San Antonio Neighborhoods, Old and New - Part 10: Hollywood Park

My home, Hollywood Park

I've saved my home, Hollywood Park, for the 10th and last subdivision in my series on "San Antonio Neighborhoods, Old and New".  We have lived in Hollywood Park since 1995, and have sold over 85 Hollywood Park homes.  While Steve and I sell real estate all over the San Antonio area, we specialize in  Hollywood Park, called one of the "Top 100 Best Places to Raise Your Family" in the US!  The friendly small town atmosphere, and nice blend of "old-timers" and young families make Hollywood Park an ideal place to live.  Having on-site police and fire departments and a low crime rate are an added bonus.

The Town of Hollywood Park was incorporated December 7, 1955, and is a quiet, suburban community located in the north-central San Antonio area, just inside Loop 1604, at the Highway 281 interchange. It is bound by Loop 1604 to the north, Mecca Drive to the south, Blanco Road to the west and San Pedro Avenue to the east.   Hollywood Park is a diverse mix of residents, including businessmen, young families and retirees.  Some of the hallmarks of Hollywood Park include quiet streets, oak trees, deer,  and large family homes with large lots.  Currently there are approximately 3000 residents in about 1300 homes.

Hollywood Park was originally a rural community that has seen a steady increase in population because of its close proximity to San Antonio.  Hollywood Park still offers quiet, country living with the conveniences of the city nearby. This township is a popular choice for families looking for a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.  Hollywood Park real estate consists mainly of single family homes with a nice mix of architecture and builders sitting on ½ to 1 acre lots.

Two garden home areas, the Gardens of Hollywood Park, and the Enclave of Hollywood Park, were developed in the last 20 years, and provide alternatives to buyers who want the neighborhood amenities without the responsibilites of maintaining a large residential lot.

Hollywood Park Real Estate....

Currently there are over 25 homes on the market in Hollywood Park, ranging from the high $190's to over $400K.  In the last 12 months, sales have remained strong with 43 closed sales.  Prices vary greatly according to age of home, lot size, condition of the home and location within the Park.  Sales ranged from $158,000 to $500,000, and from $65 to $155 per square foot.  Sold homes were from approximately 1600 square feet to 5000 square feet, and were from 55 years old to new construction.

Life in Hollywood Park...
There is an active voluntary HOA that puts on activities for Hollywood Park residents, like the annual 4th of July Parade and Picnic, the annual Halloween Party, special beginning and end of school Free Swim nights at the township's pool, and an annual Tamalada dinner honoring residents who are new to the neighborhood.  Also available are opportunities to participate in the Woman's Club, Garden Club, Swim Team, and many other fine organizations that bring residents together to make Hollywood Park an outstanding place to live!
