Encanto Manor Historic District Highlights
When developers began planning Encanto Manor after World War II, they enticed homeowners with promises of “luxurious living.” They offered generous lots that could accommodate rambling, custom-designed ranch-style homes and ample front yards. Would-be residents could also take advantage of one of the city’s crown jewels just to the south, the sprawling Encanto Park and its golf course.
Ultimately, developers built about 80 homes in Encanto Manor, a neighborhood still largely intact and unchanged. Well-kept homes, with welcoming front patios and yards, line the streets. Residents can walk to such neighborhood eateries as the Persian Garden Cafe or shops like Southwest Gardener.
]The centerpiece of the neighborhood remains the 1911 Dorris House, a stunning Mission Revival-style house facing Seventh Avenue that is part of Encanto Community Church. James W. Dorris, a wealthy grocer, owned more than 300 acres of land in the area and had grand plans to build a hotel and 18-holf golf course. But the project never got off the ground, and Dorris ultimately sold off land to developers for neighborhoods like Encanto Manor, city historical records show.
This neighborhood was built just before its sister neighborhood in Encanto Vista. Many of the houses in Encanto Manor fit the Ranch or Transitional Ranch style with additional detailing of shutters, awnings, and fully mature trees lining green lawns.
