When it comes to prime real estate, when it comes to finding a place to make the perfect home, location actually is only part of the battle. The lifestyle amenities that encompass the community are also an integral part of the overall attributes of the ideal location to call home.
Perhaps no other community better combines an outstanding location with access to cosmopolitan urban living with all of the wonderful attributes of serene and placid country living than does Windermere. Home to some of the most magnificent properties in Central Florida, indeed in all of the Sunshine State, Windermere is proving to be the hometown of distinction for people who appreciate the very best that life has to offer.
Windermere is conveniently located less than a half an hour drive from the thriving city of Orlando. Nestled amongst the Butler Chain of lakes, Windermere is an ideal location for people who enjoy living in a naturally scenic setting. The sand bottom lakes are considered to be some of the most beautiful in the world. Adding to the luster of the lakes are canals that meander through the area, connecting the lakes one with another. As a result, water sports and related recreational activities contribute the casual and easy lifestyle that is endemic in the area. The shear spectacular nature of the setting has made it an ideal location for people to build and buy homes.
Because of the unmatched beauty of the lakes, waterfront property is highly sought after. Indeed, some of the most exquisite real estate development presently is occurring in and around Windermere. However, although homes are being built at a solid rate in the area, the city council and other civic leaders have taken great pains to ensure that the unique charm of the area is preserved for generations yet to come. By way of example, a conscious effort has been made to ensure that major thoroughfares actually end up diverted away from the area in order to ensure the tranquility that is the hallmark and keystone of Windermere.
Even with all the development that is occurring the area, Windermere has not lost any of its historic charm. For example, downtown Windermere remains a preserved district complete with quaint shops and boutiques and incomparable bistros lining the well kept streets of the city center. When strolling about the town center at Windermere one almost feels transported back to a simpler and more idyllic time. What is most remarkable is when that individual realizes that he or she is experiencing this sense of tranquility and simplicity . . . today.
Beyond the high acclaim given to the physical appearance and natural beauty of Windermere and the surrounding area, the town itself has been designated as the number one community in all of Florida to raise a family. Windermere received this distinction based upon the livability of the community as well as an outstanding school system and one of the lowest crime rates to be found anywhere in the United States.
Finally, when the need or desire arises, because Windermere is so conveniently located to Orlando and many of the top Floridian attractions, a person can be enjoying “big city life” on a moment's notice – without sacrificing the incomparable lifestyle that Windermere has to offer.
