The home currently for sale at 127 Avenida Del Sol in Hollywood Park is a three bedroom, two bath, two car garage (PLUS a two car carport!) home that is on a beautiful treed .48 acre corner lot.  This ranch style home has been lovingly maintained, decorated and updated.

Hollywood Park, the One in San Antonio!

My neighborhood, Hollywood Park in San Antonio, Tx. was incorporated as a township in 1955.  Located about four miles north of what was later to be called Loop 410, the township was a rural suburb miles "out in the country".  Original residents tell me that they used to carpool to the nearest grocery store back "in town", and had to have party line telephones when the area was first developed.  The original lots were selling for $3000, unless you wanted a lot with bluff views, and that was a costly $6,000 per lot. 
Home prices now range from just below $200,000 up to over $500,000.  There are approximately 1300 homes, and about 3,000 residents who call Hollywood Park home.  Most of the homes are located on treed lots that average 1/2 acre in size.  A few of the lots are as large as 1 acre, and there are two garden home areas within the Park with homes on smaller lots.

One of the best parts of living in Hollywood Park is the fine police and fire departments located within Hollywood Park.  If you need help, help is only minutes away. 

The Hollywood Park neighborhood has a voluntary Homeowner's Association, that actively promotes family oriented events throughout the year.  Coming this Saturday, October 31st, is the annual Halloween Party, from 6 to 9 pm. at the Voigt Center, our neighborhood's pool, playground, tennis and clubhouse area.
