Over the past decade, Colleyville – a once mostly rural town – has seen significant development. But no matter how many new homes and developments crop up over the years, vestiges of the old Colleyville remain.
Mature trees that drape over Glade Road, large parks, plentiful trails, 11 National Blue Ribbon Schools and an abundance of excellent neighborhoods near Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport make this city a jewel among area communities.
Recently, parts of this northeast Tarrant County city are changing to create an ideal mix of homes with acreage and a burgeoning commercial district, welcoming more restaurants, offices, and homebuyers in every stage of life.
According to The Dallas Morning News data analysis – which named Colleyville the second-best place to live in North Texas for 2015 – the city is popular for empty nesters as well as families with children, ranking in the top three for both categories. The area also received high marks for safety after 2014 brought the lowest crime rate in 23 years.
On 1.64 acres of gated, landscaped grounds, the six-bedroom, 16,505-square-foot home at 5102 Montclair Drive boasts a master suite wing, elevator and guesthouse. Ready for elegant entertaining, the property has room for parking100 cars.
Among majestic oaks, 2212 Glade Road is reminiscent of 1920s Mediterranean architecture. Master craftsman Neil S. DiGiammatteo paid close attention to detail when constructing flowing spaces and inviting rooms. A motor court, lush landscaping, fountains, verandas and an incredible basement complete this single-story home.
