Morrisdale Estates is located in Euless, Texas, at the corners of the mid-cities Hurst, Euless and Bedford. Morrisdale, as it's often called, was always and is still a premier Euless neighborhood. Construction of homes in Morrisdale Estates began in 1961 and continued until the early 1970s, and was developed by Paul Huffhines and the Morrisdale Development Corporation.
Morrisdale was planned from the start to be a first-rate community. The original developer chose to leave the neighborhood's rolling hills and many native Post Oaks as undisturbed as possible. Lots were plotted large — a minimum of 100 feet — and homes just as large, at a minimum of 2,400 square feet. The developer's orginal idea was to build homes that were "planned for gracious living with a distinctive address," with room to live and play. The developer's original brochure was preserved by orginal homeowners and describes the home planning for the neighborhood.
The idea was to build a community that was not your average "tract-development" neighborhood, but to build homes that were different in design and landscaping. A feeling of uniqueness in each home was important and still is today, as Morrisdale residents take pride in their homes and landscapes, making each as distinct and different as the residents who live here.
Today, a mix of original homeowners present from the early 1960s and new residents creates an atmosphere of a neighborhood unlike most, where neighbors not only know who lives next door, but know just about everyone in the neighborhood.
A voluntary neighborhood association celebrates the uniqueness of the neigborhood and promotes friendly interaction between residents. This special relationship between neighbors is one of the things that makes Morrisdale so great. Most Morrisdale residents breathe a sigh of relief and comfort as soon as they turn into the neighborhood – to the place they call home.
