Brookside is a neighborhood just east of Old Naples and located on Rock Creek, which feeds into the Gordon River and Gulf of Mexico. This is a place that you will still find bargains for mid-century modern lovers who aren't afraid of renovations.
This neighborhood is popular because of it's close proximity (5 minute drive) to Old Naples, and the water access to the Gulf of Mexico. While waterfront homes here will cost more, prices here are still much lower than similar homes in neighborhoods like Lake Park.
There is a lot of development being proposed near Brookside. Right now you can walk to the Oakes Farm Market from here. Soon there may be a complex with restaurants, a hotel and movie theater near Brookside as well.
