240 W 1ST AVE, Mesa, AZ 85210

Own a remarkable piece of Mesa history! 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 even 100+ years old!), fully fenced with automatic gates at both parking areas and even a gated front entrance. It’s the convenience of a bustling Downtown with the peace of a zen-like retreat.

Built solid and efficient with all new doors and windows. The dimensional shingle roof is nearly new and very durable as is the dual stage AC unit. Gourmet kitchen features sleek, upgraded cabinets (and plenty of them!), polished concrete counters, built-in refrigerator, 6 burner gas stove AND pot filler!

This home is like no other in the area with venetian plaster walls, cork laminate flooring, rounded corners throughout and “smart” master shower / tub. The extra large lot offers plenty of space for entertaining with extra large covered patio and gated RV parking. The workshop can be easily converted to a guest house!

All this and more wrapped up in cozy, historic Mesa. This is the neighborhood where the neighbors know each other by first name and all the children and grandchildren come to visit on the holidays. The location is convenient and mere minutes from historic Downtown Mesa. Downtown Mesa is the home of the world renowned Mesa Arts Center, the historical museum, and many highly recommended and award winning restaurants including Worth Takeaway, the original Blue Adobe and Queens Pizzeria. There is quite a vibe within the neighborhood and Mesa’s historic Downtown area that includes the arts, music and family friendly events. There are many wonderful things on the horizon for this area. It’s the perfect time to settle in!
