Deep landscaped lawns and large Revival Style and Craftsman custom homes make up the smallest historic district in Phoenix; Los Olivos. The beautiful palm-lined streetscape, which is not too common in downtown Phoenix, adds to the historic value and integrity of this district.
The original developers of Los Olivos Historic District aimed for quality construction, well-heeled buyers and stable property values. You’ll probably find a grand living room, formal dining room, and detached garage on any one of these thre-quarters of an acre estates. You may find a wine cellar or tennis courts, library or guest quarters. The average square footage of a Los Olivos home means little since each is custom built and unique, but that average is 2,800 square feet, typically with 4 or 5 bedrooms and a similar number of baths.
Los Olivos Historic District was a prestigious out-of-town address when these homes were custom built in the 1920′s. Although the city has grown around Los Olivos over the decades and it is now central Phoenix, it hasn’t lost any of that original prestige. Homes rarely come on the market and, when they do, they are some of the priciest historic real estate in Phoenix.
Located along Monte Vista Road between 3rd and 7th streets, Phoenix, Arizona.
