A paver walkway adds character to this Woodlea Historic Home

Woodlea Historic District houses just over 140 historic homes in this adorable neighborhood which you’ll find just west of the shops at Melrose on 7th Avenue. The location is bounded by Glenrosa Avenue and Mackenzie Drive, 7th and 15th Avenues. The adjacent Melrose District, (also called Melrose on 7th) is a very hip stretch along 7th Avenue lined with restaurants, shops, music stores, boutiques and coffee shops like Copperstar Coffee. There’s even a pretty new organic Herb store getting a lot of attention. A light-rail station is also in walking distance. This neighborhood is a highly desired central Phoenix location.

The architectural styles and square footage in Woodlea Historic District includes only 166 single family homes on irrigated lots. They are mostly Cottage Style homes like Transitional Ranches including French Provincials from the 1930’s and 1940’s. However, a wide range of other historic design types are also represented, including various Period Revival styles. Square footage ranges from around 850 to around 1,300, with either 2 or 3 bedrooms and 1 to 2 bathrooms. 

The Woodlea Historic District includes most of the original Woodlea Subdivision as originally platted. Homes in a wide range of styles popular in Phoenix during the 1920’s, ‘30s and ‘40s can be found interspersed throughout the district although the oldest houses are generally found on Mackenzie Drive and 9th Avenue. Most homes in Woodlea are constructed of brick or concrete block, with the exterior walls painted or stuccoed. A few of the earliest homes are constructed of adobe. The homes are generally one-story in height. Woodlea is graced by an abundance of large palms and deciduous trees which provide ample shade and give the neighborhood a unique charm. The street curbing is vertical and sidewalks are present but there is no landscaped parking strip. Most homes have concrete driveways with detached garages in the rear yard, although several of the Ranch style homes have attached garages.

Although this historic neighborhood is nestled in one of the historic district’s that’s in the the heart of Phoenix, it is a quiet, cottage community where most of the homes are between 40 and 70 years old. Homeowners seek out the Woodlea Historic District neighborhood for its history, central location, lush landscaping and nearby amenities, Melrose on 7th Avenue where most buildings are also historic with cool architecture, both modern and quirky yet sometimes nostalgic.

Woodlea Historic DIstrict was developed between 1928-1949. The first known home to be built is believed to be in 1916. One noteworthy resident was Lorna Lockwood, the state’s first female Supreme Court judge, who lived in Woodlea while serving on the bench. Historic Designation was given to Woodlea in January, 1999.

If you like the location and homes of Woodlea, you’ll probably like Pierson Place and Yaple Park, both just across on the east side of 7th Avenue also walking distance to the Melrose District,  or Cheery Lynn, North Encanto and Del Norte Place Historic Districts.
