What You Might Not Like
Most of the Brookswood homes for sale are on septic, so once in a while, your neighbour might have their septic pumped on a Friday afternoon.
Some of the streets don’t have sidewalks and some of the homes have started to show their wear.
The tall trees are beautiful but they tend to block the sunshine. Cleaning moss off your roof and cleaning gutters is a right of passage in Brookswood, but the tall trees are what make Brookswood unique and you’ll get to know your neighbours when you first move in because you’ll probably need to borrow some tools.
