Windermere Real Estate
Do you know what luxury feels like?
Located just southwest of Orlando, Florida with fewer than 2000 family-friendly residents is the Town of Windermere. And within that is an entire community of shops and attractions that ensure there is something for every member of the family. The kids will enjoy how close they are to Universal Studios, International Drive and Walt Disney World, while mom and dad applaud Windermere’s A-rated schools and weekend activities.
Speaking of weekend activities, if you are a water enthusiast you will be pleased to know that the Butler Chain of Lakes is ready for you to visit it. Clean, sandy bottom, and spring-fed, this body of water is perfect for boating and water skiing.
Windermere was founded May 5, 1915. Just 110 acres of land, Windermere was auctioned off and incorporated under the council-manager form of government to be what it is today. The official town logo is based on the Town of Windermere, England. The Windermere Gazette is published quarterly and is the hub of disseminating important events and happenings in Windermere. Anything you need to know about what to do and what’s coming up you can find here.
