Welcome to one of the most highly sought after homes in the Evergreen Historic District of Mesa. There truly is no home in the Valley of the Sun that is quite like this one. The home has been the stage of many TV commercials and professional photo shoots for a variety of uses and media. Step inside and you’ll see why… The wide, treelined streets, the gathering of an eclectic variety of bungalow homes, and the quaint, tight knit community of neighbors complete the feel of times past while incorporating the convenience and amenities that a modern family requires. Built by a medical doctor in 1904/1905 when Arizona was still just a territory, the home has been renovated since yet special attention was paid to restore some of the original qualities of the home.
The original wood flooring in the formal living room still exists today as do original windows, moldings, and built-ins. With nearly 3700 square feet of living space that includes a formal living room, family room, formal dining room, and HUGE bonus / game room, you can rest assured that there is room for the entire family to gather for holidays, celebrations, and visits. The historic warmth of the home is so inviting and comfortable that you may have to actually ask guests to leave when it’s time to turn in for the evening!
The remodeled gourmet kitchen boasts gas cook stove, built in refrigerator, stainless appliances, contrasting color two tone cabinets, built-in refrigerator, apron sink, wainscoting on the walls, white subway tile backsplash, and granite counters. All three bathrooms have been completely remodeled. One has a beautiful clawfoot tub that completes the feel from the Era. The very private master suite has been completely remodeled from flooring to bathroom fixtures and decor. In addition to the spacious privacy, the master suite offers a private balcony with views soaring over the rooftops of neighbors serving as the perfect romantic getaway. The roof over the 2nd floor has been replaced recently with shingles and the entire home painted inside and out with eye-catching custom paint colors.
This little piece of historic paradise sits on an oversized lot with access to city irrigation. The options are endless from large family gatherings to baseball games with the kids on a lot of this size. Enjoy the coming and going of the seasons under the canopy of majestic, mature trees and vibrant green grass and shrubbery. The neighbors are friendly and some have been living in their homes for decades. This tight knit community feel lends itself beautifully to holiday celebrations such as Halloween and the Christmas season. More than 600 children visit Evergreen during Halloween and the streets are lined with lights and decorations immediately following Thanksgiving to welcome the coming Christmas season. If you are looking to rekindle the warmth and homey feeling of a visit to Grandma’s in your every day life then this is it. You are home.
