If you are looking for city conveniences while still maintaining a measure of privacy that can only be found in the country, you need to take a look at Pima Acres.  This community of custom built homes each feature lots that are over an acre in size, a luxury you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else in the Phoenix metropolitan area.  Each of the 140 homes was built between 1993 and 2008, and are surrounded by desert and open space.  Pima Acres’ location provides easy access to golf, shopping, Excelling schools, the Scottsdale Airpark, and the Loop 101 Freeway which can easily take you anywhere in the Valley you wish to go.
