The enduring, historically-significant N.J. Zeiser residence, c.1935, is situated in the idyllic North Encanto historic district. Like fine art, this Southwestern adobe home showcases extraordinary craftsmanship + thoughtful design. A masterful renovation totaling $200,000+ includes refined interiors, new 650 sq ft primary suite addition + newly constructed 248 sq ft detached cottage / guest house on a 1/3 acre N/S lot. Home offers flexible living with 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms & 2,426 square feet of total livable space (3/2 main house is 2,178 sq ft + 1/1 guest house is 248 sq ft). This unique home underwent a complete overhaul of the electrical, plumbing, sewer, water heater, roof and AC systems. Remarkable care was taken to preserve historical features, while updating the interiors, in a modern Southwestern aesthetic. The curb appeal is dialed in with a sprawling, irrigated lawn, mature trees, Hollywood drive and gorgeous front elevation with arched entry to the front sitting porch. Inside, the coved ceilings, thick adobe walls, dreamy arches and tall ceilings are all original treasures. An open, modern kitchen features custom steel + flat panel cabinetry, quartz counters, prep island, breakfast bar with waterfall edge, exposed wood beams/trusses + ductwork, high-end GE cafe appliances, glazed ceramic tile backsplash and custom steel box window. A cozy outside courtyard off the kitchen connects to a shaded outdoor gathering area. The inviting living room opens to the kitchen and dining room, for seamless entertaining. The dining room features a statement chandelier and a local artisan-crafted wood + steel shelving unit. Settle in for sweet slumber in the exquisite new primary suite. From the soaring ceilings to the solid oak floors, every detail is perfection. There is a huge walk-in closet, access to the rear yard and OMG-the bathroom!! If you are looking to relax and rejuvenate, this bathroom offers a freestanding soaking tub with a gorgeous half moon product niche and a walk-in shower with crisp white tile surround and a chic checkered tile accent wall. Additional bathroom features include expanses of Saltillo tile, private toilet area, floating vanity and rattan chandelier. An office/flex space is located off the primary suite, with 2 large storage cabinets. The hall bath screams fun with bold hand-painted 'wallpaper' and designer vanity lights, while still being practical with double vessel sinks atop a custom steel vanity, stacked subway tiled shower, tiled accent wall and finished concrete floors. Both secondary bedrooms have concrete floors and walk-in closets. Being able to work from home AND offer guest accommodations, is no problem here! City of Phoenix adopted zoning changes in 2023 that allow the cottage/studio to be used as a guest house. The cottage has a studio space/bedroom with closet and bathroom with stacked subway-tiled shower, dual flush toilet and wall-mounted modern vanity. Currently, the cottage is being used as a working artist studio, but it would make a great space for next-gen living/guest retreat by adding a kitchen/kitchenette. The rear yard is pool-sized and surrounded by new block fencing-ready for the next phase of customization. Additional features: new black aluminum Milgard dual pane windows, new dual pane doors, new inside laundry room with built-in cabinetry, new designer lighting and fixtures and new interior doors/millwork. Enjoy mature pecan and lime trees on the property. North Encanto is an epic community where neighbors gather several times a year for special events. Nearby to many Phoenix staples and destinations including the new Royale Phx, Copperstar coffee, Starbucks, Phoenix College, Encanto elementary school, Melrose district with vintage and MCM shopping & bars, Vovomeena, Short Leash, Luana's, St. Joes hospital, Sprouts, Natural Grocers & Encanto Park/Enchanted Island. With its refined interiors, top-of-the-line finishes, generous lot size, historical architecture and central locale, THIS HOME HAS IT ALL! Property has been approved for a historic tax reclassification to go into effect in 2024 to reduce property taxes up to 50% for owner-occupants!
