Village Homes Real Estate
Located in West Davis, Village Homes is part of the Davis Joint Unified School District and includes a community center, day care facilities, a swimming pool, small offices, and a restaurant with an outdoor eating area. Built in the 1970s, Village Homes represents the achievement of a dream for a more eco-friendly and sustainable way of life.
This 70-acre community harnesses the natural resources of the area, specifically storm water and solar energy. With 225 homes and 20 apartment units, the community utilizes solar panels for heating, which are oriented around common areas in the rear of the buildings. All streets are oriented east-west to enable homes to make full use of the sun. Natural drainage collects water to irrigate common areas and supports the cultivation of edible foods for consumption by residents.
The area has an extensive system of pedestrian and bike paths that run through common areas, promoting this form of travel over cars. There are two large parks, extensive greenbelts, two vineyards, several orchards, and two large common gardening areas for residents to enjoy. The community is part of the Village Homeowner’s Association and many of the streets in this neighborhood are named after places and characters from The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings books. In all, it is a unique and wonderful neighborhood located near all of the modern amenities that Davis and the greater Sacramento area have to offer.
