2031 N Alvarado Rd$1,484,000Sold



Located in the ultra-exclusive Alvarado District, this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own a unique piece of Phoenix history! Welcome to the nationally registered and lovingly restored Marcus P. Kelly House, built in 1923 on just under half an acre, and featuring a detached casita (1,128 square feet) housing not one but two units! With the perfect blend of old-world charm, fine finishes, and modern-day conveniences, this estate excites, enchants, and entices. Dynamic Tabarka tile is the perfect compliment to the rich hardwood floors throughout, as are the copper sinks, bronze details, wooden beams, marble accents and other delicious Spanish details. Did I mention that part of this home was designed as a castle? (See supplemental remarks.)

Work With Us

There is something about growing up in the desert that weaves the mountains, the cactus and ocotillo, and the Valley’s culture into the fabric of your being. Remembering what the streets were like in the 1970s, and seeing how neighborhoods have evolved since then, gives us a unique perspective into today’s Phoenix-area markets. Combine that knowledge and love of the Valley with more than a decade of real estate experience and hundreds of homes sold, and you have a formidable combination. We know real estate. We know the Valley. And we know what it takes to help buyers and sellers succeed. Call the Dwell Phoenix team today to see how we can help you.
