10 Cool Things We Saw at the 2014 Modern Phoenix Home Tour of Arcadia

Modern Phoenix's 2014 home tour found Midcentury Modern fans trekking through greater Arcadia on Sunday, April 6, to take a peek into homes with vintage (and curb) appeal.
With 16 residential stops and a nice sampling of Arizona's most notable architects, including Paolo Soleri, Al Beadle, and Ralph Haver, the sold-out event featured homes and condos that ranged from full-on remodels to well preserved gems. Here are the 10 coolest things -- from cement blocks to a cantilever porch -- that Jackalope Ranch spotted during the must-attend event.

While it was difficult to get a feel for the interiors of Arcadia Green's 1967 patio homes, located north of Thomas Road off 48th Street, (many looked like they've been renovated throughout the years without an eye toward the original Spanish Midcentury Modern style), the clubhouse was home to light fixtures that made us smile. Shaped like strawberries dangling from the ceiling, these bright red lights complemented minty green beams.
