Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Phoenix’s Willo District is considered by many to be the most desirable of the city’s historic neighborhoods. Developed in phases starting in the early 1920s, the tract contains an abundance of well-preserved vintage homes in a wide range of period revival styles, including Craftsman, Spanish-Mediterranean, Dutch Colonial, English Tudor, and French Normandy, many of which are proudly put on display once a year during the neighborhood’s wildly popular Home Tour Weekend.
Also found in the historic district are a smattering of Pueblo Revival-style homes, one of which made quite a splash when it hit the market last week, no doubt thanks in part to its eye-catching peachy-pink exterior that evokes the famous Arizona sunset. Helping to keep interest piqued are the three-bedroom home’s arcaded driveway, and Moorish-arch picture window. Inside, more captivating period details await, including thick adobe walls, barreled ceilings, arched alcoves, original oak floors, French doors, casement windows, and built-in seating and storage.
Both of the home’s bathrooms have been updated, as has its kitchen, which features granite slab and butcher-block countertops, a copper-hued hood, and ample cabinet space. There’s also a finished basement with concrete floors.
The 7,597-square-foot property’s grounds are divided into various discrete spaces and walled courtyards. Among these are a potting/gardening area, a flagstone patio equipped with an in-ground hot tub, a built-in BBQ, a beehive fireplace, a fountain, and adobe bench seating with viga latillas for shade. There’s even an RV parking area.
Asking $735,000, the vintage charmer is listed with Christie Kinchen and Jennifer Hibbard of Twins & Co. Realty.
