Key Selling Point Focus
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.
