A Coveted Location
Very close to downtown Phoenix including Chase Field Ballpark, Symphony Hall, loads of other cultural venues, hip restaurants, art galleries and the ability to hop on the nearby light rail.
A Picturesque Neighborhood
These retro homes make for a real, live story book neighborhood and is is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Central Phoenix, and, without a doubt, one of my absolute personal favorites. Take a drive through someday and you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about.
Many homeowners over the years have done tasteful, luxurious additions expanding their square footage. However, the original footprint of these homes average around 1,300 to 1,800 square feet with roughly 3 bedrooms with 1 or 2 bathrooms. Hardwood floors, tons of built-ins, classic front porches and just loads of charm is inevitable in each of these glorious homes.
Consequently, manicured green lawns and colorful, impressive gardens are the norm. Some of the oldest and most picturesque homes in central Phoenix can be found in F. Q. Story. This neighborhood exudes pride of ownership
