Home for sale, designed by the architect that designed the Arizona Inn

Merritt Starkweather, FAIA was a well-known, prolific Tucson architect from the 1920s to the 1970s. He designed area schools (Carrillo, Drachman, Bonillas to name a few), homes, and resorts. Many of these homes can be seen in the El Encanto Estates neighborhood.

Merritt Starkweather also designed the well-known, historic Arizona Inn located at 2200 E. Elm Street. The Arizona Inn was commissioned by Isabella Greenway (Arizona’s first congresswoman) and was built in 1930. The inn was designed to feature the beautiful outdoor courtyards, both large and small in scale.
