In Tempe, people often talk about the “aging housing stock” and the fact that it is hard ( or very expensive ) to find newer homes in the area. The fact that Tempe is basically landlocked is certainly one of the main reasons you don’t see many new housing developments. While we have a ton of awesome neighborhoods, there is currently a cool trend happening where people take the time, effort and resources to update their homes. I love it when we have the opportunity to showcase properties that have been remodeled in the Tempe area.
A Prime Example:
Optimist Park was built in the 70’s and is in a great location near restaurants, freeways, parks, shopping schools and more. Take a look at these photos from 1963 East Harvard Drive in Optimist Park. The home has recently been remodeled by adding new tile, new cabinets, granite counters, new doors and hardware, new sinks, lighting, base boards, fresh paint, plumbing fixtures, toilets, vanities, disposal, garage door, front and rear landscaping and more. Whew, that’s a LOT of updating. The floor plan was even changed a bit to add a beautiful kitchen island, open up the living area and to expand the bathroom so that double sinks could be installed.
If you have been looking for a nicely updated home in an Awesome Tempe location, take a look at 1963 E Harvard. The map below will show the location and give you a better feel for some of what the area has to offer. We think you’ll like it…
