Homes in Academy Village. Residents of the Academy Village own their own homes, each with a covered patio to enjoy the beauty of the natural open space in and around the community. Homes range in size from one bedroom to three bedrooms with a study, all have enclosed garages, and some have casitas. The strong sense of community is enhanced with single-family homes arranged in clusters of four, and adjoining town-homes–four to six in each complex.
Half of the acreage in the community has been preserved as open space and residents enjoy the abundant cacti, yucca, ocotillo and creosote bushes. Birds are plentiful and sightings from one’s patio may include desert wildlife such as coyotes, javelinas and bobcats that occasionally wander by. Most homes have beautiful views of the Rincon Mountains that flank two sides of the community. Hiking paths throughout the open space have been created by volunteer residents to provide residents with lovely hikes through the desert and hills.
