If you are not familiar with this neighborhood, it’s worth checking out! Agritopia is a charming community in Gilbert (Higley & Ray Rd), just north of the San Tan Mall. This one-of-a-kind community is built on a functioning urban farm with a community garden, pool, school, center and Generations (an upscale retirement home). Agritopia contains 452 lots on which the developer built single family homes, cottages and bungalows, all in the neo-traditional architectural styles popular in the early 20th century America. You will notice these homes are different from others in the area and some properties include: guest-homes, casita’s, basements and front porches. Most garages are tucked back and some are detached so the architecture of the home prevails. Homes have 2-car, 3-car and even some 4-car garages! Several properties have front porches and the fences separating yards are made of white vinyl (instead of the typical block). This type of fence was created to encourage conversation and relationships with neighbors.
The Cosmo Park/Dog-Park is on the west side of the community. This park offers a great opportunity for dogs and families to get active and socialize. The park offers a playground for kids and different areas for small and large dogs. It even has a big pond for the dogs to swim in!
The neighborhood also has two restaurants: Joe’s Farm Grill and The Coffee Shop-both of which were converted from existing farm buildings. A neighborhood taco shop and Epicenter are also in the works for this community. The idea is for residents to have everything they need at hand!
If you get a chance to you walk through Agritopia, you will notice that pathways and sidewalks connect the homes, farms, gardens, school and commercial areas to make for a simpler, yet richer life. You will notice quiet streets and see residents out and about, talking and walking/jogging and riding bikes.
