CORONADO HISTORIC DISTRICT

Coronado Historic District boundaries are roughly Virginia Avenue to Coronado Road, 8th Street to 14th Street and houses one of the largest city parks being Coronado Park at 12th Street & Palm Lane. One of the most active sectors of commercial activity within the Coronado neighborhood exists along 7th Street, particularly centered around the secondary intersection of 7th and Sheridan Streets which is referred to as Sheridan Square.

Coronado is walking distance to loads of unique, diverse and independently owned cool restaurants, wine bars, coffee shops, cafes, beauty salons and fun shops from casual to high-end like Drip Coffee Lounge, Tuck Shop and much more. Coronado covers a bit more than a half square mile. It was designated historic in November, 1986. 

Coronado is ripe with revitalization and renewal today as the entire neighborhood has evolved visibly in recent years becoming one of the most sought-after residential addresses in Central Phoenix. Though not as manicured as the neighboring Alvarado, Willo or Encanto-Palmcroft neighborhoods, the more eclectic, artsy Coronado contains an equally established patchwork of historic homes mostly constructed between the 1920’s and 1940’s.

The Houses In Coronado

Homes in this district are being remodeled left and right and are just absolutely GORGEOUS! Coronado Historic District houses predominately range from the 1920’s and include Tudor’s, Craftsman Bungalows and and Ranch houses from the 1940’s. The wide, comfortable porches glare at you before you even enter these homes. Most have two bedrooms and one bathroom from 700 square feet to about 1,000 square feet are the dominant home sizes in Coronado but it’s certainly not limited to that as you can find a wide variety of homes with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms ranging from around 1,200-1,500 square feet. These terrific wide porches and quaint neighborhood ambiance comes with decent lot sizes and mature trees making Coronado homes ideal for entertaining. I highly recommend driving through the neighborhood so you can see the beautiful work being done on so many of these homes!

Prices start at around $150,000 – $175,000. Houses often include a freestanding garage out back with matching architectural details. During the Great Depression, many residents converted their garage into an apartment, moved in, and rented their home.

Why Buy Now?

The neighborhood’s affordability is outstanding. And while there are still a few dilapidated houses, most are in pretty good shape. Buy a house here and all you’ll need to do is pick out the furniture and add a fresh coat of paint.

Among the best for: Bargains, City Life, Easy Commute, First-Time Home Buyers and Singles. If you like Coronado, you’ll want to check out Country Club Park and Brentwood Historic Districts.

Coronado Historic District in Phoenix is another Arizona neighborhood to land on the Best Old House Neighborhoods List for 2010 by This Old House.

Coronado Historic District, Phoenix

Once Phoenix had ensured its long-term survival by damming up the Salt River in the early 1900’s, developers got down to the business of plotting the future of the growing Southwestern city, and that future was all about suburbs. By 1920 one of the largest was the Coronado neighborhood, home to a middle-class population of merchants, policemen, and railroad engineers living in modest bungalows and Tudor Revival cottages, many fronted by small lots with towering palm trees. These days the neighborhood is drawing a young, artsy crowd, who like to hang out on their front porches and wave to neighbors who pass by. The neighborhood was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986. Each spring, residents show off their homes—and often their DIY handiwork—during an annual house tour and community festival.
