Amenity Lots – The 3 W’s

Have you heard of amenity lots in your new home journey? This blog will explore the 3 W's of amenity lots - what, why & where!

You may have seen or heard of amenity lots in your new home buying journey, but what are they and why might you want one and where are they?

An amenity lot means the side or the back of your lot connects you to natural amenities instead of other homes. Whether it’s a fenced gate that leads onto a storm pond or a green space with park views, these lots overall are seen as the most desirable.

Amenity lots are sometimes more expensive than other lots, however there are many reasons the added investment might be worth it to you. Let’s explore some of the reasons why a new home buyer would want an amenity lot.

  1. More Privacy

Amenity lots often provide more privacy than standard residential lots, as they are typically located adjacent to natural amenities like ponds or green spaces, rather than being situated directly next to other homes. This can be especially beneficial for homeowners who value privacy and peace and quiet.

  1. Increased Property Value

Homes built on amenity lots are often more desirable to homebuyers, which can lead to increased property values. This is because they offer access to shared amenities and green spaces that are not available to residents living on standard residential lots. Additionally, developers of amenity lot communities often invest in the maintenance and upkeep of shared amenities and green spaces, which can help to further enhance the overall value of the community.

  1. Enhanced Aesthetics

Homes built on amenity lots are often more visually appealing, as they are designed to take advantage of the natural surroundings. For example, a home built on an amenity lot that overlooks a park or green space can provide breathtaking views, while a home that backs onto a walking trail may have a more natural and serene atmosphere. Additionally, amenity lots are often landscaped and well-maintained, which can enhance the overall curb appeal of the community.

  1. Connection to Nature

Living on an amenity lot provides homeowners with a greater connection to nature. Whether it’s a pond, a park, or a green space, being located adjacent to these natural amenities can provide opportunities to enjoy outdoor activities and experience the beauty of nature. This can be especially beneficial for homeowners who value a more active and outdoor-oriented lifestyle.

An amenity lot can provide a wide range of benefits for new home buyers. These benefits include access to community amenities, increased privacy, enhanced aesthetics, increased property value, and a greater connection to nature.
