TCU Area Real Estate

    Located just southwest of downtown Fort Worth, with houses ranging in price from the low to high six-figure range, the lovely and historic TCU Area truly offers something for everyone.

    Three of the most desirable neighborhoods within the esteemed TCU Area of Fort Worth are Tanglewood, Overton, and Mistletoe Heights.

    All three of the aforementioned areas overlook the Clear Fork of the Trinity River and are in close proximity to world-class museums such as the Kimball Art Museum, as well as the Fort Worth Zoo, Botanical Gardens, and Downtown Fort Worth’s treasure trove of entertainment, Sundance Square.


    As is true with all three neighborhoods, Tanglewood is served by the Fort Worth Independent School District.  One of the FWISD’s highest-ranking elementary schools bears the namesake of this inviting locale.

    Homes in this area are predominantly one-story houses with streets that bend and contour snake-like in apparent homage to the Trinity River.


    The Overton section of the TCU Area is divided into four sectors: Overton South, Overton Park, Overton West and Overton Woods.

    No matter the sub-neighborhood chosen in Overton, it is not difficult to project a future appreciation of value, especially for the more moderately priced Overton South and Overton Park communities.

    Mistletoe Heights

    Officially designated as a historic district by the City of Fort Worth in 2002, Mistletoe Heights offers a quaint neighborhood with houses well suited for leisurely front porch conversations.

    Two lovely parks provide perks that are great for children of all ages as well as adults—and both Tillery and Newby Parks are just a short stroll away.

    The TCU Area truly has enough perks for college-age students, retirement age people, or young parents seeking an education for their children from the finest schools of the FWISD.

    Young, old, or somewhere in between, now is an excellent time for an investment in TCU Area real estate.
