Encanto Manor Historic District
General Boundary: 7th Ave to 15th Ave (E/W) and Thomas Rd to Windsor Ave (N/S)
Situated along the northern edge of Encanto Park Golf Course, Encanto Manor Historic District is a small neighborhood, roughly one-and-a-half to two blocks wide by four blocks long. This district encompasses two residential subdivisions, Encanto Manor and Encanto Dell, both platted in 1945. Most of the homes in the district were built between 1945 and 1950, and the majority of the houses are Ranch or Transitional Ranch in style. Two major exceptions are the 1911 James W. Dorris House, a Mission Revival dwelling, and the Encanto Community Church, a 1950 Mediterranean Revival style church.
The Encanto Manor Historic District contains a core palette of ornamental details that are used in various combinations on each house. This creates both individuality and consistency. Commonly found ornamental details include exposed rafter ends, shutters, and contrasting wainscoting wherein the wainscot brick has a different brick size or bond than the walls. Also found are contrasting brick colors or razor stone in small areas such as entry surrounds. Low brick or block planters are found at many houses, usually constructed in the same material as the house. Prominent chimneys are architectural features on many houses. Also found in the Encanto Manor Historic District are bulls-eye windows, glass block windows, low patio walls and cupolas.
Encanto Manor Historic District is directly north of Encanto-Palmcroft Historic District on the north end of Encanto Park. While it is close in proximity, the architecture and history of the neighborhood is vastly different. With that said, it is a cute and quaint district in a perfect Central Phoenix location.
