Larchmont is a neighborhood of single family residences located in Houston (Texas, USA). It is located between Richmond Avenue and Interstate 69/U.S. Route 59 (Southwest Freeway).[1]

Originally built in the mid-1950s, by 2003 the existing single story ranch style homes have begun to be replaced by new construction 2 story homes. The neighborhood is bordered by Richmond Avenue, Chimney Rock, the Southwest Freeway, and South Rice. Larchmont is located very close to major shopping and business centers such as The Galleria and Greenway Plaza, and is approximately 6 miles (9.7 km) from downtown Houston.

As of 1997 several streets that used to have through traffic are now dead-ended at Chimney Rock.
