Houston luxury real estate crosses a wide range of property types and can be found in many of the neighborhoods around the largest city in Texas. Whilst a luxury home might conjure visions of a grand mansion set in its own grounds, for others the footprint of a luxury property is considerably smaller. For those homeowners who thrive on the hustle and bustle of Downtown, luxury apartments and luxury high rise condos are sought after. Additional value is added to a unit on factors other than the square footage of the floor plan. Luxury real estate can be defined more by the value of a property than the size. Building amenities, for instance, can elevate values, with access to a spa, a rooftop pool, a fitness center, a communal lobby area, concierge services or parking. Another factor is the orientation of a unit with sunset views commanding a premium value, especially if the views can be enjoyed from a private balcony or terrace, or through a dramatic wall of floor to ceiling windows. Another important factor is the location, with so many things to do and see in Houston, a great location within walking distance of fine dining, retail, and cultural attractions carries a premium value.
