Lancaster Place is a niche neighborhood ideally situated near the southern edge of the Montrose district of central Houston.


Living Well Situated

While preserving the vintage ambience and intimacy of bungalows and cottages from the 1920s & 1930s, Lancaster Place has proximity to a surprising number of modern Houston’s employers and cultural institutions like the Medical Center, Rice University, Downtown offices, the Museum District and the Menil Collection. 

There is a wealth of schools, churches, libraries, fine restaurants, entertainment venues, lovely neighborhoods and city parks, both large and small, within walking or biking distance of Lancaster Place. All points of central city living are within our compass. In 2009, Montrose was named one of the top ten urban neighborhoods in the United States by the American Planning Association; and Lancaster Place is proud to be an integral part of that whole.
