Olive Acres

17th Drive and Dunlap Ave

If you've ever wondered what a "character ranch" is, then wonder no more. Marketed as "Dutch Village" in 1958, these all-electirc houses presented by Healy Homes weren't afraid to show their European flair. Is it possible Healy is the same "west side homebuilder" of Al Beadle's Healy-Fearnow Residence? Homes started at $11,950, the homes are easy to spot with their sloping rooflines, weeping mortar, built-in planters and diamond mullions. This home's carport has been enclosed, but that shingle facade is just too good not to include here. Photos ©2018 Modern Phoenix LLC
