When you think of a gated community, what comes to mind? Probably things like safety, security, exclusivity, celebrities, expensive homes, and more. But what else lies beyond those gates?
1. Privacy and Security
iCloudHomes offer our residents safety that they wouldn’t experience in nearby non-gated communities. One way a gated community increases safety is by eliminating through traffic. Without drivers passing through the gated community, traffic is restricted to residents and guests. This makes it safer for children to walk or play near streets, and also reduces traffic accidents. Gated communities with security staff also restrict access to pedestrians, which may be able to reduce the chance of vandalism, theft and other crimes.
This is clearly a beautiful thing if you’ve ever lived outside a gated community and dealt with crime and/or solicitors. Of course, there is a cost associated.
And there’s no guarantee you won’t be the victim of crime in a gated community. The gate only acts as a deterrent, not a foolproof solution. So you should still keep your doors locked and valuables out of sight.
Also note that we have automated door lock with thumb, key , number lock and an automated gate with a keypad, and live guards. The latter will be more expensive, but also provide much more security.
2. Better utilities and no maintenance headaches
With gated communities come back up power, treated water facilities, eco based sewage treatment plant with zero maintenance, solar-powered heating systems, and many other essential amenities which are very important to live life comfortably. There are also concierge personnel hired to maintain these facilities which is a big relief for the home buyers.
3. Comfort and Luxury
Gated communities offer a wide range of amenities like Tennis court, Tree house, Rock climbing, Gym, Park, Swimming pool, Yoga, SuperMarket etc. There are also cafes and badminton courts in a few communities and some of them even offer golf carts for the older people to move around the campus. With the busy modern day life, one can avail all these facilities within the gated community.
One of the very convenient pros of living in a gated community is the access to a number of amenities. Gated communities usually offer facilities such as a golf course, tennis courts, football pitches and more, as well as swimming pools and gyms. This is a perk you would benefit from a gated community living which would otherwise cost you an exorbitant amount of money. Having such a well-integrated community with such shared facilities makes for a comfortable living.
4. GREENER ENVIRONMENT
Gated communities have a greener environment in general. Once again, with the absence of moving traffic or outsiders, gated communities are far less susceptible to pollution. With its regular maintenance and controlled facilities, a breath of fresh air is always at your doorstep.
5. A SAFE HAVEN FOR CHILDREN
One of the greatest advantages of living in a gated community is for the families with kids. While the benefits can be reaped by both singles and families alike, the safety and security in gated communities are especially good for the little ones with aspirations for exploring. Since there are no open roads with moving traffic, it is safer to allow your kids to play outdoors; you wouldn’t have to worry about them bumping into strangers either. With communal areas set for the kids to play, it is also easier for parents to monitor them.
6. NO SOLICITORS
Another addition to the benefits of living in a gated community is that you won’t have to worry about solicitors anymore. The fact that you can restrict or allow entry to whoever you want into the community makes it a safe place from solicitations. This increased sense of freedom and control is a great plus to have and can save you from the havoc and frustration that come from solicitors such as salesmen or unauthorised people asking for donations.
7. A BETTER COMMUNITY LIFE
Since you live near people who have the same interests as you, you’ll find that the sense of community you have in a gated neighborhood is so much more integrated than nicer than you’ll typically find in other places, such as a town or city.Private gated community residents share a mentality. When it comes to home ownership, they want to be surrounded by like-minded people with similar values. Odds are you’re less likely to encounter inconsiderate neighbors—and with property regulations and HOAs, you can expect curb appeals that are cohesive and aesthetically-pleasing. Also, shared spaces, clubhouses, and regular planned parties promote a camaraderie not often seen in traditional neighborhoods.
8. ACTIVITIES FOR CHILDREN
Families where both parents work and grandparents aren’t available. Families homemakers do a lot because partners are working long hours (or are stuck in traffic), to be able to afford the lifestyle they live.Most families have two working parents and it’s impossible to monitor your child constantly or have no time to spend with their extra curricular activities like sports,dance,music and even in their tuition for education purposes. Here we have various trainers for sports and arts. And also we have specific rooms for tuitions, clinics, day care, crèche etc.
9. ACTIVITIES FOR OLDER PEOPLE
When old age is nearing, one tends to lose the ability to walk, talk and hear and slowly they become like a child. Every person who lived their life honestly and straightforwardly, look for the mercy of others, to fulfill their day to day needs.
At iCloudHomes, we recognize that the benefits of staying socially active, connected and engaged will last far into the future for our residents. When you move to our retirement neighborhood, you’ll enjoy choosing from a wide variety of life enrichment programs, events and outings, beautiful common areas to catch up with friends, and access to health and wellness programs all designed to keep you happy and thriving.
Here they won’t feel they are alone if their children are abroad or on a business trip.
