Sherwood Forest and Sherwood Lake subdivisions are especially beautiful neighborhoods located just 5 miles outside of Bloomington. The location allows homeowners to have the benefits of country living right outside of town. The subdivisions sit near the intersection of Towanda Barnes and Morrisey. They are just a short drive from State Farm Corporate Headquarters, making them a particularly attractive area for business professionals.
There are several lots already developed with large, stunning homes, and there are also several lots remaining. If you’re interested in building your home on one of the available Sherwood lots, you can find more information by contacting one of our preferred vendors, Vision Ventures Construction & Remodeling. The remaining lots range from ½ acre up to 1.73 acres! Both of the sister subdivisions feed into the Tri-Valley Schools which are known for their excellence.
The Sherwood Forest subdivision has large family homes nestled in between a variety of mature trees, bushes and shrubs. There is a sense of peacefulness as you enter the subdivision along Briar Drive, and you could certainly spend hours walking the neighborhood appreciating the views of the natural elements. Many of the homes here are valued near $500,000 with some pushing near the million dollar price tag. Homes near the upper end of this price range can have 7,000+ square feet and lots up to an acre or larger.
Continuing to travel down Briar Drive you will enter into the Sherwood Lake subdivision where there are currently 9 lots still for sale. The subdivision is named for its 19 acre lake located in the middle of the neighborhood. Homeowners that enjoy fishing are in for a treat! The lake is stocked with blue gill, crabby, walleye and bass. The homes with direct access to the lake all have huge walkouts in their back yards, making the homes themselves their own little serene retreat. Many of the homes in Sherwood Lake are newer, larger and more expensive than the ones in Sherwood Forest, but they are absolutely gorgeous. This upscale neighborhood is one of Bloomington’s most exclusive and desirable areas.
