Bellaire - The City Within a City

Established in 1911, Bellaire is a small, incorporated city in the heart of the Houston metropolis. Known as the "City of Homes," Bellaire features a wide range of home styles from small two-bedroom bungalows priced under $100,000 to estate-style homes selling for up to a million dollars.

When W.W. Baldwin bought 9,700 acres of the DeMoss Ranch in 1909, little did he think that this pastoral area would grow to become a booming residential area. Bellaire was incorporated as a city in 1918 and the following year boasted 25 homes. The growth continued; Bellaire adopted zoning ordinances in 1939 and the boom exploded; by 1960 there were over 6,000 homes.

Two decades later, the increased desire for close-in living inspired builders and developers to replace Bellaire’s small bungalows with two-story homes large enough to accommodate growing families and at-home entertaining lifestyles. The city’s strong zoning requirements and deed restrictions serve to maintain the Bellaire tradition of quality.

Today, Bellaire offers excellent schools including one of the nation’s top institutions, Bellaire High School.Lush parks, a variety of recreational opportunities and excellent libraries add to the sense of community.Houston’s Loop 610, adjacent to Bellaire, provides immediate access to the city’s freeway system.

Newcomers and native Houstonians alike appreciate the amenities of this delightful city within a city.
