Luxury and American Living: Gated Communities of the Rich and Powerful

There are gated communities that are within reach. It’s a comfortable thought that such gated communities can be available even for the common people. Then, there are the posh communities; gated communities that feature celebrities and people who are not like you or me.

These gated communities are where people aspire to be. Here are some of the most luxurious gated communities in the US.

Conyers Farm (Greenwich, Connecticut)

From when it was established in the 1980s until now, Conyers Farm has kept its elite status. A 1,500 rural acre property, it has green woods and a private lake for nature lovers. Houses here—which usually have private gates—are priced from around $6.5 to $19 million.

Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club (Boca Raton, Florida)

It’s not surprising to see a place that’s posh and fabulous be located in the heart of South Florida. As a yachting community, Royal Palm is among the top exclusive communities in the country. Homes here are priced from $800,000 to $20 million, with waterfront homeowners given the luxury of parking their yachts right in front of their homes.

Hillandale (Georgetown, Washington D.C.)

All 42 acres of Hillandale was once the stomping grounds of oil heiress Anne Archbold. However, it was re-purposed in the ‘80s to become a residential community that features a swimming pool, tennis courts, and a clubhouse. You can have a house here starting from $1.3 to $2.3 million.

Pomander Walk (Manhattan, NY)

It’s a secret pedestrian-only street right in the middle of the busiest state in the country. Originally a replica of a Chiswick district street in London, the homes here sell from $1.6 to $1.8 million. The walk fosters a quaint sense of community if you think about it.

These homes are a cut above the rest—posh and in locations that are quite disconnected from the noise of the modern world. These are great places to raise a family in and none would be more secure locations.
