NORTH CENTRAL PHOENIX CORRIDOR

The North Central Phoenix Corridor is roughly bounded by just north of Camelback, north to Northern and 7th Avenue to 7th Street. Central Avenue runs north and south directly between the 7’s. Along with its rich history, It offers the ease of convenience of location. Only a few miles from downtown Phoenix, Scottsdale and Paradise Valley, North Central is quite convenient for anyone who works in the middle of the city and beyond. Highways I-10 and I-17 are just a very short drive.

North Central Phoenix CorridorThe North Central Corridor is one of the pricier areas of central Phoenix, and with good reason. With large custom-built homes, deep irrigated lots, North Central has a decidedly rural feel despite its proximity to downtown Phoenix just a few miles south.  A home in North Central range range between $500,000 to $6 million and rising. More modest homes and townhomes are also available as you travel farther north and east. The people are wonderful and the community is spectacular. Visit the North Central Phoenix Neighborhood Association.

The North Central Corridor has its own mix of architecture ranging from traditional French Provincial, Cape Cod and sprawling Ranch-styled homes to more modern styles that blend seamlessly with their older neighbors. House hunters can easily lose themselves along the side streets and in the cul-de-sacs on any given evening as they admire the profound streetscapes.

The neighborhoods encompassing this large residential area have not received historic designation in its entirety but has great history and has been in place for at least 50 years. ‘North Central,’ by itself, has not been named an historic district by the City of Phoenix but there are plenty of homes designated historic and placed on the National Registry of Historic Places. Central Avenue itself, now becoming densely built with corporate offices and high rise living in the downtown area, still retains its calm charm and neighborhood feel in the North Central Phoenix Corridor.

The older part North Central Phoenix area extends through the Central Camelback Corridor just past Northern Avenue. “North Central” is relative to downtown Phoenix as the area has grown so much in recent years. Many people believe that the North Central Phoenix area is just an extension of the ever-growing downtown Phoenix. There are so many beautiful, upscale mansions and stately homes grace this area, which is smothered with fragrant citrus trees. Huge, sprawling ranches on very large lots with mature landscaping are the common theme of home ownership in North Central Phoenix.

Here, many homes have been maintained to give residents a taste of mid-20th century character and charm. For a tour through history, stroll Medlock Place’s tree-lined streets and original ranch-style homes, then walk, bike or saddle up and meander down the 100-year-old, still-unpaved cross-town trail of the Murphy Bridle Path which is listed in the City of Phoenix Historic Register and is also a Point of Pride for Phoenix.

The historic Murphy Bridle Path on both sides of Central Avenue preserves the shady, rural feel of this main drag flaunting unpaved gravel paths and old growth Elm and Olive trees. From Bethany Home Road to Northern Avenue, you’ll see daily joggers, walkers and baby strollers appreciating this shady path throughout the day.

Streets meander off Central Avenue around mature shade trees and carpets of well-kept grass. This residential calm in the middle of downtown is shared with most of our historic Phoenix districts but the lush greenness and large acreage is in sharp contrast to most other areas of the valley perhaps most notably in the openness of the lots.

If you like the homes of North Central, you may also like those in the Arcadia neighborhood farther east along Camelback or the estates in the Alvarado Historic District farther south on Central Avenue, or the Willo Historic District and the Encanto-Palmcroft Historic District. Read More…
