Colleyville Real Estate

A wealthy suburb of Fort Worth, Colleyville, Texas, lies in the borders of Tarrant County and sits on a total area of 13.1 square miles. The city is quickly growing: Its population was measured to be nearly 24,500 in 2008, a rise of almost 25 percent since the 2000 census.

Colleyville is centrally located within easy distance of many amenities. The Dallas-Fort Worth Airport is just five miles away, and it is about 16 miles from Fort Worth's business district. The area that now encompasses the city was first settled around the 1850s. The St. Louis, Arkansas, & Texas Railway later extended its route between Fort Worth and Grapevine in the late 19th century, passing through what is now Colleyville in 1888 and bringing it new development. The city incorporated on January 10, 1956.

Most of the children in the city are served by the Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District, which has two high schools, including the highly ranked Colleyville Heritage. The northwestern part of Colleyville lies in the Keller Independent School District, and so some students are zoned to those schools, while others may lie within the jurisdictions of the Birdville, Hurst-Euless-Bedford and Carroll independent school district. The city has private Lutheran and Montessori elementary schools as well as Covenant Christian Academy, an accredited K-12 school.

Colleyville residents had a median household income in 2008 of around $143,000, much higher than the area's average. The median home value at the same time was more than $413,000, almost doubled since 2000. The city has 11 parks for its residents to enjoy and a full-service library. There are around 10 shopping centers for residents to enjoy, as well as the Colleyville Cinema + Grille and IMAX Theatre. The city's Tivoli Wines schedules free wine tastings, and the nearest hospital is only about four miles away in Bedford.
