Phoenix Homesteads is a special neighborhood with Pueblo Revival architecture, majestic trees, and a uniquely rural atmosphere in the heart of the city. It was originally developed during the Great Depression under a small New Deal program called the Subsistence Homestead Division. The homes were built with indigenous materials and small farms to grow a self-sustaining food supply. This is the original sustainable living neighborhood and it holds great value today. While you can find Pueblo Revivals sprinkled across other neighborhoods, it’s only here that you will find a full community of them. Their thick, naturally cooling walls are perfect for arid climates, and the neighborhood’s Aleppo pine trees and Washington palms provide cooling shade as well. The Pueblo Revivals, along with Spanish Colonials, Tudor Revivals and Bungalows, were built starting in 1935. Additional homes were built in the surrounding area through the 1950s. There’s over 200 homes here, many with a third to quarter acre of land. The average home has 3 bedrooms and 1-3 bathrooms. Browse homes for sale in the Phoenix Homesteads area below.
