1916 Craftsman Bungalow in Mesa

Around the time when only 8% of households had a phone and the cost of a stamp was $0.02 this perfectly appointed two story 1916 Craftsman Bungalow style home was built on a spacious 1/2 acre lot. Featuring a new metal roof, gated parking, a private driveway and room enough for a workshop, garage, guest house or RV Garage. The formal entry opens from the L-shaped covered front porch with arched openings to the formal living room boasting glass french doors, fireplace, original built-in book case and decorative molding. The formal dining room features an original built-in china cabinet with stained glass, plenty of natural light and views of the large, charming covered porch and large front yard.

The first level has original hardwood flooring and double hung windows throughout with 2 bedrooms, one full bathroom and a full, galley kitchen with gas range, original cabinets and white and green tile. There is a one room basement and “summer kitchen” with sink.

The second level offers three bedrooms, one bathroom, a sleeping porch and a full eat-in kitchen. This space is perfect for a larger family or additional rental income. The charming front dormer bedroom with vaulted ceilings has just been painted and has original built-ins and a window seat.

This home has had only three owners in the last 104 years. It’s the last home standing on a street that had four homes in a row that were built alike around the same time.

Back in those earlier years Mesa began purchasing utilities from Dr. AJ Chandler and installed our very first sanitary sewer system. Mesa was a bustling metropolis then and it is now. Many new businesses have emerged like Cider Corps, Mezona Market and Worth Takeaway and old favorites like The Blue Adobe, Mangos and Nuthaporns still remain after all these years. Enjoy this one-of-a-kind home located minutes from a bustling downtown full of arts, music and a delicious variety of local fare.

This is a popular location for vacation rentals especially during spring training and, with the light rail within a mile and its central location, it’s also very popular for long term tenants too. Turn your investment into cash flow right away with this turn-key opportunity.

SECRET Historic Homes for sale in the Mesa Historic District

YES, that’s right!  We’ve been at this awhile, Alex and I at Team Evolution Real Estate.  We are passionate about the historic districts and the surrounding areas of Downtown Mesa.  We’ve been diligently working on our goal to increase the values in the area for our neighbors not only because it’s what we do but because it’s in our best interest as a historic property owner.  It’s our neighborhood too!

Because of our work many of the neighbors call upon us for remodeling advice, advice to prepare to sell a historic home (there are many things to consider that you don’t need to consider with a regular resale home), advice on value (we are doing our best to help our neighbors realize their homes true value and prevent them from accepting very low ball offers) and pre-marketing their home to our vast pool of buyers.

Here is our list of upcoming historic listings.  These homes are not listed on Zillow or the MLS.  There are two on the list and we have another that we are expecting to list in March or April that is not on the list.

Call or text Katie at 480-250-0023 for more information on the area, home values and our upcoming listings.
