Property description

Charming home built in 1929 completely remodeled, enlarged, and decorated in 2015 with all new furniture, appliances , windows, hard scape, and landscaping. This house can accommodate 8 people with the Master Suite, The Queen Room, the Twin Room, and two leather sleeper couches. A large wraparound front patio faces the cul-de-sac while the covered rear patio with new gas bar-b-que gets the southern sun. Plenty of parking (guests need to use the City street passes during weekday work hours which are on site) and virtually no traffic on Wilshire Drive in front of the house. Four flat screens TVs and wireless internet included.

Phoenix's Light Rail is a five-minute walk away and then you can ride downtown to the US Airways Arena, the Chase Bank ballfield, ASU's downtown campus (or event ride to the Tempe campus), northward is the emerging chic and hip Uptown with all its new restaurants. Sky Harbor International Airport is 15 minutes away and the freeway system only five minutes south.

The Wilshire House is smack dab in the middle of Greater Phoenix and accessible to the ballparks, the Phoenix Zoo, Phoenix Botanical Gardens, scores of local golf courses, entertainment venues, and of course Paradise Valley and Scottsdale.

Perfect for business trips with the family, weekend getaways, short term job contracts, or getting away for a long weekend. THERE IS NO GARAGE but plenty of parking in the long driveway and on the street. City passes, which are supplied by owner, for weekday business hours required.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: I am an independent real estate broker licensed in both Arizona and California. Having been in the profession for over thirty five years, I very much enjoy the challenge of working with people and properties. My hobbies include reading, golf, and traveling and I also teach spinning at LA FItness

Why the Owner Chose Wilshire Place, Phoenix, AZ, USA:
I have loved this house since purchasing it in 1990 and it took 25 years to remodel and enlarge it to the lovely home it is today. Sharing Greater Phoenix and the historic Willo Neighborhood in Central Phoenix is a treat for me and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walk to the Light Rail and go to so many places locally and all over The Valley of the Sun! This blend of historic home and new addition is bound to please. Phoenix has a new rent-a bicycle program too with stations nearby! Please take a look at everything that is all around this locale and the convenience of being literally in the heart of Phoenix, AZ. See the saved url's for best restaurants, light rail, and the Grid Bike program. THere is so much to see and do in Greater Phoenix and The Wilshire House is in the middle of it all - literally!
