Gated Communities in Minnesota

Gated Communities in Minnesota


In many areas of the United States they have an abundance of gated communities. In Minnesota with larger lots, lower crime rates and great schools with an abundance of children running from backyard to backyard…we have fewer gated communities.

Even though gated communities offer add

ed sense of security and privacy they aren’t very popular around the Twin Cities. Many cities and city councils throughout Minneapolis-St. Paul and surrounding suburbs stating such housing developments are unnecessary and can be providing a somewhat of an elitist perception. Many don’t believe that is reflective of “Minnesota nice”. We, at The Anderson Team, believe it is a personal opinion and a personal decision whether that it is something that works for you. As an example some people find comfort in have a gated community since they often travel for an extended period of time and having that extra layer of security gives them piece of mind.

Since there is a limited availability of such homes on the market it is good to work with a Real Estate Team that has knowledge of homes not on the market and coming soon in addition to those currently for sale in the MLS. We offer that insight and service and look forward to working with you.


Here are three gated communities in the Twin Cities of Minnesota.

Bearpath - Eden Prairie, MN

The most recognizable, and perhaps the most exclusive is the Bearpath community. The $52 million community started to rise out of 460 acres of woods and fields in 1994. It opened with a lot of attention on the gatehouse, clubhouse and Jack Nicklaus-designed 18-hole golf course.  It features a city trail through the community. Besides single family homes there are townhomes and twin homes.


Clay Cliffe - Tonka Bay, MN

Clay Cliffe is the first gated community to be developed in the state of Minnesota. Opening in 1976. It now has 18 homes. Homes for sale in Clay Cliffe are set on expansive wooded home sites and offer a peaceful and tranquil setting that comes with being on Lake Minnetonka. Very exclusive designation with spectacular homes.


St. Andrews Village - Blaine, MN

Featuring a combination of newer and traditional homes that offers a lot of value to buyers, it’s easy to see the appeal whether it is it’s gated or not. Homeowners have a general sense of community, and sure in common lifestyle amenities like a swimming pool, a 9-hole disc golf course, walking and biking trails, borders 80 Acre Lochness Park and surround by nature and wetland parks.
