One of the things that people like about Broadmoor is the design of the neighborhood. Based on a large oval, the neighborhood is largely self contained. Located between Broadway and Winsett to the south, and Tucson Blvd and Country Club, Broadmoor has only Arroyo Chico as a direct through street through the neighborhood, so busy traffic is less of an issue when compared to other neighborhoods that are open ended. No U of A game day parking problems either!
The neighborhood is about a mile from the U of A, so a lot of people who are involved with the University choose to live here. It is also close to Reid Park, Tucson's largest park, where there is a zoo, open air concerts and (sometimes) professional baseball. Nothing like that further north. Of course, El Con and the movie theatres are just minutes away, as is Downtown.
If you take a careful look through the neighborhood, you will see that there have been several infill projects, where a house was torn down and replaced with new, or even more common, a house was gutted and totally remodeled. You will see two of those on Eastbourne Street, the one at 257 S Eastbourne sold for $186,500 back in Jan of 2011 and has been completely gutted, with major upgrades in progress. Their neighbor to the south is doing the same thing, after building a guest house that would rival anything in town for modernity and style. The latest infill project, which is in progress, is on Croyden, on the west end, and another was recently completed on Arroyo Chico on the south side, near the Treat alley. People spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on these projects. for good reason: they like the neighborhood! Of course there are other homes that have been lovingly maintained in their original style without radical upgrades.
In the past 10 years or so, there have been many architect-designed rehab jobs completed in the neighborhood, so that tells me that smart people with money are betting on Broadmoor.
If you look at the past sales in Broadmoor, it has held its own vs other popular central neighborhoods. Take Blenman, for example. As of 7/25/2011, Broadmoor has an edge on the median price per square foot and only 3K below Blenman with the median price. In the recent past, we have had sales above 300K and I would bet that if any of the rehabbed properties hit the market, you would see those prices again, even in this interesting market.
We have a great (voluntary) neighborhood association that has, over the years, protected our interests and improved our neighborhood. And they won’t tell you what color you can paint your door (or house!)
Another bit of news: I was solicited yesterday by neighbors who are working on obtaining a Historical designation for Broadmoor. They were taking a door to door survey, which is one of the first steps. If they are successful, it might bring about a large property tax savings for eligible homeowners.
Anyway, I wanted to shed some light on the neighborhood that I live and work in. I hope that this effort to acquaint you with Broadmoor, Sam Hughes’ neighbor to the south, is helpful to you and maybe, someday, you will join us here!
