Fulton Homes is beginning work on Barney Farms, a 550-acre master-planned community that will include 1,700 homes. The development is located on the northeast corner of Queen Creek Road and Signal Butte Road.
This groundbreaking represents a new standard for large-scale communities in the southeast Valley. We worked hard to secure the land, and then to develop something more than homes — a vision that represents quality construction, family, recreation and vast open spaces.
Fulton Homes has spent the past three years designing and preparing for developing the land in the southeast Valley. Homebuyers have been asking for more amenities, and Fulton Homes delivers at Barney Farms, with 22 acres of a deep-water lake running through the center of the community that features catch-and-release fishing and small-boat launching. A total of 114 acres will be designated for open space, including an 11-acre park.
Other amenities at Barney Farms include an aquatic center, a clubhouse, a massive lakeside park, a neighborhood trail system and several sports courts for basketball, pickleball, bocce ball and volleyball.
COVID taught us that families can work from home. And now that the commute is no longer an issue, homebuyers can venture further out of the city center and telecommute, plus enjoy all the amenities this premiere master-planned community has to offer.
The vision behind Barney Farms was to build an affordable neighborhood for families, with four different series of home plans available ranging from 1,691 to 1,972 square feet. Prices range from the high $300,000s up to $700,000. The homes include a variety of room options, such as guest suites, hobby rooms and offices. All homes come with a standard three-car garage.
While the homes are under construction, a temporary sales office is open at Fulton Homes’ nearby Ironwood Crossing Community.
