Aerial View Shows why Windermere is known as the "Town of Lakes"
Windermere, Florida is located in Southwest Orange County, approximately 14 mile from downtown Orlando and 6 miles north of the Walt Disney World Resort. Windermere is known as the Town of Lakes, since it is surrounded by sand bottom lakes. Lake Butler is the largest and borders the town to the west. Lake Down borders the town to the east and Lake Bessie to the Southeast. Through a series of canals, Lake Butler and Lake Down connect with 6 additional lakes, forming the Butler Chain of Lakes.
The downtown area consists of three blocks of commercial space of varied but limited services. As you drive through Main Street be attentive to the 25 MPH speed limit, as the town police are known to give out quite a few speeding tickets!
Because of the small town feel and the access to the Butler Chain of Lakes, Windermere has slowly added upscale subdivisions with homes priced in the millions of dollars. The most well known of these is Isleworth, home to celebrities, corporate executives and local entrepreneurs. Of course, there are additional communities with ultra luxury homes in Windermere.
Windermere is home to Orlando's elite, including PGA Golfers, NBA Basketball stars, the area's local corporate executives and numerous national entrepreneurs. That doesn't mean that everyone in Windermere is extremely wealthy, but it doesn't hurt!
Not all homes in Windermere are in this price range. Along with the multi-million dollar homes in communities like Isleworth, Reserve at Lake Butler and Chaine du Lac, there are numerous areas with homes under a million dollars, including the Lakes of Windermere and Keene's Point, on Lake Tibet-Butler and home to a Jack Nichlas Signature Golf Course, the Golden Bear Club.. All enjoy the amenities of a small town atmosphere and local organizations and events.
