Located at the junction of Texas 105 and FM 149, and near the southwestern edge of Sam Houston National Forest, the town of Montgomery is 15 miles west of Conroe and 50 miles northwest of downtown Houston. One of the oldest towns in the state, Montgomery celebrated its 175th anniversary in 2012. From its humble beginnings as a trading post, it has not grown much; the population in 2010 census was only 621. Yet in spite of this, and because of Montgomery’s ability to offer residents a suburban/rural feel, many consider it one of the best places to live in Texas.
With its quaintly preserved, 19th-Century historic downtown and close proximity to Lake Conroe, Montgomery has all the benefits of waterfront living without being in the Conroe city limits. Residents love the tight community feel and enjoy its small town holiday celebrations, like Trick-or-Treating, Light Up the Park, Santa, etc., which are not able to be celebrated in the same way in larger civic centers.
Education is a huge plus here as well. Montgomery’s school district is highly rated and boasts a student to teacher ratio of 16:1.
A manmade lake that opened in 1973, the 21,000-acre Lake Conroe meanders along 21 miles, and is the reserve drinking water supply for the City of Houston, offering clean, clear water for recreational activities such as boating, fishing, hunting, hiking, golfing, swimming, and water skiing. Lake Conroe and the surrounding areas comprise a thriving real estate market where home buyers can find rare one-of-a-kind historic homes, desirable ranches, lake-front mansions, master-planned communities, traditional subdivisions and multi-family complexes. With its more wide open spaces, there’s also a good chance you will get to have more land with your house!
The rolling Montgomery hills are home to the first Tiger Woods designed golf course in the U.S. – Bluejack National. Bluejack National is a 767 acre developed community of 495 residences, offering amenities and activities to fit every lifestyle. There are over 35 acres of fishing lakes and seven miles of hiking, biking and running trails running throughout the community.
Other major master-planned communities in the area include Bentwater – a 1,400 acre neighborhood spanning 12.5 miles of Lake Conroe and nestled against the Sam Houston National Forest; and Woodforest – 3,000 acres of wooded terraing in the southern part of the county
Tree lined streets, beautiful historic parks, great antique shopping, delicious food served at numerous casual and upscale restaurants — all this makes Montgomery the place with something for everyone.
