spanish revival dream home

Wow! I can’t believe how quickly time flies when you’re having fun (or taking care of a baby, buying a new home, selling the current one and starting new business ventures). HOWEVER, we’re back to posting and thrilled to share with everyone our newest adventure – turning this wonderful-boned 80’s house into the Spanish Revival home of our dreams.

Located in North Central Phoenix on the beautiful tree-lined Central Ave, this gem was a diamond in the rough and was just waiting for someone to come along and give it some TLC.
