Colleyville, TXHomes for Sale and Neighborhoods
Named for Dr. Lilburn Howard Colley, who moved from Missouri to the area to practice in 1880, Colleyville was officially incorporated in 1956. What was once a farming community has since grown into a suburban oasis of plentiful neighborhoods with spacious lots and lush lawns. While a multitude of businesses thrive along Highway 26, Colleyville is overwhelmingly residential and is quite popular among those who wish to live in a more laid-back environment while remaining close to all that the DFW area has to offer.
Cost of Living
Colleyville is a relatively expensive place to call home, due to its popularity and proximity to the rest of the Metroplex. While the median home price in Colleyville is well above that of the state and the country, other costs of living such as transportation, groceries, and healthcare are near or below national and state averages.
Highway 26, also known as Grapevine Highway, runs through the center of Colleyville, allowing residents convenient access to downtown Fort Worth. The Texas Eagle Amtrak line makes stops in Dallas and Fort Worth, and DFW International Airport is less than 10 miles away. While most residents rely on their vehicles to get around the area, the Dallas Area Rapid Transit system is a great way to get around the Metroplex without getting behind the wheel.
Colleyville is served by Grapevine-Colleyville Independent School District, which is comprised of 11 elementary schools, four middle schools, and three high schools. The area also has plenty of preschool and private school options available.
Grapevine Lake is a short drive away from Colleyville, and Colleyville itself is home to a dozen parks with trails, fishing ponds, and sport courts for residents to enjoy some outdoor recreation. Local eateries such as the Luna Grill and the Black Walnut Cafe are popular among locals, and Hall’s Pumpkin Farm and Corn Maze is a great place for the whole family to have some fun. With all that Colleyville has to offer, it’s no wonder residents love calling it home.
