Buying a Port St. Lucie Gated Home 

For those considering a move to Port Saint Lucie, living in a gated community is perhaps one of the most aspirational lifestyles. Gated communities add an extra layer of security, and can offer residents peace of mind as well as a sense of community between neighbors. Port Saint Lucie is home to several different gated communities in various layouts, sizes, and price ranges. When you consider the pros and cons, you may find that living in a Port Saint Lucie gated community is exactly the right choice for you and your family. 

Living in a Port Saint Lucie Gated Community

Many people are quick to seize the opportunity to live in a gated community, and the reasons for that are very understandable. In addition to an increased sense of security when compared to other traditional neighborhoods, gated communities offer more privacy, as only residents and their guests are allowed to enter. Most gated communities offer amenities, ranging from a shared clubhouse and pool to a gym, golf courses, dock access, game rooms, billiard rooms, and the list goes on and on. Residents will also enjoy a sense of peace resulting from no unnecessary traffic and therefore no speeding cars. Perhaps most importantly for many people is that gated communities are one of the safest places for children to live or for grandchildren to grow up visiting.

Top Port Saint Lucie Gated Communities 

Because there are numerous gated communities in Port Saint Lucie, it’s impossible to list them all. However, there are a few that worth noting:

Riverland - Homebuyers over the age of 55 that choose to buy a single family home in Riverland will enjoy the safety of a gated community as well as the neighborhood’s world-class amenities. Riverland is situated in a perfect location that gives residents easy access to major roadways, beaches, shopping, and dining.

Portofino Isles - Built in the mid-2000s, Portofino Isles is a gated community that features many interior lakes, and you are guaranteed to see gorgeous water views should you purchase one of the lakefront properties. The amenities at Portofino Isles include 24-hour security, a community clubhouse, heated pools, a playground for children, and several walking paths and trails.

Sawgrass Lakes - Designed on 450 acres of sprawling Florida land, the gated community of Sawgrass Lakes is home to five unique neighborhoods, all of which were developed around a one hundred acre lake. Residents can opt to pay an additional fee for boat or RV storage, and Whispering Pines Park is only two short miles away.

Pros and Cons to Living in a Port Saint Lucie Gated Community

Before you commit to owning a home in a Port Saint Lucie Gated Community, you should first consider all of the pros and cons.

The Advantages 

Increased sense of security. This is perhaps the biggest reason people choose to live in a gated community. Gated communities provide a strong sense of security, and many are manned by guards or patrols 24 hours a day. Unlike traditional neighborhoods, gated communities only allow residents and their guests to enter, and you’ll never be subjected to unwanted solicitors knocking on your door.

A sense of community. A gated community offers more opportunities for neighbors to connect. Between shared areas and amenities, it’s easier for residents to mingle and build meaningful friendships with one another.

A greener environment. Because gated communities are exclusive to residents and their guests, there is less traffic and therefore less pollution and unnecessary traffic inside those gates.

The Disadvantages 

High HOA fees. While gated communities offer tremendous benefits and amenities, all of it comes at a cost. Many communities require high HOA fees to be paid monthly in order to keep the common areas, landscaping, and amenities up and running.

Restrictions and regulations. Many gated communities have strict restrictions and regulations on the ways in which residents can modify their properties and homes.

Guardhouse frustrations. While increased security is one of the biggest benefits of living in a gated community, it can be equally frustrating trying to grant access to guests by way of the central guardhouse. You may have trouble ensuring repairmen, family, and friends are able to get through the gate.
