If you are planning to move to the Ponte Vedra Beach area you may want to consider a gated community. Gated communities vary in their "gatedness". Some are "manned 24/7, some have electronic gate entries, some have a combination of both. Often I have people ask me why there are so many gated communities in Ponte Vedra Beach. The concept of a a Gated Community is more focused on exclusivity and prestige than it is for "safety" only. Having many gated communities is not a reflection of a high crime area, quite the opposite is true. There are 20 Gated Communities in Ponte Vedra with various deed restrictions, fees, and other requirements for living within the community. Some communities have only single family homes and others may have a combination of condominiums, town houses, patio/garden style homes and single family homes all within the same complex. Some Gated communities have golf courses and country clubs associated with them and some do not. Gated communities may also provide other amenities including fitness, swimming, tennis, boating, walking trails and clubhouses. It's all about lifestyle. It's all about what you are looking for in your community.
