Brookstone3 and 2 look nice on the outside, but on the inside, it's horrible. It is very cliquish. The neighbors take great joy in siccing the VERY aggressive homeowner's associate on each other and also like to call the county code enforcement on each other for petty things just for fun.
There's a lot of gossip and ugly backbiting and in-fighting because it's populated by bored moms that don't work, don't volunteer and just spend their time shopping and being ugly to their neighbors. You may get a home that will retain its value, but you will also get unparalleled harassment that reduces your quality of life to zero.
If you must buy in Brookstone, buy in the original Brookstone 1 - it is much less uppity and comfortable. But better yet, avoid Brookstone altogther and buy in one of the other lovely and less antagonistic neighborhoods nearby.... more
