Killeen Real Estate
Real estate in Killeen offers a wide range of large, affordable homes displaying an eclectic mix of new-traditional aesthetic details and an impressive range of interior luxury.

First time buyers, or those looking for investment properties with excellent value, can pick up one of the many minimal one-stories on offer in Killeen. These homes are usually below 1000 square feet, with spacious yards and updated interiors.
Quite a few late 20th-century homes can also be found in Killeen. These units in stucco and brick are usually constructed in one-story, bi-level, or ranch configurations. Interiors often feature custom cabinet and brickwork. Fireplaces are also common, as are established trees, decks, and pool areas perfect for entertaining friends and family. The majority of these properties will range from 1500 to 2500 square feet.
Moving into the upper reaches of Killeen's property market, constructions from the year 2000 onward gravitate towards one of two broad styles. The first are Colonial-inspired properties with prominent forward facing gables, wide front porches, and exterior shutters. These homes also tend to lean more heavily on clapboard siding for exterior surfaces, compared to the brick and stone of the next style.
The second style for larger homes in Killeen draws inspiration from various old-world trends, like French eclecticism or Italianate architecture. These homes often display tall entry arches, quoins and voussoir accents, as well as grand Palladian windows.
In all cases, these homes boast large driveways leading to expansive garage openings. Often with more than 2500 square feet to work with, interiors open into open concept living spaces under tall ceilings, luxury bathrooms, and ample flex spaces.
Other interior details for these homes are hardwood floors transitioning to plush carpets in the bedrooms, kitchen islands and integrated stainless steel ranges, granite counters, and large soaking tubs.
