The name “Arcadia” is rooted in ancient Greek history. It is a region and also part of its mythology. Arcadia was home to one of the Greek gods and symbolizes “unspoiled, harmonious wilderness.” Aptly named, Arcadia in Phoenix in the 85018 Zip Code. In Arcadia there’s majestic Camelback Mountain views. Water weaving in and out from the Arizona Canal. And an abundance of fruit trees.
Arcadia is located in Phoenix, AZ just south of the town of Paradise Valley, and west of Old Town Scottsdale. When our clients tell us they want to live in Arcadia, we show them homes between 40th St and 68th St from Camelback Mountain south to Thomas.
The boundaries of Arcadia seem to move depending on who you ask. An Arcadia real estate agent may draw the borders differently than an Arcadia resident. Or a family that live in the heart of Arcadia may have a different idea of the east and west edges when compared to a family that lives across the street of that border. As soon as they share what kind of features they are looking for, large lots, pool, mountain views, we get more focused.
