History Loves Character

West Side Clark Addition is located immediately west of the original town site of Mesa and was platted between 1930 and 1947 when Joseph and Mary Clark developed some of their farm property along Clark Street. Therein lies this gorgeous little historic gem that is known as “The Flannery House”.

This top to bottom remodel is not only unique but perfectly compliments the preserved historic look and charm that sets this home apart from every other home in the Valley. Lush green grass and a long brick walkway adorn the entry to the classic front porch with rustic metal accents and flower boxes. Double RV gates lead to the 1.5 car garage (it might even be bigger) and HUGE, grassy back yard with oversized back porch.

The kitchen is any chefs dream with gorgeous white cabinets, apron sink, stainless appliances and geometric backsplash. There are gorgeous REAL wood floors throughout with the exception of perfectly placed “wood look” tile in the bathroom and kitchen. Classic subway tiles in the bathroom with penny tile accents. Plenty of storage in this historic home with a large closet in the guest room and plenty of built-ins in the master. There’s a convenient, larger indoor laundry and that is also an upgrade!

The neighborhood has been in the news lately. The District was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 2010 but, in August 2017, the Mesa City Council approved a zoning overlay that will offer homeowners property-tax breaks! Close to Sky Harbor, The Beeline, the 60, the 202 AND the 101. Within walking distance of the amenities of Downtown which include many award winning restaurants, the light rail, the Mesa Arts Center, and many other boutiques.

Rent this Historic Downtown Beauty within 1/4 mile of the Light Rail!

The origin of this spanish-style, energy efficient home dates back to 1880 when the first structure, just the living room and kitchen, was built. It wasn’t until 1915 that the house was completed. Back in 1915, Woodrow Wilson was president, the Ford Model T was only a few years old, the population of Mesa, AZ was under 3,000 and 1st Avenue was a dirt road.

Privacy abounds with mature and lush trees and bushes (one is 100+ years old!), fully fenced with automatic gates to the covered parking area and even a gated front entrance. It’s the convenience of a bustling Downtown with the peace of a zen-like retreat.

418 N Robson Mesa, AZ 85201 Virtual Walk Through Tour

Hello world, I’m 418 N Robson and I’ve been around for a long, long time. I remember the big flood of 1946, when “Pepper Square” was a Greyhound Bus Depot and when the Majestic was still a theater. A lot of me is still original however my current family loved me enough to add additional space and I went from a 900sqft home to a 2600sqft. They have been with me for over 13 years and have loved me every second I am very sad to see them go but their family has finally outgrown me. Some think that my lot location is not ideal and that it might be bothersome because University is so much bigger now than it ever used to be but there is soooo much space in between and I’m further north than most people think. My family will be the first to tell you that the location has never been an issue and you cannot hear traffic at night while you are sleeping or from the kitchen while making dinner. My enormous lot has given my family lots of space to play and entertain. My character, history, functionality and charm is ready for another and I can’t wait to make new memories with a new family that will love me just as much. Is that you?

264 W. 2Nd St. Mesa, AZ 85201

This is it! That perfect blend of history, charm, and location. Mesa’s very own Robson Historic District has quite the significant history! Also known as Pomeroy Place, this neighborhood was platted by Frank T. and S. Dora Pomeroy, early Mesa pioneers. West 2nd Street district, the neighborhood to the East, was home to the most prominent middle to upper class families in the early 1900’s and, because of that, 2nd Street itself was often called, ”Millionaire Row”. On a street with tree lined medians (one of the very few tree lined medians in Mesa), 100 year old trees, and neighbors that have passed their homes from generation to generation lies this gem built in 1936.

The charm begins at the curb and doesn’t stop! The incredible refinished “real” hardwood floors, along with original kitchen and bathroom create the perfect look and feel that you would expect from a historic community.

The oversized lot has a very cool and very old 2 story detached building that has quite a history and offers versatility. The commercial / residential zoning makes it easy to run a business out of this location or make it a great Airbnb rental or primary residence.

This is a walk-able community! The police station is at the end of the street on Robson which is sure to keep things nice and quiet in the neighborhood. On your walk you can visit the “secret garden”, the “hanging tree”, 3 different museums, the MAC (world-renowned arts center), the Mesa Farmers Market (every Friday from 8am to 12pm), and a variety of eclectic shops and restaurants. While you are at it, grab a ride to Tempe or Phoenix on the train but don’t forget to stop at Inside the Bungalow first for an amazing cup of joe. Say hello to Betty for me!
