There are so many reasons why downtown Houston living is fantastic. Urbanites flock to this beautiful area of the city because it affords them the convenience of living and playing in one area. The professional opportunities are abundant, and life here is upscale and exciting. However, for those who desire urban living, with a little more suburban feeling, they must consider Houston’s Inner Loop. And here are the top reasons why Houston’s Inner Loop is drawing in buyers every day:
Montrose, which was named as one of the top 10 Great Neighborhoods in the U.S. by the American Planning Association in 2009, is one of the most culturally interesting areas of Houston. With its eclectic combination of old and new real estate, it attracts many types of buyers. While some buyers are drawn to the beautifully preserved historic homes found here, others are attracted to the area’s new high rises and loft homes. Montrose is still seen as a rather Bohemian part of town, and the neighborhoods reflect this sentiment. Courtland Place, for example, has some of the best 20th century homes in the area, many of which were built by the most renowned architects of the time, while the homes of Avondale, Westmoreland and Cherryhurst all boast very charming homes with loads of character.
Midtown Houston has a great reputation for being very pedestrian-friendly, where residents can enjoy walking from charming, sidewalk cafes to some of the area’s best nightclubs. Midtown, which enjoys a great location near Downtown, Montrose and the Medical Center, draws in a diverse population. We love Midtown because of the renaissance it’s enjoyed over the last 10 years. Midtown is also known for its great selection of Houston real estate, including single-family homes, lofts, townhomes and condos.
Houston Heights, fondly referred to simply as the Heights, boasts a small-town feel with plenty of fantastic real estate. Some of the area’s finest Victorian homes are found here, although many residents enjoy the charming cottages that also make up this neighborhood. Houston Heights has also experienced a rebirth in the last few years, and residents here relish in the small-town atmosphere with the nearby city amenities.
