About the property

A Mix Of Historical And New In This 1,876 Sf Single-Level House.

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.

About Stanley

I am an independent real estate broker licensed in both Arizona and California. Having been in the profession, leasing, managing property, buying and selling as well as developing, 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 and the YMCA!

Stanley purchased this house in 1990

Why Stanley chose Phoenix

Ever since purchasing The Wilshire House in 1990, I have loved this home. It took 25 years to remodel and enlarge it to its lovely state today. The original portion of the house remains dedicated to its historic heritage while the addition is absolutely contemporary as you will see. 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!

What makes this house unique

Walk to the Phoenix Light Rail and go to so many places locally and all over The Valley of the Sun! Being geographically at the very center of Maricopa County and the greater Phoenix Metroplex is a bonus in terms of travel times. 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 the City of Phoenix, too.

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!

Felt like a vacation while on business!

  • 5 of 5

I rented the Wilshire house for a crew of 3 technicians for a week long event we were working on in Phoenix. It is located about 1.5 away from the Phoenix Convention Center and very convenient to Uber back and forth (or take the light rail).

The feedback I received from the crew was great! The home is beautiful! They really enjoyed the personal touch the homeowners added to the experience. I was told they thought of everything that they might possibly need! The location was perfect to get out and about after work hours to the local restaurants. So the crew was actually able to enjoy Phoenix on their downtime and not be stuck in a hotel. As well, the ability to have a home cooked meal when you want it and relax makes a work week go by much nicer!

Thanks for the Hospitality Stanley and Nicole!

Owner's Response: Thanks, Freda, for your kind comments. I know it was a bit of a leap of faith in that you were selecting a place for your crew to stay near a working venue. Trusting in a new spot is not easy and I understand that dilemna. Weighing cost with convenience and the potential for a place not being what was promised is tough and especially from a distance. So happy it worked out and that The Wilshire House lived up to your expectations. Nicole and I look forward to hosting any and all other groups that may be coming our way from your office! Thanks again, Frdea! Stanley and Nicole

Like a luxury hotel with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this house. There was not a single thing that was overlooked. The kitchen is much larger than the photos suggest - all new appliances and brightly lit with everything you could possibly need. The beds and linens were luxurious. We played golf every day barbecued in the evening on the brand new barbecue and sat outside and enjoyed the ambiance. Surprisingly quiet and a charming neighborhood. Our hosts were superb. We can't say enough good things about this house.

Loved It!!

  • 5 of 5

We are a local family of six who were need of some emergency housing. Stanley and Nichole were incredibly fast and helpful, getting us in on a last minute notice. The Wilshire Home has everything you could possibly need. It was a refreshing, comfortable and luxurious place to stay. They have thought of everything so you don't have to. The showers are hot, the beds, and linens are perfect, and the furnishings are comfortable and well planned. It's perfectly located in the heart of the city, the neighborhood is safe and beautiful. We would stay longer if we could! Loved it!
