Northwood is a wonderful, centrally located neighborhood. Most of the homes date back to the 1950s and 1960s -- one-story ranch style homes. There are two school districts serving the neighborhood: Northeast ISD and the Alamo Heights ISD. Those homes in NEISD offer a great central location without the heavy price tag usually associated with the 78209 zip code.
Most homes in Northwood offer 3-4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Living in this area entitles you to automatic membership in the Oak Park/Northwood Homeowner's Association. Membership is automatic, but dues are voluntary, suggested at $15 per year. Every month, the board of directors meets and they also hold regular meetings with city council members and the mayor. Additionally, there are two general membership meetings held for all residents of Oak Park/Northwood. Among the many fun events organized to foster social interaction is the annual 4th of July parade.
Northwood is close to Fort Sam, BAMC, Loop 410 and the I-35 corridor. Great shopping and restaurants are near. Just across Harry Wurzbach is Oakwell Farms and Tobin Park, with its hiking and biking trails. You also have the Tobin Library at Oakwell Farms, a lovely neighborhood branch of the San Antonio Public Library. At the edge of Oakwell Farms is Crumpets Restaurant. Crumpets has been offering fine continental cuisine since 1980 and offers a beautiful setting to enjoy great food and live music.
Just down south on Harry Wurzbach (on your way to Fort Sam) at the corner of Rittiman Road is a newly re-furbished shopping center that includes a new location of San Antonio's legendary Teka Molino. Teka Molino offers Tex-Mex at is finest -- and fried-est. Yum!
Next door to Teka, is one of my favorite bakeries -- Le Cake. Le Cake's cakes aren't just gorgeous, they are delicious too. My children always request unique cake designs and Le Cake always delivers -- deliciously!
Just a short drive southwest from Northwood and you are at the Austin Highway and the shopping it has to offer including Lowe's, Target, Petco, and more.
