About Wilshire Wood
Wilshire Wood/Delwood I might be the ideal place for you to consider for your next home purchase if large, tree-shaded lots, vintage ranch-style homes and a close-in central location appeal to you. Tucked into the northern part of the 78722 zip code triangle, this rather small area was developed from 1941 to 1950 by former Texas Land Commissioner, Bascomb Giles, and was billed as the Tarrytown of the East Side.
Beauty of Wilshire Wood
With beautiful winding streets, spacious homes, a mix of wood-framed and native limestone built construction, these homes boast three- and four-bedrooms, two baths, often a second living area, and range in area from 1,500 to 3,000 square feet. You’ll love the charming street names like Ardenwood, Crestwood and Lullwood. And there’s no doubt where you are as you follow the neighborhood creek, Willowbrook Reach, as it winds its way through the neighborhood. The historic area once was the site of peach orchards and dairy farms, and the 1870 Wright home still stands in the heart of the area on the grounds of a local church.
Wilshire Woods Neighbor
The adjoining Delwood I area homes are also within the 78722 zip code and are located just north of Airport Boulevard. Many homes are built of the Mexican cinder block stone that is also prevalent in the nearby Giles Place addition in nearby Cherrywood. These homes are slightly smaller in size, but are conveniently located for shopping and access to downtown. And you’ll appreciate the value and location while enjoying Central East Austin living at its best!
