Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: I love Houston, and I love living in this house when it's not rented. Even though I live here in this big city, I crave quiet and relaxation, and that's just what I get living here. I enjoy exploring the city - from nightlife, to sports and the arts, I always try to be involved.

Why the Owner Chose Montrose, Houston, TX, USA:
I've always wanted to live in this part of Houston. To me, it has the best of everything - a great location, close to Montrose, downtown, the Galleria and parks, which I enjoy. It's also a very cozy house, and extremely comfortable. When you visit this neighborhood, you'll see a mixture of the historic and the new, of contemporary sophistication and old-time elegance. I think that mixture is so interesting and adds to Houston's appeal.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love the backyard. It's private and has a nice deck for a lazy morning. The grill is also really nice for those days when you just want to have some fun outside. I also like the Jacuzzi bathtub. It's the perfect way to cap off a busy day. The tree-lined street is also a favorite feature. I often just put my sneakers on and go for a run around the block. It's a great way to decompress and enjoy the surroundings. And anytime is a good time to sit on the shaded front porch swing and watch as the occasional neighbor walks by.
