Welcome to the Evergreen Historic District! Platted in 1910 by Edwin M. LeBaron and James Miller, Jr., this charming, tree-lined neighborhood is quiet yet tightly knit. The strong sense of community and love for its history is felt just by driving through. Finding a home with absolutely everything to offer isn’t always easy especially in such a unique area where most of the homes were built between 1910 and 1948. This home, spacious and comfortable with all the fixings, is THAT opportunity! This home offers a privately gated entrance, a two car garage with fresh epoxy, an inside laundry, 3 bed/2bath main house, a DIVING pebble tec pool, a GUEST house with covered patio and covered storage area, a double RV gate AND RV Parking!
Attention urban farmers, artists, musicians and history buffs! Retro exposed brick with French country industrial decor meets convenience with this fully remodeled, Evergreen historic beaut! Never before has this particular property been offered and never before has it looked quite like this. It’s love at first sight upon entry as you are welcomed by the soaring ceilings (not common in the historic districts) and the ”wall of glass” exit to the back patio and built in BBQ area. Fall further in love as you admire the silver wood flooring, accent walls and custom paint throughout, 2 fully remodeled bathrooms, fresh carpet in all 4 bedrooms (it’s so cozy!), exposed brick throughout, and updated hardware and fixtures.
Enter into the kitchen and you will be head over heels! The entire ceiling has been opened up with windows added to let in all of the natural light, French country style white cabinets with matching granite counters, new stainless appliances, walk-in pantry, distressed “wood” flooring (it’s really tile!), and coal black exposed ducts complete the look and feel of this kitchen that is fit for a chef of any caliber.
Let’s head outside to the built-in BBQ and covered patio area! Hours upon hours of enjoyment is to be had with this large, open, grassy yard…perfect for entertaining friends and family! There’s room for your flag football or family baseball game without disturbing the back yard chickens, the citrus trees, or the sprawling (fenced) urban garden. The chicken coop and irrigation is set up and ready to go!
Do you need a cool area for food storage or an insulated, detached building for the band to practice, an art studio, or just a KILLER wine room? This property has that too!! Detached “basement” out building with not one but TWO walk-in freezer / refrigerators. There is just so much potential with this building alone!
But wait, there’s more! We haven’t even talked about the “granny flat”, the separate laundry room, or the detached workshop! YES! This property has that too!! The “granny flat” or guest house has a full kitchen and bathroom! It even has a it’s own mail box so it is perfect to rent out to help pay the mortgage (ask Katie Lambert if you need a tenant…she has a list of them just waiting for a guest house to rent). The laundry room is the perfect set up for a tenant in the guest house…they can still use the (air conditioned) facilities without disturbing anyone in the main house!
As if all that wasn’t enough…this historic beaut is located within the Evergreen historic district boundaries where wide, quiet tree lined streets and friendly, family-like neighbors (some of which have lived there for decades), and the art & self-sustainable friendly community that surrounds makes you ask yourself…”Am I still in Arizona?”.
If you are new to the Evergreen historic district and the Downtown Mesa area be sure to do your homework on what is up and coming. The very tight knit group of neighbors, local business owners, and music and arts community strive daily to create the unique atmosphere that is Downtown Mesa. Aside from the grass roots sense of community enjoy modern conveniences such as the light rail (ditch the car… You won’t need it anymore), plenty of award winning restaurants, eclectic shops, MCC, Benedictine College, Wilkes College, and coming soon…ASU.
