Searching historic Phoenix homes in the Encanto-Palmcroft historic district is easy.
Mature landscaping, picturesque homes and friendly neighbors attract residents to the Encanto-Palmcroft Historic District in central Phoenix. Composed of two subdivisions built beginning in the 1920's, the neighborhood has ornamental streetlights, mature palm trees and curving streets.

"I love living here," said resident G.G. George. "It's kind of small-town Leave It to Beaver."

Architectural styles include Spanish Colonial Revival, Tudor, Pueblo Revival, Neo-Mediterranean and Monterey Revival. The neighborhood is within walking distance of Encanto Park. George said that when she moved to the neighborhood 35 years ago, she was one of the youngest on her street. Now, young families are moving in. George said she spends a lot of time talking to people thinking about buying a home in the neighborhood.

"It's a privilege to live in this neighborhood," George said. "Neighbors look after each other. I tell people, 'You're not buying a home, you're buying a neighborhood."
