Once every two years the people of Phoenix get a treat, a peek into homes in the Encanto Palmcroft Historic District. We are delighted to announce the 2013 Encanto Palmcroft Home Tour is happening soon. Below we have home tour information including how to buy tickets, where to park and more.
What Makes The Encanto Palmcroft Home Tour Special?
Encanto-Palmcroft has dozens of epic homes from the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s. The power brokers of Phoenix’s early days built many of these homes that feature revival architectural styles such as Georgian, Colonial, Cap Cod. Federal, Pueblo, Monterey and Tudor. Although you can find some of these styles in other historic districts, Encanto-Palmcroft is home to many of the largest with square footages often in the 3000-5000+ range and resting on 1/4 to nearly 1/2 acre lots. These homes often have features not often seen in newer homes as well as the mature land and street scape.
The bi-annual Encanto-Palmcroft home tour gives Phoenicians a wonderful glimpse inside and around several special historic properties. If you miss it this year you’ll have to wait until 2015 when the next historic home tour will be held.
