The Benefits of Living in a Master-planned Community

Over the years, the ways people live and the places people live have changed and evolved with the times. People fluctuate between country and city living as needs and preferences change. In more recent times, people moved to the suburbs for more space, but gradually those suburbs had longer and longer commutes and didn’t offer the conveniences people wanted. Now, as people look for new homes in Jacksonville FL, what many are ideally searching for are master-planned communities.

The difference between a subdivision and a master-planned community is both size and infrastructure. A planned community offers a carefully balanced mix of residential homes, parks, and businesses. Unlike a regular subdivision or basic community, a master-planned community provides more immediate convenience, without sacrificing comfort or an attractive environment.

Master-planned communities are carefully constructed, right from the very beginning. From road layout to land allotments, to natural areas and designed parks, the entire community is designed and constructed to ensure careful flow and a sense of balance. With roads planned in advance, the flow is designed to limit traffic in residential areas for everyone’s safety and convenience. With dedicated areas for nature, ranging from walking trails to parks, families have easy access to the kind of environment that is in high demand within communities now. With much of daily life spent within an urban area, these natural spaces within the community become a welcoming oasis.

Regular communities and subdivisions frequently offer nicely designed neighborhoods, but the benefit of a master-planned community is the added convenience that most subdivisions lack. Potential buyers looking at new homes in Jacksonville FL want the space of a home in a community, but don’t want to be too far removed from things such as fitness centers, athletic grounds, pools, and clubhouses. Having these resort-like amenities within the community makes it much easier to take advantage of them, rather than having to commute to them.

Master-planned communities maintain a real sense of community through their careful design and ability to encourage residents to get to know each other, whether in the park areas or play areas. If you think a master-planned community may be right for you, contact Glenn Layton Homes and learn about the communities in which they build their outstanding coastal-living homes.
