Real Estate in Naples, Florida
The first thing that catches one’s eyes when entering the grounds of Banyan Woods is not a clubhouse, or a golf course or a sales office. It is a large banyan tree sitting in the inner circle of a roundabout that leads to the north and south ends of Rustic Oaks Circle, the main street of Banyan Woods.
While palms are the first type of tree that comes to mind when most people think of the Naples, Florida area, the banyan tree probably has a more distinguished history. Like many Naples residents, the banyan tree is not native to Florida. In fact, the first banyan tree in the continental United States was imported and planted less than an hour’s drive north of Banyan Woods by none other than Thomas Alva Edison. It was only four feet tall when he planted it. Today it covers an entire acre on the grounds of his estate in Ft. Myers.
Beyond the entrance and the banyan tree lies the community of Banyan Woods, 48 acres of lush, tropical grasses and trees, including oaks, palms and, of course, banyans. The gated and guarded community, opened in 1997, is comprised exclusively of 100 single-family home surrounding a six-acre lake and 88 upscale coach homes encircling a second lake.

The Banyan Woods clubhouse is equipped for the enjoyment and relaxation of its residents with a fitness and wellness center, a multipurpose room, a spa, a party room, and terraced gazebos. Residents also enjoy the heated pool, basketball courts, the children’s playground, and a barbeque and picnic area,
Convenience not only describes life within the community, but it also represents its location. Secure and secluded, Banyan Woods is, at the same time, surprisingly close to all the attractions and necessities of life that Naples offers. The Kensington Golf and Country Club is just around the corner.

Barron Collier High School – one of the finest in Florida and rated by Newsweek in 2006 as one of the top high schools in the U.S. – and Osceola Elementary are also just north of Pine Ridge Road.
Of course all of the amenities of Naples, including one of Florida’s finest beaches are all within a few minutes’ drive. Whether your destination is the quaint Waterfront Shoppes, Naples’ trendy and stylish 5th Avenue, or the Coastland Center Mall, they all seem to be just outside the gates of Banyan Woods.
