Bella Vista, Arkansas is a planned recreational community created by visionary John Cooper. Bella Vista as a residential community was started in 1965 and today boasts a population of nearly 17,000 residents. Because of it's lovely golf courses, terrific fishing opportunities, and active lifestyle, Bella Vista has long been a favorite destination for retirees young at heart. However, because of it's close proximity to Bentonville (home of Wal-Mart), it's also a wonderful community for anyone wanting a lovely home and active lifestyle!
Bella Vista is tucked into the Northwest Arkansas Ozark hills, affording many spectacular views. Extensive hardwood forests (primarily Oak/Hickory) weave through the neighborhoods as "common ground", providing space and privacy to homeowners as well as shelter to large populations of wild deer, turkey, squirrels, birds, and other native animal species. A drive around Bella Vista displays the careful consideration the natural environment and geography has been given in the planning and implementation of this lovely community.
Housing in Bella Vista is primarily single family residential . You won't find carbon copy homes in this planned development, however. The unique geographic location of Bella Vista has given rise to a large assortment of architecturally unique homes in all price ranges, giving Bella Vista a character rarely found in planned developments, most surrounded by trees on nice size lots!
Besides single family resident housing, attractive townhouses dot the landscapes, especially around the golf courses, where maintenance free living can leave residents free to enjoy the many recreational opportunities to be found in and around Bella Vista.
