Farnsworth is a trusted name in Mesa, Arizona and we are the pioneers of retirement 55+ communities in Mesa and the East Valley. We have served Valley residents for over 60 years with integrity
Our first community, designed to meet the needs of active adults, began when Joseph A. Farnsworth and his son Ross, broke ground for their first development. Dreamland Villa started in 1958 with a parcel of 200 acres of land near the corner of Main and Higley. The grand opening was celebrated in January of 1959, a full year prior to the opening of Sun City by Del Webb.
Farnsworths began building their dream on borrowed time from their regular jobs, working nights and weekends to build the homes. Ross personally dug the water line trenches that brought water from a well and storage tank, to meet the need for supplying water in the desert.
Their pioneering vision set a standard for age-controlled community living, as Farnsworth led the way for the growth of retirement communities in the Valley of the Sun. Needed amenities and services were conveniently located within each community where residents participated in community centered activities, events.

The active retirement community of Dreamland Villa was designed as a 55+ community made up of nineteen sections and housing over five thousand individuals. Building in Dreamland Villa continued through 1978. It was located in an unincorporated area of Maricopa County, and was a considerable distance from the City of Mesa borders. Even though Mesa has expanded and now surrounds Dreamland Villa, the community remains a county governed island, separate from the city.
Construction began on Sunland Village, in 1974 and was completed in 1984. Sunland Village is an active 55+ community featuring single family homes and condos, which comprises 2,685 homes and approximately 4,000 residents. This active lifestyle community boasts a golf course, and tennis courts. Additional amenities include three swimming pools, a Jacuzzi, and whirlpool, hobby and craft rooms and activity clubs.
Sunland Village East is the third of four 55+active adult communities and was built by Farnsworth between 1984 and 2001. It features 1657 single family homes and 780 condos. A public golf course is available within the Sunland Village East community. There are also two separate pool and fitness complexes, professional tennis courts, bocce ball, pickle ball courts, shuffle board, horseshoe pits, a volleyball court, and softball field located within the community. Custom neighborhood features enhance the community and surrounding areas. For example, their auditorium is used for first class Concert Series performances including a large dance floor, full kitchen and plenty of space for meetings and activities.
A view of the Superstition Mountains sets the stage for Sunland Springs Village, the fourth Farnsworth Active 55+ community of 900 acres. There are single detached homes and single-level garden condos built surrounding a 27-hole executive golf course. The community of 2,890 properties is home to over 4,000 retirees. Sunland Springs Village is home to a top rated golf course, 2 recreation centers, pools, fitness facilities and even RV storage.
