La Hacienda Historic District boundaries are roughly 3rd Street to 7th Street, Catalina Drive south to Thomas Road. There are only two streets that make up this historic district; Verde Lane and Catalina Drive, between 3rd and 7th Streets.
Homes do not come up for sale very often in this exquisite district.
The La Hacienda Historic District spans only two streets: Verde Lane and Catalina Drive between 3rd and 7th streets in Central Phoenix. Monterrey, Spanish and Mediterranean Revival-style homes sit behind grassy lawns along curbless streets that are reminiscent of older & more rural days. In a city that loves to put cement curbing everywhere, the absence of it is notable and refreshing here. A stroll through La Hacienda puts you under the shade of mature trees, giving this district great credit on the pedestrian friendly, walkable and family friendly ratings.
La Hacienda is a wonderful choice if you are looking for a home with history that also has space. The typical Revival-style home has an average of 3,200 square feet with at least 3 bedrooms, and usually 3 baths, usually on a 1/2 acre or more of lush grounds. Newer, Ranch-style homes have an average of 1,800 square feet, typically with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths and sits on smaller downtown lot size but still with a good lawn size.
The gorgeous Phoenix County Club, said to inspire this upscale neighborhood back in the 1920’s, is La Hacienda’s neighbor to the east of 7th Street. The light rail on Central Avenue is a quick jaunt 1/3 mile to the west and the gourmet ghetto of Coronado Historic District offers so many restaurant choices on 7th Street just south of Thomas Road.
If these homes call to you but you can’t find one available, you might want to check out the Country Club Manor neighborhood/Phoenix Country Club across 7th Street or the Alvarado and Encanto-Palmcroft Historic Districts. If the landscaping of La Hacienda appeals to you you may also like the Adobe homes of the Phoenix Homesteads Historic District.
