The Arcadia Neighborhood in Phoenix Arizona

While the Arcadia neighborhood is not a historic district, and it is not even entirely in Phoenix (the eastern edge is actually in the City of Scottsdale), Arcadia still has a big place in Phoenix history and so we are claiming it!

The Residential Area

Custom-built homes from the 20s- 50s have been maintained and updated over the years. You’d be hard pressed to find a new home built to the same high quality today. As a result, the estate homes in the Arcadia Neighborhood can quickly soar to over 6 million and you’ll have to be quick and aggressive when trying to buy one of these properties. Arcadia’s housing market is definitely looking great in the valley of the sun.

The lush, green, mature landscapes of the irrigated Arcadia parcels are not found many places in Phoenix. Remnants of orange and date groves still suggest a hint of “rural” and so do the quiet streets dotted with whatever the architectural style–Ranch, Revival, Pueblo style, or some architectural blend.

Nearby Shopping and Entertainment

The Arcadia neighborhood seems meant for families. The schools are some of the best in the state. Homes vary in size but have lots of space, and the large yards have pools and sport courts for active kids. The biking paths along the Arizona Canal that borders Arcadia on the south offers another opportunity for expending young energy without worrying about traffic.

Rural feel or no, Arcadia homes are just minutes from shopping and dining at the Biltmore Fashion Park (24th Street & Camelback, Phoenix) or the Scottsdale Fashion Square (Scottsdale Road & Camelback, Scottsdale). A short drive will get you to downtown Phoenix, or Old Town Scottsdale, or to Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in about 15 minutes.
