Home to 248 townhome residences, Forest Lake Townhomes is a private, gated residential community in an ideal setting off of Metro Parkway in Fort Myers, Florida.
The neighborhood completed development in 2005, and there are 4 different floor plans available from 2 to 3-bedrooms in size. Some of the townhomes also include a 1-car garage.
Some units here offer expansive views of the bordering nature preserve and the large lake within the community. The location is about 1 mile north of Colonial Boulevard, creating easy access to shopping and other businesses, restaurants, sports venues, and Interstate 75.
Forest Lake Real Estate
Situated on a premier site overlooking the nature preserve is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath residence with an open floorplan and many recent updates. Within the last 2 years, the townhome has received new cabinets, stainless steel appliances, HVAC system, roof, and flooring throughout.
There is a large, screened lanai off the living area featuring stunning views of the surrounding natural native preserve land. This is a rare amenity, as owners are no longer allowed to add lanais to the rear of their townhomes.
The residence is 1,447 square feet in size and was most recently on the market for $300,000. Owners here pay a Homeowners Association, (HOA), fee of $240.00 per month.
A 2 bedroom, 2.5 bath residence with 1,230 square feet of living area features wood flooring in the 2nd floor bedrooms, gorgeous new quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances and a beautiful, built-in white marble entertainment center in the oversized living room.
Like other Forest Lake townhomes, the master bedroom and laundry area are located on the 2nd floor. This home last sold in mid-2022 for $220,000 and it also includes an HOA fee of $240.00 per month.
Forest Lake Amenities
Residents here enjoy meeting at the spacious community clubhouse for a cooling dip in the resort-like swimming pool. There is also a fitness room for getting in a brisk workout, and a full kitchen and seating areas for indoor or outdoor parties in the clubhouse.
The kids will love the playground area, and you can take the family for an invigorating hike along the 3-mile linear park that borders the north side of Forest Lake Townhomes.
Whether you work or are living the good life in retirement, the convenience of this townhome community is a key benefit. Just outside your private entry gates are hundreds of retailers from “big box” stores to smaller, independent business, dozens of restaurants sure to satisfy any craving, and several nearby golf courses.
