This home is located in one of the first subdivisions in Scottsdale up for historic designation! It was also the original model home for the subdivision, and the original plans have been preserved, and will be passed on to the new buyer(s).
According to the city of Scottsdale's case fact sheet for Town & Country Scottsdale, "Town and Country Scottsdale was subdivided by Phoenix title and trust in 1958 and approved the same year by the mayor and city council of Scottsdale as well as the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors. The subdivision was planned and constructed by Fred Woodward. "Woody" was a local builder who specialized in small and medium sized developments, favoring contemporary style homes. He also engaged in custom home building across the valley.
The homes were designed by Ralph Haver, a prominent Valley architect well known for his work on a number of different projects including single family homes and apartments, schools, and various retail and commercial buildings. Haver receive national acclaim for his work and was known to collaborate with several developers in the design of their single family homes, including Dell Webb Development Company. A very low pitch roof, front facing gable roof and the use of clerestories and window walls characterized Haver's trademark contemporary styles. Woodward used Haver's single family home designs in at least half a dozen subdivisions he developed in the metropolitan area. Town and Country Scottsdale was their third largest single family residential development.
The neighborhood is a unique expression in Scottsdale of the practice of a prominent architect and a local builder working together, which was a relatively uncommon trend in postwar single family residential development. The development is significant for its association with Ralph Haver, a well-known architect of modern contemporary style buildings across the valley in the postwar period. It is also unique for its prominent use of contemporary housing designs." For more information on the historic significance of this home, please visit http://eservices.scottsdaleaz.gov/plann ...
