Property Description

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 sq ft) 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.) That's right - you will feel like royalty as you snuggle up to watch TV in the main-floor portion of this theatre-in-the-round. The circular room boasts exquisitely hand-carved woodwork and a sweeping stairway that leads to an exclusive en-suite retreat above. Or maybe spend time cooking in your drop-dead gorgeous kitchen that features an AGA stove/oven & AGA Marvel fridge, hand-painted tiles, copper finishes, a divine butler's pantry & additional storage pantry that features custom doors from Portugal. Head upstairs to soak in the master bath's hammered copper tub or play games with the family in the loft area. No matter what the angle, inside or out, this residence just looks and feels good. With over $500,000 worth of renovations and unique upgrades, virtually every surface of this property has been touched. Both units in the detached casita were completely renovated in 2015 and feature new water heaters, HVAC, roof, and more. In the generously sized yet inviting main house, all 4 1/2 bathrooms, the walls, the floors, the stair railing, the water heaters, the decks, roof, windows, HVAC, water softeners, fans/fixtures - all have been re-done. This is no white-and-grey investor flip - this is an act of love, and a way to carry on the beautiful story of this home. We can't wait to see who will write the next chapter - will it be you?
