In these days of copycat quick construction, time stands still at this fully restored 1937 adobe home. Located in Central Phoenix's Medlock Place Historic District, this gem in the desert was constructed of 12-inch thick adobe blocks made from the very earth where 3rd Avenue now runs. When you walk through the front door, you'll be transported back in time by the craftsmanship of the original construction and enchanted by the painstaking restoration that brought this one-of-a-kind home back to life. Owned by the original family for over 80 years, this home was purchased by an architect-builder team who spent nearly two years meticulously restoring its unique features beyond their original glory. Together, along with the help of specialized craftsmen, they restored and preserved the adobe bricks, the original handmade redwood plank doors, the handmade hardware and the original scored concrete floors. They also maintained the original U-shape floor plan, which wraps around a mesmerizing central courtyard perfect for entertaining and outdoor living. The large yard offers room for a detached garage and casita, and an abundance of vibrant restaurants and eclectic shopping is just a half mile away at Uptown Plaza, the "most important corner in Phoenix." This award-winning home, which is listed on the on the National Register of Historical Places, offers endless charm that is reminiscent of the Camelback Inn, the Hermosa Inn or a boutique hotel in Santa Fe. Owning this masterpiece of a home means you own a piece of Arizona, the Southwest, a forgotten trade and the hearts of so many that had a hand in its revival.
