FORT MYERS, FL

Located within walking distance of downtown Fort Myers, historic Dean Park is an intimate neighborhood of approximately 70 homes, largely built between 1912 and the late 1920s.
This exclusive area was home to many of Fort Myers' most prominent families of the time and continues to attract discerning buyers. Today, Dean Park boasts an eclectic mix of homes constructed in a variety of architectural styles, including Mediterranean, Spanish, Dutch Colonial, and English Tudor. Many of the original homes have been lovingly restored and are set against a backdrop of sweeping palms and lush landscapes. Because the original zoning laws mandated that homes be no less than 35 feet from the curb, the neighborhood continues to maintain a private, and unhurried aura, despite the convenient city location.
