People choose gated communities for many different reasons. It is a really good way to find others with the same interests in leisure and community activities along with having more privacy and control.
Gated communities and what they offer differ from non-gated communities in a lot of ways, but also have a lot of similarities. They also provide a wide range of lifestyles to choose from, with amenities to fit into the needs of the residents that reside within that subdivision. They are built for luxury, security, socializing, privacy, and small community feel.
Like non-gated neighborhoods, gated neighborhoods have single family homes in all styles, townhomes, and condos. There are pools, tennis courts, golf courses, gyms, and sometimes even private shopping centers and restaurants available.
Gated communities are secure and only give access to homeowners and guests that have been added to their visiting list. Whether there is a key pad entry or security guard, not just anybody is allowed access which provides a higher safety factor and a lack of solicitation for peace of mind.
Because of the limited access, the traffic going in and out of the community is quite a lot lower as well due to not having the through traffic trying to go around major streets. Gated communities are also less likely to have people driving too fast which provides added safety for people enjoying the outdoors and children at play.
Another great feature of the gated community is the property value of homes tend to be a little higher. Due to this and limited availability, they do not remain on the market for very long because they are highly desired.
Many gated communities are offered in Littleton. They range from high end luxury with a lot of amenities and activities to offer to more simple neighborhoods that are still secure and close access to shopping and socializing.
For a more luxurious feel there is Cherokee Ridge Estates which has a wide range of large custom-built homes. The Ravenna, a newer community, offers the same large custom-built homes and add a private golf club that is great for social events and leisure. The Polo Reserve is one to make note of for larger lots. It also has a private equestrian center and a polo club.
Still offering the great features of gated security and small community feel, but less luxury and more simplified are communities such as Roxborough Park which give access to Roxborough State Park for hiking and biking trails. Songbird is a gated community of patio homes that backs up a bird sanctuary, scenic lake, and nature.
