Town and Country Scottsdale aka Town & Country 3

72nd Place and Oak in Scottsdale

Town and Country Scottsdale of 1958 is the first modern-styled neighborhood ever to be designated historic by any city in the Valley of the Sun. Sixty-two homes built diagonally from Haver & Nunn's Coronado High School complex were designated by the City of Scottsdale in 2005 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2010. Sliding glass doors lead out to the patio-port area, and corner-to-corner walls of glass at eye level let in light but protect privacy. The fourth windowpane visible from streetside is deceptive — it is actually the window for the bathroom. Clinker brick treatments in the wainscoting of some elevations, as well as the open grid form above the patio-port are two defining characteristics. These 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom homes sold for $15,850 their time. The homes are mostly intact and slowly benefitting from the assignment of exterior rehabilitation grants through the City of Scottsdale Historic Preservation program.
