A Charming 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 protected cul-de-sac while the wood-ceilinged covered rear patio with new gas bar-b-que gets the southern sun. Plenty of parking (guests need to use the City street passes, which are on site, during weekday work hours) and virtually no traffic on Wilshire Drive in front of the house. Four flat screens TVs premium cable channels, and high-speed wireless internet included as well as land line telephone with free domestic long distance calling.

Stanley purchased this House in 1990
Why Stanley chose Willo
Ever since purchasing The Wilshire House in 1990, I have loved this home. It took 25 years for my daughter Nicole and me to remodel and enlarge it to its lovely condition 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
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. Walk to the Phoenix Light Rail (The Heard stop) on Central Avenue and travel all over The Valley of the Sun! 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!

Wilshire House was lovely. We couldn’t have asked for more. Nicole and Stan are gracious hosts. They don’t miss a detail.
Thank you, Karrie! It is guests like your party that make hosting a satisfying experience. We would love to see you, friends, and/or family anytime possible in the future! Thanks again for trusting us to come and stay this past weekend....
Take care and safe travels....

Personal touches make all the difference!
The Wilshire House is truly a gem with those personal touches that make such a difference; from the moment you walk in you know that Stanley & Nicole want you to feel at home. From the helpful notes, to the bikes on the patio, to the extra toothbrushes, they thought of everything. The house is so tastefully furnished with an easy flow that just invites you to relax. Stanley and Nicole were great to work with too! I have found my “go-to-spot” in Phoenix!
What a delight, Therese, to have you stay in The Wilshire House! We feel so fortunate to have guests like you and your party come to Phoenix and choose TWH as their “spot” from which to conduct their activities when visiting. Your comments were so very kind and we want you to know how much we appreciate when guests feel that we have made a home for them away from their own. Thank you again and it is our hope that we can again host you and your family and friends at The Wilshire House!
Beautiful house in a quiet and central Phoenix location
Stanley and Nicole have provided a very comfortable home away from home. The house is beautifully decorated and very well equipped. The neighborhood is very central yet quiet and charming. Communication was excellent.
Nicole and I continue to be very fortunate in hosting wonderful and considerate quests at The Wilshire House here in Phoenix. Here's hoping that many more people are able to share the same experiences that Claire and her party di this past week!
Stanley and Nicole
