Montebello Houston Condos For Sale | Montebello Condo Guide

Montebello

One of Houston’s most popular luxury highrises, The Montebello is a 30-story residential building towering over Uptown Park, just north of the vibrant Galleria area.

Montebello Executive Summary

Montebello, Italian for “pretty mountain”, is a Giorgio Borlenghi luxury highrise with 98 units and 4 two-level penthouses. The Houston-based developer is also behind luxury highrises Villa D’Este, Four Leaf Towers, and Belfiore.

The building offers:

  • FULL-SERVICE AMENITIES: Aside from stunning views of the Galleria skyline and tree-tops of oakwood-rich Tanglewood, residents also enjoy Montebello’s full-service amenities. These include 24 hour concierge, valet parking, manned gate, porter, fitness center, spa, clubhouse, party room, heated swimming pool & garden.
  • GOOD APPRECIATION: Montebello, completed in 2003, has posted strong appreciation rates over the last decade. With a median sales price of $1.4M, Montebello is one of Houston’s best performing luxury condos.
  • LARGE FLOOR PLANS: Like other Giorgio Borlenghi highrises, Montebello features only 4 units per floor. Montebello condos offer large living spaces ranging in size from 2,000 to more than 4,800 square feet. Standard unit amenities include 10-foot ceilings, large kitchens with premium appliances, large balconies, Jacuzzi tubs with outside views, dual pane windows, and public rooms at the perimeter.
  • UPTOWN PARK RETAIL CENTER: Located across the street from Montebello, Uptown Park Retail Center resembles a European village. The retail center is also an Interfin project and features a main boulevard and a centrally located fountain. Housing buildings with different elevations, Uptown Park Retail Center features boutique shops, antique and furniture stores, two upscale salons and fine dining.
  • LOCATION NEAR GALLERIA AND TANGLEWOOD: Nestled along Uptown Park Boulevard, Montebello is only a few steps away from Galleria and Tanglewood areas. Featuring over 425 Yelp-rated establishments and 3,000 businesses, the Galleria district  is one of Houston’s main business and retail centers. Tanglewood, less than a mile away, is one of Houston’s most expensive neighborhoods. The beautiful wooded neighborhood is home to former US Presidents, celebrities and CEOs.
  • EASY ACCESS TO BUSINESS CENTERS: Downtown and Energy Corridor, two of Houston’s largest employment centers, are easily accessible from Montebello condos. Downtown, less than 15 minutes away via I-10 , is home to the headquarters of several prominent companies. The Central Business Center houses 3,000 companies with over 150,000 employees. Also less than 15 minutes away, the Energy Corridor is home to some of the world’s most powerful energy industry corporations with more than 80,000 employees.
“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 ACTIVITY AND GREEN SPACE: Residents are minutes from  outdoor activity areas and green spaces in Memorial Park, the largest urban park in Houston. Memorial Park features tennis courts, volleyball courts, a fitness center, swimming pool, skating rinks, bike trails and a three-mile running course. The top-rated Memorial Park Golf Course, located within Memorial Park, has a course rating of 73 and a slope rating of 122. The park also hosts the annual Spring Bayou City Art Festival.

Buying in The Montebello can be tricky for several reasons. First, prices have fluctuated a bit with the recent launch of so many new construction luxury condos.

In addition, while there is about a $10k per floor premium, certain units overlook disadvantaged locations and have more freeway noise than others – impacting values. Also, since the building was constructed in 2003, some units are starting to go through recent upgrades and renovations. All of these factors need to be taken into account when evaluating a unit’s fair value price.
