Benefits of Living in a Master-planned Community

There are new home communities and then there are master-planned new home communities. Both have their perks, but there’s something particularly nice about living in a master-planned community. Life isn’t just a great brand new home; it’s more like living in a resort year round. With the variety of amenities, you’ll find it easy to stay active, have fun, and potentially make new friends. Anyone looking at homes in Hanover VA should explore our Glen Royal section of Harper’s Mill to understand the many benefits of living in a master-planned community (MPC).

The benefits aren’t just about fun amenities. There are other important factors that make an MPC a solid choice. For one thing, they tend to offer more safety and security. In some cases they are actually gated and may have guards patrolling. If nothing else, they tend to be located in better areas of the town or city and also have less through-traffic, which allows residents to get out and enjoy the community more easily and safely.

Purchasing a home in an MPC is also a safe financial choice. While housing markets do rise and fall, an MPC tends to retain more of its value, thanks to the amenities and security. People and the community are invested in keeping the community as appealing as possible and there will always be people interested in purchasing a home with on-site amenities that give them more ways to enjoy life and spend time with their family.

While some people worry that an MPC will be too far out of town to get around easily, many of these communities are actually being built with ease of access in mind. They know that people don’t want to spend a lot of time driving to get to school, work, or even for grocery shopping, not to mention entertainment and dining. Even if they aren’t in the heart of a city, many MPCs are built with quick access to highways and interstates to speed up any trips.

The thought that goes into the location of the community means you typically get to enjoy beautiful nature surrounding you, such as the rolling fields, open spaces, and abundant wildlife in a natural setting that you find at Glen Royal. Yet you’re still within walking distance to the new Swift Creek Family YMCA and minutes away from shopping and dining destinations such as Walmart, Target, Lowes and Bonefish Grill. Master-planned communities like Glen Royal at Harper’s Mill understand and cater to your daily lifestyle.

On top of all of that, there are the kinds of amenities that truly do make you feel like you live in a luxurious resort. At Glen Royal, you’ll enjoy the clubhouse, resort-style pool, playground, sports field, walking trails, and even a dog park for your canine family members. Everyone is catered to in this attractive and welcoming master-planned community.

If you’re intrigued by the idea of having all of this right at your doorstep, contact us today to learn more about the homes in Hanover VA that we’re building in the new Glen Royal section of Harper’s Mill. Beautiful nature, outstanding amenities, customizable homes, and easy access to the needs of daily life make this a dream community.
