Bellaire is located in Harris County, Texas. Bellaire, originated from “good air”, is also known as the “City of Homes”, since the Houston neighborhood is mostly residential. Currently it is experiencing a building boom, because older houses are being replaced with new construction. The older homes are going back to 1918, when Bellaire was created. By 1929 there were 75 homes and that number increased significantly in only 10 years to 330 homes. Since 1939, the issue in Bellaire was choosing between business expansions or keeping the identity of a residential community. However, everyone did agree on the fact that Bellaire is a grand place to live. Single-family homes run from prizes between $300,000 to $900,000 or more. Because of this, Bellaire offers a lot of variety to buyers. Bellaire might be mostly residential, but it’s near the Medical Center, Downtown Houston and the Galleria. This is another factor of why Bellaire is so appealing to buyers. Bellaire is surrounded by the city of Houston, Southside Place and West University Place. And when you add the award-winning schools, excellent parks, libraries and quality city services to it, it creates a really popular neighborhood. It combines charm with big city conveniences!
