Gated Communities Homes for Sale

Many prospective homebuyers prefer to buy in a gated community because of the added security and its exclusivity. And while it isn’t always the case, many gated communities consist of homes with similar statures, color pallets, and designs, which for some buyers is preferable to the hodgepodge of homes you may find outside a gated community. Southwest Florida homes in gated communities vary, some with a manned guard shack, and others with electronic gates. If you don’t mind HOA fees, a home in a Southwest Florida gated community might be right for you.

Generally speaking, gated community homes include desirable shared amenities like a community clubhouse and a heated swimming pool. In fact, some gated communities resemble mini resorts with a clubhouse, swimming pool, fitness center, business center, and more. Gated community homes also include condominium and townhome communities for those seeking lower-maintenance lifestyles. 

Specific Southwest Florida gated home communities include a long list of incredible options in Fort Myers. A few of the many Fort Myers gated communities include Colonial Farms, St. Charles Harbour, Jonathan Harbour, Esplanade Lake Club, Enclave at Fiddlesticks, Marblehead Manor, Tidewater Island, and Terabella.
