The Benefits of Living in Luxury Gated Communities in the Carolinas

There truly is no place like the Carolinas. From the beautiful weather year-round to the southern hospitality and pristine landscapes, living in the Carolinas provides a lifestyle full of endless adventure and pure joy. 

Discover the top nine reasons to move to our luxury gated communities in the Carolinas. 

1. Mild Weather Year-Round

The Carolinas are known for their beautiful weather that lasts all year long. In the western half of the states, you can expect the temperatures to be in the 80s during the warmest summer months with lows in the 30s during the coldest winter months. When living in the Carolinas, you will be able to enjoy all four seasons while rarely having to worry about extreme temperatures on either ends of the spectrum. 

2. Opportunity for Endless Adventure and Exploration

Life in the Carolinas is full of endless possibilities for adventure and exploration. With soaring mountains and deep blue lakes surrounding our luxury gated communities, there are a multitude of outdoor activities to partake in. Fill your days hiking to a towering waterfall, fishing for bass in the lake, biking a winding trail, or simply taking in the beauty of your surroundings.

3. Enjoy a Lower Cost of Living 

The Carolinas have some of the lowest costs of living in the entire nation. When you buy a home here, you can expect to save on property taxes and home costs — allowing you to maintain your high standard of living at a lower cost. All of these savings allow you to live out your dream lifestyle to the fullest. Whether it be purchasing a second home or finally building that home with a view, living in the Carolinas grants you the freedom to pursue your passions.

4. Belong to An Active Community 

Communities at The Cliffs provide members with all of the amenities and facilities needed to live an active lifestyle. With seven nationally ranked golf courses, as well as state-of-the-art wellness centers with tennis and pickleball courts, members are always on the go. Plus, with gorgeous hiking and biking trails, dog parks, and pavilions, there are countless opportunities to engage in wellness activities with neighbors and friends. 

5. Southern Hospitality

There’s nothing like some good ‘ole southern hospitality. With friendly neighbors, polite strangers, and an overall inviting atmosphere, there truly is nothing like the South. Once you step foot into one of our luxury gated communities, you will be greeted with a warm welcome from a community of fellow members.

6. A Slower Pace of Life

Tired of the constant hustle and bustle of city life? At The Cliffs, members enjoy life at a slower pace — taking in their scenic surroundings and enjoying all of these recreational activities The Cliffs has to offer. Rather than sitting in traffic during your daily commute, imagine yourself sitting on your front porch sipping a cup of hot coffee. That’s the life that awaits you at The Cliffs. 

7. Carolina Cuisine

Carolina cuisine is known for its rich flavors featuring tasty, local ingredients. From fresh seafood to tender barbecue, and mouth-watering apple cobbler, you are in for some unforgettable meals when you move to the Carolinas. 

Plus, the chefs at The Cliffs have fostered relationships with local farmers and artisans so that every menu features the finest ingredients. Some of our seasonal produce is even sourced from our very own farms. We also offer cooking classes put on by our talented chefs so you can learn how to make these delicious meals in your own kitchen. 

8. Surrounding Cities

The Carolinas are home to a variety of upbeat and vibrant cities that each have their own unique charm. And when you live in one of our communities, you have the opportunity to explore them all! Whether you prefer a quick day trip or a week-long getaway, there’s plenty of cities to choose from nearby. 

If you’re looking to further explore the Blue Ridge Mountains, we recommend Asheville, North Carolina — an eclectic city known for its world-renowned breweries, quaint coffee shops, and scenic hikes. Or, if you’re a sports fan, visit Clemson, South Carolina in the fall to see the Tigers take the field at Death Valley. Greenville, South Carolina is another nearby city that is known for its vibrant downtown, tree-lined streets, and beautiful parks. The many amazing cities in the Western Carolinas provide endless opportunities for sightseeing and exploration.  

9. Your Kids Will Love It, Too!

The luxury gated communities at The Cliffs aren’t just for adults! Your kids will love the southern lifestyle just as much as you do. With so many outdoor adventures and children’s activities, the Carolinas are the perfect place for kids to get their hands muddy and just be a kid!

Plus, every summer The Cliffs hosts week-long camps for children of all ages. These kids programs, along with year-long activities, include fun activities such as golf and tennis lessons as well as white-water rafting and kayaking for older kids. Living in the Carolina mountains will provide your children with memories to last a lifetime.
