ENCANTO VISTA HISTORIC DISTRICT

Encanto Vista Historic District boundaries are roughly Windsor Avenue, Encanto Boulevard, 7th and 8th Avenues. Encanto Vista is among the smaller historical neighborhoods in Phoenix with about 80 homes shoehorned between 7th Avenue and the Encanto Golf Course.

The architectural styles and square footage in Encanto Vista are mostly ranch style homes built between the mid 1940’s and late 1950’s. Many have detached 1-2 car detached garages in the back. Square footage averages 1,500 to a generous 1,900 square feet with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths on average. Lot sizes are generous averaging about 1/5th of an acre.

Encanto Vista Historic District is only one block wide and six blocks long and contains only 68 properties. Many of the original owners in this neighborhood in the early 1950’s owned their own businesses or sold real estate. When developers planned Encanto Vista, they zeroed in on a key selling point for the neighborhood: Encanto Golf Course. Decades later, that amenity is still a favorite among some residents. When original landowner James W. Dorris sold the property in 1943, he decreed that the new owner build only a “high-class development,” city records show. Indeed, the neighborhood’s large lots and homes immediately attracted a Phoenix mayor, prominent architects, business leaders and others.

If you like Encanto Vista, you’ll probably like Willo, Del Norte Place and North Encanto Historic Districts.
