From its initial founding, Bellaire was designed as a residential area with large lots and plentiful sidewalks. Known as the “City of Homes,” this neighborhood offers a small-town community feeling with a close proximity to Houston’s business and shopping districts as well as major thoroughfares. Just minutes from downtown Houston, the Galleria, and the Texas Medical Center, Bellaire’s location makes it an ideal spot for living, working, and raising a family. Bellaire is an easygoing, self-contained oasis that seems impervious to the buzzing energy of the surrounding city.
The city of Bellaire, which features independent fire and police departments, offers all of the benefits of a large municipality with the characteristic charms of a small town. Recreation facilities abound including plentiful parks, playgrounds, and even a charming downtown area with locally owned shopping and dining options. Buyers flock here to enjoy the tree-lined streets, strong school system, and localized amenities.
