Charmingly nicknamed the “City of Homes,” Bellaire, Texas, is a sleepy yet picturesque suburb of Houston. Bellaire is filled with vibrant coffee shops, quaint shops, expansive parks and quiet restaurants, and their schools are ranked highly. First incorporated in 1918, Bellaire had a slow start with a population of just over 1,000 in the 1940s. However, after World War II, the building boom led to rapid growth, and today, the still-growing city is home to nearly 20,000 people. Design Tech Home is proud to offer a wide range of floor plans and customizable options so that you can build your dream home in your dream town.
