Visit to The Mondrian at the Museum

Recently the Roger Martin Properties team attended a lunchtime presentation at one of Houston’s newest midrise complex in the Museum District, The Mondrian at the Museum.

This complex features a contemporary mid-century modern design with only 20 residences.  The one-story units start in size at 2900 square feet, and include great display walls for artwork. Special features include a private terrace with great views and (best of all!) an outdoor fireplace. This complex is great for empty-nesters looking to downsize to a “lock, leave and travel” lifestyle.

The Mondrian’s great location is just steps away from Herman Park, Houston’s Light Rail, and the Texas Medical Center.

If you or someone you know is considering a move, we’d love to show you The Mondrian at the Museum.
