The Random Farms community is a wonderful place for families to call home. With its quiet streets and park-like feel, it is an ideal neighborhood. Random Farms was originally subdivided from the former Millwood Road estate of Lady Gabriel, a benefactor of Chappaqua schools, Northern Westchester Hospital and various other organizations. It has its own homeowners association and many amenities, including a pool, tennis and basketball courts and a clubhouse. One family that calls it home since 2015 is the Agarwala family.
The family of four consists of Sandip, who works in finance, Monica, who works in product management for Mastercard, Kiran, age 9 and Kayla, age 7. Monica grew up in Chappaqua while Sandip hails from Dutchess County. Monica always thought of Chappaqua as a great place to raise a family and when it was time to settle, the Agarwalas chose Chappaqua for its proximity to family, great schools and its strong sense of community.
“There are so many things we love about Random Farms,” says Monica. “We have a pool, tennis courts and a basketball court, which we use throughout the summer. The North County Trail is also within walking distance of us and we love going for walks, and bike rides there, practically year-round.”
Speaking with Monica, you get a sense of what makes the Random Farms neighborhood so close-knit. “When we moved here, we immediately met a half dozen families with kids about the same age as our children. We were able to make friends easily and our children met many of their classmates before they started school. Since the houses are close together, we often make impromptu playdates and the kids spend snow days sledding in our yards.”
Random Farms boasts activities year-round including an annual block party at the end of summer and Halloween festivities in which many homes are transformed into haunted houses. Families also gather together for pizza before trick-or-treating begins. As Monica says, “For families with young kids, there is so much to do and you can always count on bumping into your friends and neighbors.”
