Any street in Davis with a Lord of The Rings inspired name is part of Village Homes. To be more specific, this uniquely innovative neighborhood is made up of the 225 homes and 20 apartment units that lie on the 70 acres West of Arlington, with Russell Blvd. as it’s Southern border. While there are 13 streets for auto access, the best way to get around Village homes is by using the pedestrian/bike path network that weaves through the neighborhood. Developed by Mike and Judy Corbett in the 1970s Village Homes features:
