Beadle home, Spanish revival highlight Phoenix Arizona annual home tour

By
Real Estate Agent with The Melcher Agency

A home designed by architect Al Beadle, an old adobe house in the Arcadia district and a Spanish revival will be among homes on the Tour For Life annual home tour.

Equitable Real Estate Co. is sponsoring the Feb. 25 tour that benefits Body Positive, an HIV and AIDs research and resource center. Other tour support comes from TM Bankord, Dixon Design, MSG Design, Guardian Realty & Management, The O'Connor Group PC and Great Southwest Mortgage.

Beadle, perhaps best known for designing the original Cine Capri Theater, designed the 2,600-square-foot Paradise Valley house owned by Herbert and Olivia Quist. It has been featured in a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

The self tour also includes the adobe Mexican-style home in Arcadia owned by Meghan and Jerry Hirsch. It was acquired in 1890 by Thomas Murphy of Detroit through the federal Desert Land Act. He transferred the house to his brother William. The house was used as a sheep weighing station and gatehouse, bunk house for ranch workers and now serves as a 5,000-square-foot home with nine fireplaces, hand-painted murals and garden courtyards. The entry door is 200 years old.

Tour travelers also will be routed to the Willo neighborhood in downtown Phoenix to see a Spanish colonial revival of 2,200 square feet with hardwood floors, coved ceilings, a terrace and guesthouse. Glen Hammond owns the home.

Another tour stop is on Lincoln Drive in Paradise Valley, showcasing a 7,000-square-foot Wiseman & Gale California ranch adobe home dating from the 1930s.

Cost of the noon to 5 p.m. tour is $75. Booklets with maps, information and tickets to each home, can be purchased in advance. A limited number of brochures will be available on the day of the event. For more: 602-307-5330 or at http://www.phoenixbodypositive.org/.

Wow Mario!  Sounds like a great tour - we just had our annual Holiday Walk here in Miami Shores to benefit the Heidi Hewes Women's Cancer Association.  Are you involved with this association or the tour?
