This is an Excellent Value! Currently the Lowest-Priced House with a Pool that's within a 1-mile radius from Downtown Tempe! In 1990, this home was completely destroyed from a fire (see newspaper article in documents tab) except for the exterior block walls. David Williams purchased this home from the previous owner and designed and rebuilt the home. Mr. Williams had remodeled or custom-built several homes in the neighborhood, including the two English Manor style homes at 1712 & 1716 S Roosevelt Street. He also remodeled the home across the street at 602 W 16th Street. His signature style maximizes the use of indoor/outdoor spacehence the addition of the cabana bathroomaccessible from the patio area. This home is located within the northern part of the Clark Park Neighborhood which was originally built by Del Webb in early 1950s as part of the "Campus Homes" subdivision. These were the first ever tract homes built in Tempe. Legend has itrenowned Mid-Century ArchitectRalph Haver, originally designed these homes. Many of the homes in the neighborhood have been well preserved and still feature Ralph Haver's iconic nine-pane window, which is prevalent in other Haver Hoods, such as the Camelback Park Estates in Scottsdale. The Clark Park Neighborhood volunteer group has worked on a number of initiatives to help maintain its neighborhood charm and great community. Just recentlythe neighborhood added new public art by decorating three irrigation standpipes. One of those standpipes happens to be located directly behind this homealongside Roosevelt Street. The neighborhood volunteer group have also opened the Clark Park Community Garden in 2015 and Clark Park Dog Park in 2016. There are current discussions with the City of Tempe about bringing back the community pool at Clark Park. The Clark Park Neighborhood is part of the greater NW Tempe Neighborhoods Heritage District. The neighborhoods within this area have enjoyed a resurgence in recent years as owning a single-family detached home within close proximity to Downtown Tempe has become increasingly desirable. Moreover, the newly redesigned Hardy Drive and University Drive streetscape projects that were completed in 2015 have really transformed the area. There are current plans for another future streetscape project for Broadway Road, between Priest Drive and Mill Ave. As part of the City's Broadway Corridor Revitalization Plan, this section of Broadway Road will undergo a major restoration. This may include new bicycle lanes, larger sidewalks, more shade trees, and new street medians with public art. The area is also being branded the "Tempe Maker District" to help encourage future developments within the Broadway Corridor with an emphasis on attracting local Tempe-based businesses. Given that the Clark Park Neighborhood is located adjacent to Broadway Road, between Roosevelt St and Farmer Ave, this would be a boon to the community. All in all, the Clark Park Neighborhood is shaping up to be one of the most desirable locations in all of Tempe!
