Some buyers who are considering Carlsbad homes prefer, or even require, that their new home be in a gated community.
Gated communities, for some, provide a sense of security, or at least that perception. And there are often economic reasons for wanting to be in these particular neighborhoods. Others regard such communities as being snobbish or classist.
Some gated communities ARE truly secure, at least from car traffic, and are surrounded completely by walls. Others may only have a gate at the entrances but could allow access on foot elsewhere, thus security is perhaps only perception.
None of the complexes in Carlsbad provide staffed gatehouses at the entrance as you will find in some of the gated communities in Rancho Santa Fe.
For those who prefer to live in a gated community in Carlsbad there are a number of choices, most of them in the Aviara and La Costa areas:
There are also estate homes in the La Costa area that are stand-alone gated properties, in the mid $1 millions to as high as $5 million.
