Villa Verde: The Ultimate Guide

Villa Verde historic houses

The Villa Verde neighborhood is a tucked away gem. This community was built alongside the Arizona State Fairgrounds from 1928 through 1940. The creator built Tudor Revivals in English Cottage and Cotswold Revival styles, along with Spanish Colonial and Pueblo Revival homes. The architectural diversity of this area makes it special.

Each home has its own unique design elements, so you’ll see a variety of special interior features, roof types, window designs, construction materials and other characteristics. This small neighborhood is just 1 block wide and 4 streets long. The train runs alongside it, blocking street traffic and making the neighborhood feel secluded and private.
