Bellaire TX Neighborhood Guide
Bellaire is surrounded by the cities of Houston and West University. It has a central location in the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land metropolitan area, and a southwest location in Harris County.
Two major freeways, the Southwest Fwy and West Loop S, provide easy access to key Houston locations, including the Galleria, the Medical Center, Downtown Houston, and the Museum District.
Bellaire’s roots can be traced to a certain William Wright Baldwin, president of the South End Land Company, who bought a piece of William Marsh Rice’s ranch back in 1908. He developed the land into Westmoreland Farms and established Bellaire at the heart of the Farms to serve as the local trading center and residential neighborhood.
Years later, during the post-WWI housing boom, the young and independent city experienced a population explosion. Another boom, this time in teardowns, caused the rebuilding of most of Bellaire’s 3-bedroom bungalows into gorgeous two-story single-family homes.
Bellaire is often compared to West University, as both are considered bedroom communities to Houston. Bellaire’s average 7,000 square foot parcels are, however, bigger than West University’s 5,000 square foot average.
Bellaire townhomes and single-family homes are competitively priced as well. Properties in the area vary in sizes and styles, and prices are determined based on a number of factors like location.
