Hello World! Welcome Friends! You’ve been thinking about buying property in a master-planned community, and today’s communities offer a wealth of amenities that appeal to many home buyers. Though the list of possible amenities is long, and each community has custom offerings to draw in different kinds of people, some amenities stick out as being important or especially intriguing, to many people. Does the idea of a nearby water park, preserved green space, or concert stage appeal to you? Here are some amenities to keep an eye out for.
Planned Green Spaces

Master-planned communities leave space for greenery and nature. These green spaces are more than just trees lining sidewalks or small parks only good for short walks or dog breaks. In master-planned communities, you often find trails perfect for biking, running, and hiking. The amenities the city offers are never far away, but you don’t have to live in a totally urban area. Nature’s peace is within walking distance of your home when you live in a place like Austin’s Santa Rita Ranch with a jogging park and fishing opportunities. Use it as a way to find tranquility, or as an outdoor gym!
The right master-planned community features the outdoor activities you want to do. From tennis courts to golf courses to swimming pools, you can find these and more in master-planned communities. Instead of joining a gym or a health club, the amenities are in your community and readily available to you.
Gardening is hard work, and not everyone has the time to start a big vegetable garden. But in master-planned communities, community gardens are an effort that beautifies common spaces and provides sustainable measures the residents can be proud of. Along with community gardens, many master-planned communities offer other environmental draws, like efforts to preserve natural space within the community.
How does a wine night sound? What about movie nights, community yoga classes, or sustainability efforts? Master-planned communities are centered around lifestyles, not just living spaces. When you choose your community, check the events calendar. Kids’ events and holiday celebrations help parents who don’t have any family living close by. Other events to check for include hobbies like photography or pottery, which will engage adults of every age. Your master-planned community gives you a built-in place to look for the activities you already want to do.
How does living near a zoo, a cultural center, an art gallery, or a water park sound? Master-planned communities today often feel more like resorts because of the sheer number of things the community offers to its residents. Water parks with slides and lounge chairs appeal to people with kids, and adults who are kids at heart. Other possibilities include stages for music or theatre performances, fire pits and grills for outdoor cooking, and lots of games.
With so many possible amenities available in these lifestyle communities, finding the right one is essential during your home buying process. Visit the master-planned communities you’re considering to get a feel for what they have to offer and to experience some of their major draws.
