Gated Communities

Gated communities are designed to offer privacy, security, and a feeling of community. One of the many benefits of living in a private gated community is controlled access entry. Gatehouses are usually manned and offer 24-hour security. There are gated communities for every lifestyle, such as retirement, golf, waterfront, mountain, and equestrian.

Amenities typically include clubhouses, fitness centers, swimming pools, golf courses, tennis courts, and walking trails. Luxury gated communities sometimes include private airstrips, resorts, and five-star restaurants. From established master-planned communities with luxury homes to new gated communities with customizable new construction homes, your search for the perfect community starts here.
