Phoenix Homesteads

With homes built from indigenous materials such as adobe, a mix of mud, this WPA project from the depression, Phoenix Homesteads, is the only neighborhood of adobes in Phoenix.The initial phase of the Phoenix Homesteads community was designed to accommodate single-family homes on standard size subsistence farm lots. Constructed of adobe, the simple homes were designed in the Pueblo Revival style. Typically, they had flat or low-pitched, tiled or slabstone roofs, irregular floor plans and wide verandas. A significant part of the building of the first phase was planting of street trees, notably the Washington Palms and Aleppo Pines which still line Pinchot Avenue today. These Pueblo Revival homes average 1400 square feet, on lots that range from one-third to three-quarters of an acre. The Phoenix Homesteads Association continues to operate today, making it the oldest continuously operating homeowners association in the Valley. Many aspects of its heritage remain, including the large lots, the towering Aleppo Pines and Washington Palms, and common area, which give the district a decidedly rural character and make it one of Phoenix’ most unique neighborhoods. call 480-229-8483
