Over 55, but not over the hill?  With its continued education lectures, varied activities and resort-style setting, this Tucson active adult community could be well worth considering. Nestled in the gorgeous Rincon Mountains, these upscale Southwest homes are easy to maintain and most are within walking distance of the Community Center.

DSC_0068Founded by Henry Koffler, former president of the University of Arizona, almost half of the 264 home sites have been completed including an assisted living facility which can accommodate up to 14 residents.

In addition Academy Village boasts a Wellness Center with a nurse on site and offers services such as Health Assessments and Screening, Phlebotomy, Blood Pressure Monitoring, Injections, Case Management and a Health Resource Library.

For people on the go, a variety of activities are available at the Fitness Center including various Fitness Classes, Tennis, Hiking , Aqua Aerobics and a separate area with workout equipment. Pilates and Massage are available on a fee basis.

The heart of Academy Village lies in the Arizona Senior Academy which offers a weekly schedule of lectures, concerts, art shows, movies and study groups. With strong ties to the University of Arizona, the Academy is able to draw on these resources for private lectures and events. Check the Village News for weekly activities.

Originally developed by Doucette Homes, the Dabdoub family has recently inked a deal to complete the remaining lots and add at least one more assisted living facility. The landscaping will be getting a facelift and a new sign added at the entrance. Doucette Homes will still retain options on a portion of the remaining lots and will remain involved in the community.

Visit the community at 13701 E. Langtry Lane, Tucson, AZ 85747 or contact Rob & Catherine Hallberg for a complete list of new homes and re-sales. With a variety of floor plans and a lifestyle for those who want to continue learning and exploring all life has to offer, this could be the place for you.
