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!

Mesa Historic Home For Sale: 146 W. 7Th Pl., Mesa, AZ 85201

Welcome to the Evergreen Historic District. The wide, tree-lined streets, the gathering of an eclectic variety of home styles, and the quaint, tight knit community of neighbors complete the feel of times passed while incorporating the convenience and amenities that a modern family requires. This 1950 Ranch style home, built by Lester Kuck, is not a common style for this area. J.G. and Doria Allen, a co-owner of Styles and Allen Contractors, were the first owners of this wood board and batten siding mixed with painted concrete masonry units.

The steel single-hung windows and sprawling front facade with low pitch gable roof are characteristics of the ranch style. Historic glass still exists however 2 of the windows were replaced with triple pane. This home has been recently remodeled from floor to ceiling with careful attention to preserving the unique details that make it like no other with tons of historic charm, built-ins and custom touches throughout.

Crisp white plantation shutters with matching crown molding, exposed brick fireplace, and wood flooring are beautifully accompanied by bright white wainscotting, the perfect shade of neutral custom paint and accent wall panels.

Gourmet kitchen boasts gas cook stove, granite counters, bright white cabinets and subway tiles. Stainless appliances and indoor laundry are definitely an added bonus. 

The family room is comfortable and spacious! The wood accented ceiling, accent wall panels and beautiful historic glass windows make this room so warm and inviting.

The large master bathroom with double sinks and huge walk in shower with glass surround is a dream! The framed mirror and perfectly laid tile perfect the look. 

The bonus room, formerly a covered patio, is fully permitted and was just recently enclosed and finished. Gorgeous built-in bookcases and desks make it a great place to work from home or a homework/media nook for the kids. Tons of natural light pours into the bonus room from the double french doors that open to the extended covered patio. 

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 citrus trees. There is even a pomegranate tree! The vibrant green grass is the perfect back drop to the rose bushes that have been there 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. Welcome home!

Huge outdoor storage area under roof and behind bonus room. AC units were replaced in 2013 and 2016.
