NEIGHBORHOOD SUMMARY:

Surrounding the country club of the same name, Colonial consists of large lots with mature trees flanking winding streets. The scenic neighborhood, that plays host to the Dean and Deluca Invitational each year, benefits from close proximity to TCU and the Trinity River. Homeowners who buy here often stay put — a drive through the area will reveal many homes adding on, remodeling and “popping the top.” That’s partially thanks to Tanglewood Elementary, which is consistently recognized for academic excellence. Michael Duwe, owner of Restoration Homes, has worked on many homes in the area and says the trend is also thanks to the area’s architecture.

“Colonial homes have great character. Good architecture, like what you see in Colonial, can give you a leg up, and the value of the renovation can live up to the cost.”
