Why you should purchase a home in Shadow Wood at The Brooks!

Our community offers a variety of home styles/size, convenience to shopping and airports, and flexibility in amenities.

What about Location – Location – Location? That Is Important!

Situated in the newly planned, attractive Village of Estero, Shadow Wood is one of four communities which form The Brooks residential area. The community is a mere 20-25 minutes away from Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW) which serves national and international airlines. The community is within walking distance of Coconut Point Mall. Gulf Coast Town Center and Miromar Outlet Malls are just minutes away by car. More recently, two state-of-the-art medical facilities have opened nearby that include emergency and urgent care, day surgery, rehabilitation, health and nutrition classes, primary care and outpatient services, and much more.

Shadow Wood is different from other communities

Shadow Wood is an “unbundled” community. YOU decide from a wide variety of choices what activities and lifestyle preferences interest you the most as offered by the Shadow Wood Country Club and The Commons Club. If you want to play or learn tennis, bocce, pickleball or golf, walk or sit at the beach, exercise alone or in a group at the fitness center, enjoy spa services, or have a variety of private dining options, they are all available as you choose. Not only that, there is a very active social program with many interesting talks and informative lectures. The Commons Club arranges tickets to enjoy local activities including theatre seats at Artis Naples and Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in Fort Myers. Meeting rooms are available for card games, Mah Jongg, lectures, classes and much more; the decision is yours, should you wish to join the Shadow Wood Country Club and/or The Commons Club. For those new to the area, this is the place to make new friends!
