Unlike most Phoenix historic districts, Willo is comprised of many subdivisions -research suggests 23 – 24 in all. Its rough geographic boundaries are Thomas to the north, McDowell to the south, 1st Ave. to the east and 7th St. to the west. Homes in this area have a wide range of architectural styles probably because homes were designed and built here over a long period of time. Maricopa County records indicate home building began in 1905 and continued into the 1950’s with a few newer builds here and there. As you venture through the area you’ll find examples of many architectural styles. call 480-229-8483

    I am interested in any listings you may have in the Willo District in the 350K to 500K range. I am a single father and need a minimum of 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. A separate carriage/guest house is a bonus so that can use/convert it as usable space.

    Thank you for all your help!!!

    the week of the 5th and would be available on the 7th after 12noon to look at homes. Can u let me know if you have homes for rent in the Willow, Ashland, F.Q. area. I can be reached at 602 253 0119. This is a serious renter, who treats homes as if they were owned by her. Thank you!
