The Ashland Place Historic District is generally located along Hoover, Vernon and Ashland Avenues between Central Avenue and 3rd Street in Phoenix, Arizona.
The homes in Ashland Place Historic District were originally envisioned by Mr. Heard (of the now Heard Museum), were to be large estates with acreage like those in neighboring Alvarado but were re-subdivided into smaller parcels due to the lackluster Phoenix real estate market of the late 1920s.
As a result of the subdividing, Ashland Place has compact lots with smaller and more affordable homes, 68 of them, to be exact, according to the Historic Preservation Office in Phoenix.
Location and Walkablity
The location is just amazing as you’re just a few steps away from the Metro Phoenix Light Rail, and, walking distance to so many businesses, markets, restaurants, bars, museums and residential high-rises along Central Avenue. What’s not in your preference for walking distance or bicycling can be gotten to by a VERY short drive or Light rail ride.
Ashland Place is and has always been a highly coveted neighborhood. In addition to the terrific location with so many nearby amenities, there’s not a home in Ashland Place that won’t provide you with the relaxing, breathtaking sunsets Phoenix is notorious.
