This head-turning North Encanto Historical District Home is offered at a great price and won’t stay on the market for very long. The home features unique and dramatic architecture which lends to intrigue from the exterior and a grand view, floor to ceiling canted glass window of the Downtown Phoenix City Skyline and Mountains from the interior.

It was known originally as ”The Sunshine House” and it garnered local press when it was unveiled in the 1950’s. Thanks to the City of Phoenix Historic Preservation Office we now know that the architect was John Sing Tang – Arizona’s first Chinese Architect! An addition to the back of the house creates a large formal dining space that looks out to the well-designed landscaped yard with large mature shade trees.

A 1954 article from the Arizona Republic labeled the house as “Party House”. The article read, “Very cute modern, interesting elevations, wonderful plan for entertaining. Pretty living room has 10 ft. high window wall affording mountain views & foreground of College Campus…”
