Do you have your dream home already designed in your mind? We know most people do, and there is a lot to think about in terms of what turns a house into a home. Look, style, gated community, neighborhood, schools, and so on; the list is a lengthy one. Most new home-buyers would rank ‘neighborhood’ as a very important factor when thinking of buying a new home. Some areas may have a few of your items checked off, but not all. Maybe it’s close to great schools and shopping, but the neighborhood is less than ideal. A gated community allows home-buyers great options, safety, and amenities in a way that standard neighborhoods cannot.
Safety in a Gated Community
A gated community lets you live your life at ease because of its many inherent safety features. There is a reduced amount of traffic, so children are free to be themselves and roam the neighborhood without fear of heavy or reckless traffic. The reduced traffic will also allow for a quieter neighborhood, offering more peace and relaxation in your home. The amount of solicitors will also be fewer in a gated community. Because of the gates, solicitors are generally discouraged to enter, so you can live life uninterrupted.
Lifestyle in Mind
Most gated communities have stricter policies that residents must abide by to live there. Similar to HOA regulations, residents typically have to keep their home and surrounding property up to certain standards. This will ensure that your neighborhood looks beautiful and well-kept year round. Many gated communities also feature golf courses, tennis courts, or other amenities not available in a standard neighborhood. Some offer coordinated activities and clubhouses, so your family can stay active and make new friends in the community. The Highland Court community
in Holladay, Utah features the expansive Murray Park
, just three miles from the neighborhood. The park has a large outdoor amphitheater, playing fields, tennis courts, playgrounds, walking trails, picnic tables, and the popular Aquatic Center with a mega-slide. This park also hosts a weekly farmer’s market during the summer months, and multiple golf courses are within a five-mile radius of Highland Court. Photo Use By Jere Keys
