Gated Westchase homes are appealing for their added privacy, security and exclusivity. Most gated neighborhoods try to maintain a higher standard of living and limit the amount of traffic on their streets by providing an access code to residents, or by having a guard at the gate to check-in and monitor traffic. The reward for utilizing such a system is that it can help to keep property values at a higher level.
While the security is valuable, residents of gated neighborhoods are restricted in certain ways. Generally, they have to use the same service providers as their neighbors when it comes to home repair and contract work, so personnel, trucks and noise are kept to a minimum. In addition, there are costs associated with gates and guards, which are reflected in slightly higher homeowner’s association dues for residents.
As with any amenity, it is important to review the homeowner’s association guidelines, maintenance requirements, benefits and fees before purchasing a gated Westchase home.
Although some neighborhoods are situated behind the gates of other neighorhoods (such as Village Green), the primary gated communities of Westchase include:
