Architecture & Home Styles
The home style in the North Encanto Historic District, where I call “home,” has an overwhelming number of Transitional Ranches with clay tile, low-pitched roofs, double-hung wood windows or steel casement windows.
Therefore, the windows actually define many of the home’s unique look. Some classic examples bend around a corner, and others which are just good, old-fashioned, square and hand-crafted, double hung wood with rope & weight pulley’s.
From Extensively Remodeled to Original Features
Some of these historic homes have been extensively remodeled, while others maintain much, if not all, of the original built-ins and funky colored tile in the bathroom and kitchens.

The clean-lined, wide streets with brick and block homes of the North Encanto Historic District make this neighborhood a head-turner with a high demand for residency. A few streets, such as Flower Circle are named appropriately because they’re something that you just don’t see a lot of on Phoenix – circular streets. The neighborhood is one of the first where the City of Phoenix is installing LED light bulbs in the street lamps.
A Tight Community
North Encanto Historic District is a VERY tight community where neighbors know each other well. As a result, numerous, regular block parties are thrown, people meet and greet and look out for each other in all ways from walking their dogs, and mingling with fellow neighbors while strolling their children and even cruising around on golf carts – yes, golf carts. Also known by “NENA,” you can check out their wonderful, non HOA neighborhood association website here.
An Amazing Holiday Spirit
The holiday spirit is loaded with decorations galore, street parties and just tons of good old-fashioned neighborhood fun directly in proportion to the the 1940s and 1950s lifestyle with hip, fun people of all ages. It is beyond a quaint place to live!
