Standard unit amenities include gourmet kitchens, hardwood floors, high ceilings, large windows, contemporary bathrooms and private terraces.
  • STATELY ARCHITECTURE: Standing at 503 ft., The Huntingdon is currently the tallest residential condo building in Houston. The Huntingdon’s stately building design gives its structure a “looming and imposing effect”. It also provides residents exclusive access to the spectacular views of River Oaks, Downtown, and Galleria skyline.
  • LUXURY AMENITIES: The Huntingdon features some of the best condo amenities in Houston. Residents enjoy first class amenities including concierge services, valet parking, door staff, two swimming pools, a club room, a conference room, a fitness center and a sauna.

“Paige Martin and her team are THE condo experts in Houston. Paige has literally written the book (The Definitive Houston Condo Buying Guide) about buying a condo in Houston. They know what buildings to avoid, what floor plans to be wary about, and they have relationships to help with off market inventory and sales. If you’re considering buying or selling a condo (new construction or one of the current buildings) I would highly recommend you talk to them. You won’t find any other Realtor or team who is as knowledgeable as they are about the pro’s and con’s of Houston’s highrise buildings. They are fabulous to work with, are very candid with their advice and will look out for your best interests. I highly recommend the HoustonProperties.com team.”
  • OUTDOOR ENTERTAINMENT: Residents are few minutes away from several outdoor recreational centers or parks. Located less than a mile from The Huntingdon, the exclusive River Oaks Country Club features a golf course, tennis courts, and a swimming area. Memorial Park and Hermann Park, less than 3 miles away, also offer various outdoor entertainment options. Memorial Park, Houston’s largest public park, features miles of trails, a public golf course and an arboretum and nature center. Hermann Park is a cultural and recreational hotspot that houses museums, an outdoor theater, a jogging track, a public golf course, a beautiful rose garden, and picnic spaces.

Downtown houses the headquarters of several prominent companies with over 150,000 employees. Featuring more than 50 medical and research institutions, The Texas Medical Center is the world’s largest medical center. With more than 23 million square feet of office space, the Galleria is home to approximately 2,000 companies.

Buying in The Huntingdon can be tricky for several reasons. The building has over 100 units, each with different pro’s and con’s: For instance, certain views are superior to others – this affects the value of different units (both positively and negatively.)

The Huntingdon is also an older building and while it has shown good condo appreciation rates the last 10 years, there are many comparable newer residential highrises within The Loop.
