Roosevelt Historic District: A Presidentially Beautiful Area to Call Home

If you envision homes with shady porches for reading and attics just like at grandma’s house, then you won’t be able to resist falling in love with the Roosevelt History District. As one of Phoenix’s original neighborhoods, the Roosevelt Historical District is known for its large elite homes that date back to the turn of the century. You’ll find an eclectic mix of architectural delights throughout the neighborhood including Bungalows, Mission Revival, Spanish Colonial Revival, Italian Villa Revival, French Provincial Revival, and English Cottage Revival.

The homes featured in the Roosevelt Historic District are anything but cookie-cutter as each home as unique and timeless as the last. You’ll find distinct properties ranging from 1800 square feet to more than 3000 square feet. Comfort and efficiency were important in the design of these homes, along with quality of construction and workmanship.  Architecturally, the Roosevelt neighborhood has some of the finest streetscapes of early twentieth century residential, religious, and school architecture in the City of Phoenix. People have often compared the style of the homes in Roosevelt to homes built in the Midwest or “back east.”

Roosevelt Historic District is probably the ultimate “downtown neighborhood” in Phoenix. Residents and visitors alike can walk to the famers market, to the Dodge Theatre or Puppet Theatre, or catch the light rail and go to a ballgame at Chase Field. Art lovers will especially appreciate the Roosevelt Row Arts District, a walkable, creative district in the urban core of downtown Phoenix that is nationally known for its arts and cultural events, award-winning restaurants, galleries, boutiques and live music.
