Yes, you can finally buy a home in Phoenix’s Historic Woodlea Melrose neighborhood!
We don’t see a ton of inventory in this charming Midtown neighborhood because there’s so little turnover, so today may be your lucky day if you’re looking for a cute little Mayberry house.
Woodlea Melrose is beloved for its quaint architecture, neighborly feel, abundant greenery, and tight-knit community. This is where you’ll want to be if you want to engage in events like Front Yard Fridays, where neighbors gather in one another’s yards for casual get togethers, or have the luxury of a community toolshed!
Just last night a neighbor who moved here during the pandemic told me, “This is the place we’ve felt most at home of anywhere we’ve lived.” That is one powerful testament.
This new listing is just off of the 7th Avenue curve and within walking distance to Copper Star Coffee, Melrose Manor, and a bunch of fun little vintage stores. The neighborhood abounds with kids, dogs, and is a little epicenter of Midtown’s LGBTQ community. Diversity and tolerance are at home here.
Enter into an open living and dining area surrounded by shiny hardwoods and character windows. This guy measures just over 1100 sq. ft. and was last sold in 2018, so it looks to be in great shape.
The kitchen is fully updated (sometimes it’s hard to find homes of this vintage with dishwashers!) with all stainless appliances and was renovated in a simple white palette.
You can’t tell from this angle, but the kitchen is off of an interior laundry room – always a PLUS!
Two of the three bedrooms are pretty sizable with the third seeming to function best as a nursery or office space.
Here is the master with a wall of closets and the one bath in the home. Compact but totally liveable, right?
Outside is a wonderful oasis with a sitting area, grassy area for the dog, detached garage, and plenty of room for garden boxes or maybe even a chicken coop?
I’d run some bamboo or black mesh sheeting along that chain link fence immediately to make it super private. It’s so cheap and easy…why doesn’t everyone band together against chain link???
We think this is a great home for a first-time buyer or perhaps those who are downsizing.
And at 415K, it may be a good option for those quickly becoming priced out of the equally desirable Coronado Historic District.
