Walk down any street in The Brooks, and you may feel as if you’ve stepped back in time. A centrally focused community, The Brooks incorporates an old-time neighborhood spirit rarely found in today’s residential areas, into a progressive development with all the expectations of the modern world.
Located in Bonita Springs, The Brooks covers over 2,500 acres of home sites, recreational facilities, town amenities and open property. The area was developed with a sharp eye on environmental responsibility.
More than half the total land area of The Brooks will remain open, protected space.
Four gated communities make up the development and pivot around The Town Center. Each distinct section offers a particular lifestyle with various living options.
Shadow Wood is traditional country club living, Spring Run and Copperleaf are golf course communities, and Lighthouse Bay is loved for its waterfront views. A range of home styles is available from custom estates and single-family homes to carriage and coach homes, villas and condominiums.
The Town Center itself, complete with village green and gazebo, is somewhat revolutionary in conception. A community with soul?
This focal point of The Brooks provides opportunities for residents to gather, interact, know and enjoy their neighbors. Through membership in The Commons Club, residents may frequent the Enrichment Center for hands-on learning, the full service Fitness Center with workout rooms, classes and spa facilities, the private, casual dining restaurant Rosie Spoonbill’s, and the private Beach Club that is just short drive away on the gulf at Bonita Beach.
Golf is amazing at The Brooks, as would be expected. Four championship courses are available for challenging rounds. The Shadow Wood Country Club is home to the North and South course, designed by Bob Cupp and featuring a striking 30,000±SF country club with every amenity. Shadow Wood’s third course is located 5 miles north in the Shadow Wood Preserve, an idyllic natural setting. Gordon Lewis designed the course at Spring Run which boasts an aquatic driving range. Lewis also designed the Copperleaf course who’s clubhouse includes a swimming pool and spa.
Residents have full access to tennis courts, pools, open spaces and miles of walking and biking trails that meander through each neighborhood.
Much old-time charm and consideration went into planning The Brooks, but modern conveniences were certainly not overlooked. The Brooks is wired throughout for high-speed, fiber optic data and voice services. There is also a community focused intranet, where residents can access local information, make tee-times or tennis reservations, post messages and link up with other residents.
On the outside, old-fashioned and community-oriented, just below the surface an innovative residential ideal, The Brooks may just be the master planned community of the future.
