Platted in 1910 by Edwin M. LeBaron and James Miller, Jr., Evergreen Historic District was initially the home of Mesa’s middle to upper class residents. Welcome to a neighborhood with rich history and a tight-knit community feel. Some families have owned their homes for decades, passing down to the next of kin, keeping these precious historical gems in the family.
Built in 1946 but brimming with modern amenities, sharp lines, and tasteful updates, this single level built with brick offers multiple living spaces, a pool and even a garage. Packed with pavers leading to a large covered front “porch”, this curb appeal is like no other around.
Tastefully appointed, rustic fences and planter boxes adorn the spacious front yard. Long driveway leading to the garage offers plenty of parking space for family gatherings, your classic car or your boat, trailer and toys.
This unique home boasts all the formals! The formal living room has a fireplace and real wood beams and the spacious formal dining room is perfectly situated in the front of the home with a beautiful view of the perfectly manicured front yard and quaint, 100-year-old tree lined streets peppered with an eclectic array of home styles ranging over decades. No two homes are exactly alike here. Lots of tile and hardwood throughout, granite counters and light colored, solid cabinets with crown molding and stainless appliances. Showers have decorative tile surrounds and master carpet is neutral and cozy.
Saving the best for last! The back yard is just TO-DIE-FOR with cozy seating area, outdoor fire pit right at the pool for that perfect fire and water combination, rough travertine pool surround and lush landscaping. The unique and very historic old bungalow that can be seen from the back yard is owned by a neighbor and no one lives in the home. It was moved from it’s original location and restoration efforts are to begin shortly. This home is an important part of Mesa’s history!
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 for a social neighborhood, this is it. You are home. The location is also quite convenient and up and coming.
