Guide to Gated Communities in North Carolina

When it comes to privacy, security, and a close-knit neighborhood, gated communities are unmatched. With over 25,000 gated communities in the United States alone, there’s a perfect location for everyone.100 Best Place to Live

Privacy and Security

Peace of mind is the top priority of these communities. Gated entrances, private roads, and security systems keep neighborhoods safe year-round. Many places even have security personnel that patrols the streets. 

Social activities

Being part of an exclusive community means that neighbors get to know each other well. Onsite amenities, such as clubhouses and pools, foster these close relationships. Staff members also organize themed dinners, holiday events, and special interest groups.

Top-Notch Amenities

Gated communities offer updated facilities. Pools, fitness rooms, and tennis courts are generally found onsite. Those who have particular interests such as golf or sailing can find gated communities that cater specifically to those activities.

Family-Friendly Environment

Gated communities are diverse—they are a sanctuary to young families and empty-nesters alike. From playgrounds to lounges, these communities offer amenities to entertain residents of any age. 

Further, these amenities add value to the neighborhood, which benefit homeowners in these communities.

The Cove At Celo Mountain

Burnsville, NC
Lots From $31K

The Cove at Celo Mountain in North Carolina boasts beautiful surroundings, ingrained history and unlimited adventure right outside your doorstep. Located in Yancey County, just 45 minutes from Asheville, NC, this area was once occupied by the Cherokee Indians. In the 1700s, Irish, English and Scottish immigrants then settled in the mountainous terrain and fertile river valleys. The land was mined from the mid 1800s throughout the mid 1900s for precious minerals. During the 1900s, logging resulted in new hardwood forests and dense shrubbery. Our picturesque lots have something for every mountaineer!

The Cove at Celo Mountain is heralded as one of the most beautiful mountain properties in Western North Carolina, and special care has been taken to preserve the abundance of natural amenities found here. These include crystal-clear streams and rivers, entrancing birdsong, trout ponds, towering trees and so much more! Find new ways to explore on our manicured hiking trails, or relax and enjoy the scenery at one of our outdoor parks. Don’t ignore the call of the mountains any longer!
