Some folks are looking to find a luxury home in a gated community. Certainly, the privacy and security are increased in gated communities. But, Denver has relatively low crime anyway so that extra level of security may not be necessary but still desirable.
Luxury Home Communities
There are two different kinds of gated community for luxury home communities. Some have automated gates and some have attendants to manually open and close gates. Obviously, the homeowner association fees are generally higher in communities with gate attendants. In some communities like Cherry Hills Farm in Cherry Hills Village, there is no gate but there is a 24 hour security service usually stationed at the community entrance.
