Some call it Delwood (or Delwood I, to distinguish it from the other Delwood across the street), and it’s also part of Cherrywood. We call it Wilshire Wood, which sounds fancier and kind of old-school. Whatever the case, this home is located in the there, in the multinamed, leafy neighborhood that runs along I-35 approximately between East 38-1/2 Street and Airport Boulevard.
Built in 1941, the house has been updated but retains some period features, including its stacked-rock exterior, hardwood floors, extra-large windows, fireplace, sunroom, kitchen cabinets, and a few nifty pieces of decorative/functional ironwork on the exterior. At 2,002 square feet, it has four bedrooms and four bathrooms.
As alluded to above, it’s also extremely conveniently located, both via car (being near major commuter arteries) and foot; it’s walkable to Patterson Park—with a pool, tennis courts, playgrounds, and skate park) and in theory (if not a short drive or bike) to Mueller shopping, services, and restaurants.
The home certainly doesn’t lack character or color, in common areas and bedrooms.
Things get a little more unusual behind the house, where there’s both a truly odd but functional-looking guest house and a sort of walled firepit (which could keep things cozy and also protect visitors against attack from behind).
