Walsh Ranch Homes

One of the largest residential developments in the country is well underway now. As of Spring 2020 over 600 residents have moved into Walsh Phase I which features 587 homesites. Phase II has now begun with even more builders and choices of home types. The development is being built on the historic acreage of The Walsh Ranch, but the developer has chosen to call the community “Walsh” differentiating it from a residential community in Roundrock Texas that is marketed under the “Walsh Ranch” name.

No doubt locals will continue to refer to the North Texas development as “Walsh Ranch” for the foreseeable future but as the community grows the new “Walsh” name will slowly enter the vocabulary of both real estate brokers and residents. Located on 7,200 acres in west Fort Worth, Walsh will ultimately to be home to 50,000 residents in as many as 18,000 new homes. Home prices will begin at $300,000.

F. Howard Walsh III, whose family has owned the land since the 1930’s  named Republic Property Group (RPG) as the developer of the project and intensive construction on infrastructure has been going on for over 2 years. The developer was chosen specifically by the Walsh family because of their success over the past 50 years with large scale residential developments.

The former Walsh Ranch is ideal for large-scale development because it is the biggest contiguous tract of land in the country within 10 minutes of a major central business district. In 2018 Fort Worth was the fastest growing U.S. City with a population of over 500,000. Residents for these homes will be in plentiful supply as the population grows by over 200,000 in the next few years. The Walsh development lies in both Parker and Tarrant County with all homes zoned for the acclaimed Aledo ISD.
