Luxurious Gated Communities

Interesting article on today about America’s luxurious gated communities. The Pawleys Island area has some pretty luxurious gated communities that were not mentioned in the article, so I thought I would feature them here.

According to the article, “gated communities aren’t necessarily fancy — by definition, they’re just neighborhoods surrounded by gates — but security isn’t cheap, often making them synonymous with wealth. There are thousands of gated communities across the country, boasting fine landscaping, million-dollar houses, community pools and even golf courses.”

Elisabeth Miller-Fox, president of, said, “ gated communities started in places with nice weather but little infrastructure, so developers created private communities to allow people to enjoy the climate and the remote location, without being stranded in the middle of nowhere. Florida and California have a lot of these communities… Overwhelming luxury is a little harder to find, and much harder to afford. But if you have the money, you can get some seriously jaw-dropping amenities.”

It’s those seriously jaw-dropping amenities that make DeBordieu Colony one of the most sought after gated communities in the Pawleys Island area, and on the East Coast. Since the early 70s, generations of families have discovered DeBordieu to be the perfect place for their primary residence or vacation home. DeBordieu is one of three gated oceanfront communities in the Pawleys Island Area. The other two are Prince George and Inlet Point south.

What makes DeBordieu so remarkable, is that in addition to private access to miles of secluded beach, DeBordieu also offers its residents private golf, saltwater creek access to the ocean, a manned security gate, fine dining, tennis, and luxury homes and villas surrounded by thousands of acres of wildlife and nature preserves.
