Santa Fe, NM, April 06, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Agritopia, a neighborhood in Gilbert, AZ just outside of Phoenix, offers a comfortable and relaxing alternative to the traditional American suburb. There, signs of life are not limited to TVs glowing out of living rooms, but include free-range lambs, chickens scratching in the dirt, and rows of tomatoes and other veggies that homeowners can pick and eat for dinner. Even with all this, though, the community remains well-maintained, and is a great "green" choice for individuals looking for a new place to call home.
This type of community, according to Santa Fe Exclusives, shifts the focus from luxury and amenities like pools, tennis courts, and spas, to other, more environmentally-friendly tasks. Activities like farming, gardening, and quality landscaping not only help bring the entire community together, but also provide scenic spaces that are a great fit for upscale and luxurious homes.
Ben Wyffels, a resident of the area who works as an engineer for Intel, believes that the emphasis on farming and agriculture provides the highlight of his week. "To be able to walk down the street with my kids and get fresh, healthy food is amazing," he said. Despite that, his home didn't cost more than other similar houses in the area.
Santa Fe exclusives believes that the type of lifestyle offered by these "Agrihoods" is perfect for single individuals who are either retired or semi-retired. They are low stress because of the shared maintenance and upkeep, while the cohesive community makes it easy for individuals to keep in touch and never get bored.
The real estate pros also believe that a place like Agritopia would provide plenty of great business opportunities. Small scale businesses are certainly sustainable there, and many of those who live in the area are consultants or run moderate business practices right from their home. The low stress, low maintenance aspects can make it easier for individuals to focus on work without having to commute to the office every day.
