In the Desert Southwest, Adobe construction seems ubiquitous with indigenous architecture, yet anyone who’s looked for an authentic Adobe home in Phoenix knows just what a rare find one can be. This lovely home in the Historic Phoenix Homesteads Neighborhood is a great example of just what this neighborhood has to offer: Location, history, condition and affordability.
Many of these Adobe homes are attributed to Architect Robert Evans. This home, rebuilt to today, (preserving much of the Adobe with some block additions) yet retaining all it’s original charm, has been thoughtfully and carefully updated to include three bedrooms (one now as den), two baths, central air-conditioning (hard to find in the Homestead originals), all on the large irrigated lot that make this neighborhood one of the most charming and picturesque in town.
Most of the original cabinets have been maintained and restored, as were the wood beam vigas. Tiled throughout, the home has been updated with high-quality wood framed windows and the interior is perfectly light balanced with the addition of a row of clerestory windows along the center ridge.
Along with the mature trees (citrus, cottonwood and more), the property includes the original Adobe outbuilding/carport, which proudly showcases the hand made adobes, still viable and functional, decades later.
These homes were built to be efficient and affordable to own, this still rings true with this home. It offers a perfect size to maintain, heat and cool, Historic Neighborhood Tax structure; and the irrigated lot makes for a PERFECT vegetable garden. Install a Solar Array and get off the grid right in town!
This Neighborhood has a very unique history, most of these homes offer near-perfect scale and balance of proportion. Many of these structures were designed by Architect Robert Evans.
