The Schoolyard – Live Smart

Pepper Viner New Construction

The SchoolYard Sign

The Schoolyard is where the Wrightstown Elementary School was located at 8950 E Wrightstown Rd, Tucson, AZ 85715
There are a total of 56 home sites in the community.

We were out last Saturday checking on several new construction communities around town. The Schoolyard was the first one we drove by with actual construction. Initially the plan was to take a few photos around the community, the sign out front, the models, etc. We didn’t intend to take the time to go in and view the models.

The plan changed when I got back in the car laughing about the 3 & 4 bedrooms available. The initial drive through brought thoughts of Starter homes or Semi Retired.

The Schoolyard playground

I was thinking the later till we saw the playground, which was a clue they weren’t targeting Senior living. Our best guess was 2 bedrooms max based on the size of the lots and what the homes looked like on the outside. They were nice, but they looked small.

We decided to go through the models and see if these were teeny tiny bedrooms like some were building a decade ago. I don’t consider a 10 x 10 room a real bedroom (sorry, that’s just my take on bedrooms).

Pleasantly Surprised

the schoolyard models
There are five home styles available all named after famous authors.
Four of the homes are single story, the Webster is 2 story.
The two models were the Thoreau and Dickens.

They were very nice and felt spacious when you entered. I wouldn’t go so far as to call them Tardis like, but they definitely felt larger on the inside than they looked from the street.

Live Smart

There’s a reason this is on the sign to the community. Here is a list of Smart Living items in the homes.

  • iPad mini to control the features of your home
  • RTI automation systems
  • “NEST” learning thermostat
  • Security system with 1 year monitoring
  • Smart entry lock you can lock or unlock from anywhere
  • USB outlets for your smart devices
  • Wi-Fi router ready for your internet provider
  • Night light switch in master bedroom
  • IP camera at the entry door so you can see who is there on your smart phone
