An Intro To Town & Country Tract Home Neighborhoods

town and country ad The first Town and Country neighborhood was heavily promoted in The Arizona Republic and through Arizona Homes and Gardens magazine, shown below.
Town and Country Homes were a tract home concept developed by Fred Woodworth. The first Town and Country subdivision broke ground in 1956 and evolved with each iteration over four distinct locations. The model home style was so flexible and popular that variations of the home are found peppered thorughout Phoenix as stand-alone custom homes. Their price point is attractive even today as a new generation of Desigerns and DIYers begin to modify them for modern living. Aware that these well-loved Haver Homes in their original form would soon become in short supply, The City of Scottsdale had the foresight to designate one Town and Country neighborhood as historic and deveoped easy to implement preservation guidelines for exterior architecture that serve as a good guideline for anyone renovating their Haver Home.
