Colleyville Real Estate
With the relaxed, friendly atmosphere of a small town located in one of America’s most exciting and sophisticated metropolitan areas, Colleyville is a powerful combination of forces.
Recognized as a premier area to live, work and play, Colleyville is an affluent community that features a wide array of housing, including custom-built homes, a respectable public educational system, as well access to quality private schools and a long list of recreational opportunities.
Originally a small settlement along the Cotton Belt rail line, Colleyville was originally known as Bransford.
Later, the name was changed in 1914 to honor Dr. Lilburn Howard Colley, a beloved physician, who settled in Texas in 1880.
Today, Colleyville is a sought-after community by business executives, who own and operate companies and benefit from the proximity to one of the world’s busiest airports (it is only minutes from D/FW International Airport).
Due to the significant number of direct flights offered, executives have been known to attend out of town meetings and be home for dinner the same day.
Amenities within Colleyville’s 13.1-square miles are among the best in the region. From upscale boutiques and luxurious spas to great restaurants and a popular farmers market, Colleyville residents have access to tons of retail and services.
Colleyville Center is a quality community event venue, perfect for weddings and business meetings. It has also been recognized as one of the safest communities in Texas.
The city offers extensive recreational opportunities. Its trail system, including the regional Cotton Belt Trail, is a magnet for those who enjoy jogging, as well as hiking and biking through the city’s beautiful landscapes.
It also has impressive amateur sports parks including the 46-acre Colleyville Nature Center, which offers tranquility and opportunity for relaxation beside nine ponds, an amphitheater, covered pavilion with a grill, playground and fishing pier.
Located between Dallas and Fort Worth, residents have access to an ever-increasing array of museums, concert venues and sports. The annual Fort Worth Stock Show & Rodeo is a Colleyville staple, and the Dallas Cowboys’ home field at AT&T Stadium and the Globe Life Field in Arlington, the new home of the Texas Rangers, are all just a short drive away.
Colleyville had good neighborhood schools, and most households are within the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District.
A few in the northwest neighborhoods attend schools in the Keller Independent School District. Other small areas are within the boundaries of Birdville Independent School District, Hurst-Euless-Bedford Independent School District and Carroll Independent School District.
