Quality gated communities are the hot trend of 2019

Quality dominates the property market in Sofia in 2019. The price rise is calming down which means stability and predictability that provide a buyers' market. Clients now look for better layouts and quality of construction and for more convenient location, regardless of whether they want a home or a profitable investment.

Gated residential communities deservedly became one of the most sought after properties on the market. This is hardly a surprise. Limited access and use of technology and life guards guarantee much better security for the residents. Living in such property is also much calmer because of the way the inhabitants are selected. In gated communities live less people, and they are at the same social level. This creates a feel of community and sharing, of human contact. It seems that with moving to a gated community the modern person returns to the quieter times when all neighbours knew their names and helped one another, while their children grew up together, creating friendships for life.

Gated communities are a comfortable and effective solution to one of the biggest problems of the modern citizen. They are located outside of the centre, far from the pollution, the traffic jams and the noise. Their proximity to major roads makes them comfortable regardless of in which part of Sofia their inhabitants work. The complexes often have houses that provides much more freedom and feel for tranquility. There are green spaces and amenities such as gyms, swimming pools and others.

When you are choosing in which residential complex your next home or investment will be, the right first step is to partner with a property agency that knows the market well and understands your needs.

"Thracia Properties team consists of highly educated professionals and works with a wide circle of partners – lawyers, notaries, bank and credit inspectors, architects, engineers, licensed estimators, builders," explains Krasimira Williams, owner and manager of Thracia Properties agency (Sofia, 36 Pavel Krasov St, phone: 0884 556 480, "The values of our company culture rest on the principles of propriety, responsibility, honesty, individual approach, dedication, respect and professionalism." Among the new developments in Sofia Thracia Properties recommend the gated community Gorublyane Central. "The complex consists of 5 detached low energy houses with own gardens, it in Sofia yet close to nature," explains Krasimira Williams. "The architecturе, the construction and the finishing of the houses are in accordance with the highest standards. The location provides comfortable connections via Tsarigradsko Shose and Samokovsko Shose boulevards and the ring road. Gorublyane is a neighbourhood of houses with gardens, which guarantees tranquility, greenery and vistas to the Vitosha and the Lozenska mountains. The proximity of mountains, mineral pools, tennis courts, the Pancharevo Lake and Iskar Dam offers healthy lifestyle and options for sport and relaxation. The neighbourhood is friendly and quiet, in it your can relax after a stressful day and your children can play outside calm and happy."

Sofia's southern neighbourhoods are for now the preferred place for development of gated communities. The proximity of the Vitosha mountain with its clean air, and the easy communications are one of the main reasons for the interest in this part of the city.

"The properties in Beverly Park gated development ( provide you with an excellent opportunity for relaxed life in a luxury environment with plenty of amenities. The access control, the CCTV and the live guards guarantee security and peace of mind," says Daniela Gocheva, sales manager at Prime Developments International. “Beverly Park ensures a lifestyle full of style, comfort and extras! Its residents will benefit from clean air and beautiful mountain views in close proximity to “Vitosha” National Park, as well as fast and easy access to the city centre. The territory of the complex has an impressive beautifully landscaped private park with rich greenery and water features, outdoor swimming pool, children's playground and many places to sit and enjoy the surroundings. The residents can also benefit from sauna, steam room, massage parlour, gym and relaxation area, and a club for family events and children's games."

Indeed, what could be better than a gated community: to have your own abode of tranquility and quiet so close to the big city.
