Why is Community Living Beneficial?

When we talk about community living, we are talking about living in a place where you’re connected to your neighborhood and your neighbor. Community living is all about engaging with the people you live with and enjoying all of the great things your community has to offer. 

What is Community Living?

Master-planned communities or master-planned neighborhoods like South Peak offer residents quality homes situated in a planned setting that includes recreational amenities, shopping, dining, and commercial space. It’s easy to see why people would prefer to live in these spaces, but let’s look at some of the best reasons to seek out community living.


Community living is great because places like South Peak have amazing amenities. Families with young children as well as people without little ones can appreciate having walking paths, pools, and other recreational areas available.

Shopping and Retail

When you want to indulge in some retail therapy, community living has your back. Communities like those in South Peak offer shopping both right in the community and close-by. You’ll find treasures in smaller local boutiques and bigger stores alike. 


Another great thing about community living is that planned communities are home to great dining options. Just like shopping, a well-planned community will attract restaurants that you can become a regular patron of! Whether it’s a favorite fast-casual restaurant that you already love or a new fine dining experience, having so many food options right at your fingertips is what community living is all about!

Offices & Workspace

Another perk of community living is that many master-planned communities include office spaces. That’s pretty convenient for people who live and work in the same area. Imagine walking to work or avoiding rush hour traffic because the office is so close to home! This is also a good thing for people who are self-employed or work remotely. Many office buildings in a planned community have small turn-key offices that you can rent for days, weeks, or months at a time. So you can get out of the house or check out a conference room on days you need to have meetings.

And if you don’t have any professional business of your own to get done, you’ll still be glad that your community has commercial office space. Your gym, dentist, and doctor can all be just a short walk or drive away from your house!

The Community

This will seem obvious and repetitive, but what is really the best part of community living? The actual community! Your neighbors that you form lifelong friendships with. When you find the right place to live, you find your people. Your community can become that “village” you always hear people talk about. You know, the one that helps you raise your children and becomes a type of second family. Bonus: research shows that people who feel connected to the people around them are happier and healthier.
