I am fully aware of how wonderful Las Colinas is. On that note, are there other nice areas of Irving to live? Las Colinas is a lot of money to rent or buy in. I want a safe neighborhood. Not necessarily upscale. BTW: Kids may be attending Wesleyan academe which I've heard is good. That area is not where I want to live. Somewhere between that area and Las Colinas would be great for renting. I really want to be safe.

If anyone can shoot off other addresses/areas, that would be awesome. Thanks.

Smile Areas in Irving

Valley Ranch is a nice area. I was just there last week looking at some homes. You can find some good values there to buy as well as rent.

One of my favorite neighborhoods in all of irving is the hospital district ( hosptial district dot org ) The area has beautiful homes on large tree covered lots. Most homes sell from $150,000-$250,000 and it's in the 75061 zip code.

I agree. The homes in this area are well-built custom homes dating from the late 1960's to early 1970's (generally). The area has always been a stable one, as well. The hospital district straddles MacArthur Blvd., just south of Airport Fwy. (Hwy. 183). Other than the various neighborhoods in Las Colinas or immediately adjacent, that's the only other area I'd recommend in Irving. I grew up in Irving (Las Colinas), BTW, but don't live there anymore.

There are beautiful houses in Irving and am kind of dissappointed that there are not many good areas. I found a beautiful house with a pool, brick archways and lots of granite inside and beautiful landscaping, but it is just north of Irving Mall. It was built in the early 80s. It is beautiful on MLS and hubby said this would be like his dream home with lots of granite, etc for entertaining. I find it hard to believe that this exclusive looking of a house can be in a not so great neighborhood. That is too bad. It would be a great house that we could live in for a long time if we were to buy it. IT is also close to Wesleyan Academy where the kiddos will be going.

Is it really that bad of an area? Perfect location if we were to buy. It's been on the market a long time by the looks of MLS numbers.

The area north of Irving Mall is full of aging homes and hundreds of apartments, most of which are in decline. The Beltline Road corridor is getting sort of run down. There is a pocket or two of nice homes in that area but they're surrounded by apartment complexes. LOTS of apartments.

Catluvor - can you post the address of the Irving house so we can look it up? Maybe we can figure out what's up with it.

Use a PM for this. Some realtors could view an address as trying to circument the no advertising clause of the Terms of Service.

Not sure how to post a PM or what it is, but I will send you the address in your mailbox. Maybe you can assist me. We really like this house. We got a purchase agreement today, but have to wait 30 days for closing.
