apartment community consist of 36 individually owned units in three separate buildings sharing one common roof. We have a common area pool area, two grilling stations, and two pool side tables for casual entertaining. Montrose Place Townhomes is a Deed Restricted community. The Home Owners form an Association of Members that govern the day-to-day business and culture of this community.
The Montrose neighborhood of Houston enjoys a rich cultural and ethnic diversity. Originally platted in 1911, the district was developed by J. W. Link of the Houston Land Corporation. Link’s house on Montrose Boulevard is now the administrative building for the University of St. Thomas. Long known as a Bohemian artist area, property values in Montrose have risen sharply since the 1980s as Houstonians move back into town, permanently altering the demographics of the neighborhood. Montrose today is a polyglot, with graceful old mansions, Arts and Crafts bungalows, new townhouses and patio homes, duplexes, apartments, shops, a university, world-class museums and some of the finest restaurants in Houston.
Each of the neighborhoods which comprise Montrose District has their individual characteristics. Courtlandt Place is a gated boulevard with fine old early 20th century homes, most built 1909-1920. The neighborhood and every home are registered in the National Register of Historic Places. Westmoreland Place, platted 1902, and Avondale also offer historic old mansions plus new construction and multi-family housing. Cherryhurst exudes a small Southern-town atmosphere and encompasses a park and one of Houston’s most historic schools, Woodrow Wilson Elementary. Hyde Park is the most diverse of the Montrose neighborhoods, home to traditional retail and new wave shops, trendy restaurants and clubs, remodeled bungalows, upscale new construction patio homes and town homes, lofts, and multi-family complexes. Montrose Place is a more traditional neighborhood of mostly two-story brick homes, tall trees and wide streets surrounding Lanier Middle School.
Montrose’s melting pot creates a diverse and sophisticated urban personality. Some of Houston’s most exclusive shopping is found along W. Gray, from designer clothes to fine crystal and silver to antique furniture and rugs. Area restaurants rival or surpass others in the city. Montrose boasts a number of fine museums, from the De Menil Collection and Rothko Chapel to the Holocaust Museum and the Byzantine Chapel of the University of St. Thomas. There are a number of private and public schools, including the University of St. Thomas, Annunciation Orthodox School, St. Stephens Episcopal, St. Ann’s School, and the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA).
Houston is a thriving business hub for multi-national companies and offers a diverse population base with a correspondingly wide selection of lifestyle options and locations. The Houston metropolitan area stretches from the inner-Loop 610 area and downtown, north to The Woodlands, east to Kingwood and Atascocita, south to Clear Lake and Galveston, southwest to Sugar Land, and west to Katy.
Each of these areas offers neighborhoods with homes in a variety of prices and styles. The inner-Loop 610 area is a mix of luxury neighborhoods, historic homes, town homes, soaring residential high rise buildings, cutting-edge lofts, and gated patio home enclaves. Downtown Houston offers first class entertainment venues with theater, opera, symphony, ballet, traveling Broadway shows, and restaurants. The Woodlands is one of Houston’s first and most successful master planned communities and offers expansive neighborhoods built around championship golf courses and luxury country clubs. Kingwood is another master planned community with excellent golf and country club availability, and both Kingwood and the Atascocita enjoy proximity to beautiful Lake Houston.
The communities from Clear Lake to Galveston, only 30 to 60 miles from downtown Houston, provide wonderful opportunities for primary or vacation homes on the beach, the bay, along canals or in Galveston’s historic districts. Sugar Land, 15 minutes from the famed Galleria, is a stand-alone city with numerous master planned communities and abundant lakes, golf courses and country clubs.
Much of Houston’s growth is channeled west of the city, from the Galleria area and its world-class shopping and restaurants, through the secluded incorporated Memorial Villages, out to the suburban city of Katy, about 50 miles away.
