encanto vista,map,historic,district,neighborhood,area,phoenix,arizonaEncanto Vista is among the smaller historical neighborhoods in Phoenix with about 80 homes shoehorned between 7th Avenue and the Encanto Golf Course.

Encanto Vista Historic District, west of 7th Avenue and just south of Thomas Road, is only one block wide and six blocks long. Encanto Vista isn’t very large, but with neighboring districts like Encanto Palmcroft Historic District to the south of Encanto Boulevard, Encanto Manor Historic District to the north of Windsor, and Willo Historic District on the eastern side of 7th Avenue, Encanto Vista is part of an extended historic area in Central Phoenix. All of these neighborhoods are just minutes from Downtown Phoenix.

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.
