Heading Back to the Future

As I’ve mentioned many times before, Phoenix really doesn’t do historical. Phoenix also doesn’t do more than two styles of architecture – light stucco and dark stucco.

Throwing out those generalities, there are beautiful exceptions to be found in the city’s historic districts, such as this beautifully renovated an updated house in the Coronado Historic District.

I’d tell you more here but, quite frankly, I was here with a buyer this morning and she’s interested in the home. What I can tell you is this is but one of several historic homes for sale at this very moment here in Phoenix.

Not all were built in 1929 like this one. (And can you imagine the conversation around the dinner table about the real estate market and the economy after it was built and purchased? Must have made what happened for many of us in 2006 sound like planning a trip to Disneyland.)

No, they may not all date back to the Hoover administration but they all have character. And many have had the modern conveniences we enjoy now – wood or tiled floors, granite counters, beautiful fixtures.

Prices start in the low to mid-$100s for the better of these properties and move up from there, most often depending on which historic district the home happens to be located within.

For more information on this home, should my buyer decide to take a pass, or others in the area, drop Tobey and I a line and we’ll be happy to help.

    I’ve passed by this house before. The street it’s on has some of the best kept homes from the 1920s!
