Is A Huntley Gated Community Home Right For You?


By: Tony Delisi | RE/MAX Unlimited Northwest Associate Broker

There is a Huntley Gated Community called Boulder Ridge with entrances off Algonquin Rd. The development is actually in Lake In The Hills on the border with Huntley IL.

What are the advantages to a gated community? Is it right for you? Here are some things to consider.


Having security at the gatehouse means you will have very few if any solicitors. You won’t be running to the door to listen to an unsolicited pitch for roofing, windows or other items. Professional security also means less crime on average. Why would a criminal target homes in a Huntley gated community when they could steal from unprotected homes?

Less Traffic

Another benefit to a Huntey Gated Community is less traffic. No one drives down community streets except residents and guests. You won’t hear excessive trucks or people taking short cuts. This cuts down substantially on traffic noise in your Huntley gated community.

Higher Standard Of Homes

The standard of homes in a Huntley gated community is higher than average, Most homes are custom homes. Many have circular drives and real brick construction. You will notice a difference in the quality and feel of the community.

Pride Of Ownership

You will notice a great deal of pride of ownership in a Huntley gated community. Your visitors will be impressed with your choice of community.

Social Benefits

Gated communities tend to have more social events where neighbors meet for activities. The Boulder Ridge community includes the village’s only 18 hole golf course, and an immaculate country club which is a popular spot for banquets. There are fitness facilities and clubs too. Life is never dull in this wonderful Huntley gated community.
