Agat Real Estate
Agat - Experience Time Immemorial
Perhaps the most spectacular view of the sunset on the whole island can be seen at Ga'an Point which is located in Agat. Vibrant colors fill the sky of this western seaside village south of Apra Harbor, which had a projected population of around 6,602 in 2010.
Agat was a very peaceful village where all the values of a close-knit community could be found. History changed this when the Spaniard Miguel Lopez de Legazpi claimed Guam for Spain in 1565. More than a century later, between 1680 and 1684, Agat was founded as a military garrison with the purpose of indoctrinating the native Chamorro. From then on Agat has valiantly withstood trials including the destruction of the village during World War II. With help from the U.S. Military, Agat was rebuilt and raised from the ashes like a phoenix, thus the new seaside village came into being. Fittingly, the new Agat in Sumay is home to a large U.S. Navy base, making Agat village and neighboring Santa Rita and Apra Heights perfect places to find off-base housing for those in the military.
When you choose to reside in Agat, you'll find yourself welcomed by its warm people, a majority of which are local islanders. Your home will be close to a branch of the Guam Public Library among several other conveniences. Village attractions include Sagan Bisita, a festive night market located next to the community center which features local food and produce, the Talifak Bridge, also known as the Old Spanish Bridge, which was used during the Galleon Trade, Apaca Point, with a WWII pillbox built into the rock sticking out to the water, and Ga'an Point, where you can find two camouflaged Japanese bunkers and gun posts, both part of the War in the Pacific National Historic Park, and of course the Agat Small Boat Harbor, home to the popular Janz By The Sea restaurant located right on the marina.
With its easy going seaside island lifestyle and proud history, Agat is a village for those who want to live in an area with a slow pace and plenty of natural beauty in its oceanside setting. It’s a village where you can experience time stand still.
Real estate in this area consists primarily of residential single-family homes, rural lots and larger tracts with some retail and commercial buildings along Route No. 2, the main highway that runs along the scenic coastline with views of the Philippine Sea. Also along Route No. 2 you can find Agat Inn on the Bay, located right on the beach. It has been reported there are plans to convert the bayside TLA hotel into condominiums.
Within the village and neighboring Santa Rita and Apra Heights, you will find many scattered clusters of homes, some with beautiful ocean and harbor views. You will also find two Navy housing subdivisions, Santa Rita Hyundai subdivision, as well as the Agat Village subdivision. The area is home to an abundance of schools, including Southern High School, Oceanview High School, Harry S. Truman Elementary School, Marcial A. Sablan Elementary School, Willie McCool DODEA Elementary School, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Catholic School and Southern Christian Academy.
For serious investors there are several large tracts of land in the area with ocean views or ocean frontage and great potential for single-family, condominium, apartment and/or hotel-resort development in the coming years. The village also has suitable zoning in some areas for industrial and commercial development. Let us at Pacific Rim Realty help you find the right property to meet your investment goals.
