Arcadia Historic

One of Phoenix real estate’s most coveted neighborhoods, Arcadia became the charmed urban enclave as people moved to the suburbs. This flourishing community with high-achieving schools and excellent restaurants is a neighborhood where buyers are willing to pay top dollar to live in. The area of Arcadia stretches from just south of Camelback Mountain to Thomas, between 44th & 68th Streets. This centrally located community is adjacent to Paradise Valley, the Biltmore area, and Scottsdale. Known for its large lots, family-friendly bike paths and citrus trees, this neighborhood is one of the most highly desirable places to live in Phoenix.


The Arcadia neighborhood contains many larger ranch homes that were occupied by citrus farmers in the first half of the 20th century. When air-conditioning was invented and Phoenix expanded, growth caught up to the farms and suburbanized the area with smaller, well-built ranch-style homes that fit in with the community. City planners enhanced the area with schools, parks and bike paths that made Arcadia one of the top neighborhoods to live in for the Phoenix real estate market. Today the community and surrounding area continue to draw well to do families and young, hip city dwellers.
