The Arcadia neighborhood brings a touch of Southern California to Phoenix. While it is not a historic district, its rich history, architecture, and location make it a must to add to our list. Nestled south of the Camelback Mountains, it was originally filled with orchards. In the 1920s, homes started to be built on large lots for the wealthy. Having a built-in irrigation system allowed many orange and date trees, farms, gardens, horse stables, and lush landscapes to remain, giving the area a touch of rural charm. Today, you will find immaculate custom historic homes, high-end architect-designed remodels, and newly built homes. The large lots are beautifully utilized with custom pools, lush mature landscapes, gardens, orchards, and unique additions. Arcadia also feels like it was built for families with some of the best schools in the state, local parks, resorts, country clubs, and businesses that are family-friendly.
