Windermere FL Real Estate and Windermere Homes for Sale
The town of Windermere in Orange County, Florida was established in 1889 and takes its name from the largest ribbon lake in England.
The Butler Chain of Lakes is particularly significant to life in this Central Florida town, offering residents plenty of breathtaking views. As such, many developers have taken advantage of this by building neighborhoods along the lakes’ shores, attracting prospective homeowners and investors to Windermere’s premier communities.
As in many other areas in Florida, the residents of this affluent township enjoy proximity to some of the best private and public golf courses in the country such as Windermere Golf & Country Club, The Golden Bear and Isleworth. Also nearby are Orlando’s ChampionsGate Golf Resort, Reunion Resort, and Osprey Ridge in Walt Disney World.
