Living in a Luxury Community

What are Luxury Communities?

What is the definition of a “luxury community”? Everyone defines luxury differently. But luxury communities do share characteristics and features that make them desirable to homeowners who’ve reached a certain stage in their lives and careers.

If you found your way to this article, you’ve probably achieved an income threshold that makes it possible for you to buy a home somewhere above your standard subdivision.

Investing in a home in a luxury community means that you’re willing to pay more to have a particular lifestyle. Luxury communities often offer a number of perks and amenities that you can’t find in other neighborhoods.

Luxury Communities Offer Plenty of Amenities.

It may seem obvious, but homeowners in these communities and neighborhoods enjoy a number of amenities not traditionally found elsewhere.

For many homeowners, living on or near a golf course would be a dream come true. The luxury community surrounding the Greenville Country Club and golf course at Thornblade provide residents of these South Carolina neighborhoods with the opportunity to hit the links year round.

Golf course neighborhoods also offer other amenities typical to these communities: restaurants, tennis courts, swimming pools, fitness centers and walking trails.

For example, the Greenville Country Club also features 17 lighted tennis courts, upscale and casual dining options, and 9,500 square feet of pool space. The twin newly designed pools with decorative railings and walls at the Greenville Country Club are exactly the touches you should expect from high-end luxury communities.

Another common feature is their close proximity to water. Although most people know about the mountains of the South Carolina Upstate, our region features a number of lakes and natural rivers as well.

Notably, some of the luxury communities where you may consider buying a home are located near Greenville’s Lake Keowee, Lake Jocassee and Lake Robinson.

Luxury Homes are Located in Luxury Communities .

As the buyer or seller of a luxury home in Greenville, SC, you need to realize that just because your home is luxurious doesn’t necessarily mean you live in a luxury community.

You need a real estate agent who is familiar with the neighborhood to make sure you’re not simply buying an expensive home in a regular neighborhood.

At Wilson Associates, one of the things that sets us apart when it comes to working with our clients is our deep knowledge of the Greenville, SC community and surrounding area. We work as a team to make sure that our homebuyers and sellers truly understand the character of the neighborhoods and communities where they live.

Before you buy a luxury home, you’ll undoubtedly have questions. What are the prices of nearby homes? What are its amenities? Does it have a quality Homeowners Association (HOA)?

Wilson’s expert agents can answer all of these questions in your search for a home in a luxury community.

Homes of Exceptional Quality and Craftsmanship

As the buyer or seller of a luxury home in Greenville, SC, you need to realize that just because your home is luxurious doesn’t necessarily mean you live in a luxury community.

While you can certainly make the mistake of buying a luxurious home in a neighborhood that is far from it, the far more common error those who are looking for homes in luxury communities make is to purchase a home that is not of exceptional quality and craftsmanship.

When it comes to luxury homes in Greenville, SC, or any neighborhood across the country, you will find both historic homes designed by well-known architects as well as newer, custom constructions.

Among the upscale neighborhoods in the South Carolina Upstate, you’ll find a range of home styles, age, and construction. For example, the Hampton-Pinckney neighborhood is famous for its historic homes, while the Montebello neighborhood, whose homes take inspiration from Italian and French country architectural designs, features newer homes and constructions.

When it comes to shopping for a home in a luxury community it all depends on your tastes as a buyer. Many of the estates Wilson sells combine the best of both worlds: the unparalleled architectural style of Greenville’s best historic neighborhoods with all the modern conveniences.

Beautiful Landscapes

Luxury communities are designed to be as visually appealing as possible. Whether it’s landscaped parks or simply the grandeur of the surrounding homes, when you’re in the market for a home in a luxury community, you want great scenery.

The landscape and green spaces in your luxury community should build a sense of community. When your children and your neighbor’s children enjoy the same spacious playgrounds, when you picnic at the same neighborhood parks, you are given greater opportunity to get to know others in your community.

Wilson Associates’ real estate agents understand the importance of community. We know that when you buy a house, particularly in a luxury community, you’re not simply buying a place to live. We want you to be thrilled not only with your home, but also with your neighbors and surroundings.

Social Activities and Events in Luxury Communities

Luxury communities should provide other opportunities for you to get to know your neighbors.

Many luxury communities offer amenities beyond thoughtfully cultivated landscapes, swimming pools, golf courses, elegantly constructed homes, and nearby lakes and rivers.

One of the most important things you might look for in a luxury community are the social activities and events that your new neighborhood offers. Book clubs, summer camps for the kids, and parties are all a critical part of the experience of living in a luxury community.

Does your luxury community host an annual Cinco de Mayo celebration for you and your neighbors? Does it have a yearly Easter Egg hunt? Does it have a neighborhood New Year’s Eve party in your golf course’s clubhouse?

Events and social activities are an important part of living in a luxury community.

Each Day Living in a Luxury Community Brings You Calm.

Luxury communities should provide other opportunities for you to get to know your neighbors.

For all the reasons mentioned above, each morning that you wake up in your luxury community should fill you with a sense of serenity and calm.

Luxury communities are usually significantly more safe and secure than other neighborhoods. These types of neighborhoods have less foot traffic because usually only your neighbors and their guests have access to them.

These characteristics allow you to relax and feel at peace in your home and surrounding neighborhood.
