Welcome to 411 A Lovett Blvd, built by Mike Croix and customized by the current/original owners.
This four bedroom, four & a half bath brick Montrose townhome in Courtlandt Manor tells an intriguing story through its remarkable, custom design. Great walkabilty to some of Montrose's best eateries, and very convenient to Downtown Houston and the Texas Medical Center.
The rooftop terrace is inspired by historic Hotel Emma in San Antonio and rooftop terraces in NYC . The current owners researched the 1890's outdoor tiles and found the exact Saltillo tile pattern commonly used in England during this era. Great in Old England and current in the design world, this translates to staying power and classic design. You enjoy a constant breeze and thoughtful balance of shade and light on this rooftop terrace.
Gorgeous views of the Houston skyline from the rooftop terrace and gardens. The owners consider this space as a "dream come true." There is a continuous breeze, and they designed the connecting roof from the townhouse to the fireplace wall with the original architect on the project. Two sides of the large terrace are open to allow sunlight in for the planting gardens, while there is always shade from the roof.
