FQ Story Historic District homes are now one of the most desired in Central Phoenix with tree lined streets, Tudor homes and a location highly coveted.
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.
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.
These homes average around 1,300 to 1,800 square feet and average 3 bedrooms with 1 or 2 bathrooms with hardwood floors, tons of built-ins, classic front porches and just tons of charm. 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.
F.Q. Story’s Historic District’s Period of Significance
1921-1942 holds the most historical significance. In 1920, when development of what is now the F.Q. Story Historic District began, Phoenix had a population of only 29,000. The Neighborhood, as well as many of the individual houses, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. F.Q. Story consists of 602 homes that were constructed from the late 1920’s through the late 1940’s.
