Arcadia Real Estate
Original Phoenix Luxury
Arcadia is home to some of the largest and most desired properties in the priciest area of Phoenix. By no means is this a community that is affordable to any price point, but there is good reason for that—the custom, historical homes, on massive properties, with infinite amenities. This is a high-quality area with high quality homes built between the 1920s and 1950s. The market in Arcadia is not for everyone, as when a home hits the market it can often be in the millions, but the right buyer will find the right house at the right time—and our agents are here to help!
The homes in Arcadia are often very large and were custom built between the 1920s and 1950s. A range of architectural styles line the streets, including Ranches, Revivals, and Pueblo styles. Many homes were commissioned and built independently by wealthy land owners, and the effort shows to this day. The preservation of the homes and land is a nod to the neighborhood’s namesake, Arcadia, a name rooted in Greek history, referencing a pastoral or unspoiled place. Nestled into Camelback Mountain, early builders took the land into consideration with every build and what remains is a beautiful showcase of architectural integrity.
The community of Arcadia is spacious, with large lots that expand from Camelback Road and Lafayette Blvd to the Arizona Canal to the south. Most of the homes in the community were built between the 1920s and 1950s, but in 1987 the Arcadia Camelback Mountain Neighborhood Association was created to preserve the historical ambiance and qualities of the neighborhood. Arcadia is an expensive but extremely family friendly community with large lots and a massive amount of space for kids to play upon. This historic and unique community welcomes families of all shapes and sizes—come see for yourself!
Residents of Arcadia tend to love outdoor recreation, and lucky for them there are a ton of entertaining outdoor activities to be had all around the greater Phoenix area. Camelback Mountain is literally part of the neighborhood—so residents are always out and about on the trails. Piestewa Peak is a local favorite hiking spot for the lovers of the outdoors. For those who are more into the downtown vibe, Phoenix is filled to the brim with diverse and vibrant culture. The Mainstreet Arts District is a must-see, where homeowners at Arcadia often stop over to pick up a new work of art, to dine at a local bistro.
The outdoor recreation afforded to Arcadia residents is unlike anything else. Camelback Mountain is a location for non-stop outdoor entertainment, and residents take full advantage. Residents love white water rafting at Salt River, and hiking or riding horseback through the winding trails on the mountainside. For the visitors and residents who love the outdoors but love a little relaxation and luxury a little more—The Sanctuary Spa and Spa at Camelback Inn are a perfect little getaway to rejuvenate after a long day in the sun.
