imageclearDr. Phillips, Florida, located in Orange County, is situated within 10 minutes of Disney World, Sea World and Universal Studios, and about 15-20 minutes from Downtown Orlando or Orlando International Airport. Presently, this is a community of 40,000 people living along a chain of lakes that encompasses two golf courses, two country clubs, a cluster of upscale condos and townhouses, a shopping center, post office, high rise office complex, Olympic swimming pool, two schools, and a dozen tennis courts. The Dr. Phillips area has been a very desirable area due largely to the local schools' reputations

Dr. Philip Phillips was a pioneer in the citrus industry and was responsible for several key innovations in the processing and packaging of orange juice. He owned thousands of acres of groves, stretching across nine Central Florida counties and extending from Conroy Road on the north to the south end of the Sand Lake Chain, encompassing all of what is now Bay Hill, Orange Tree, Sand Lake Hills and Turkey Lake Park.

imageclearIn the last 30 years explosive growth has been experienced due largely to the location of two key local industries; defense and tourism. Initially it was the construction of defense giant Martin Marrietta (currently Lockheed Martin) that had the greatest impact on the city, but that was only until the arrival in 1971 of Orlando's most famous resident, Mickey Mouse. The impact of Walt Disney World on all of Central Florida has been huge, but nowhere is it more recognizable than in southwest Orlando and the Dr. Phillips area.

Industries providing employment: Arts, entertainment, recreation, accommodation and food services (27.3%), Professional, scientific, management, administrative, and waste management services (12.6%), Educational, health and social services (12.0%)

The area has been able to maintain its superb quality of life by timely upgrading the infrastructure and controlling growth

The Dr. Phillip's area, neighboring Windermere and Isleworth encompass some of the most luxurious homes in Orange County. From golf front homes in the prestigious community of Bay Hill to multi-million dollar mansions on the Butler chain of lakes to exclusive gated communities, there is a home for the most discriminating tastes. There are also more affordable homes ranging from the low $200,000’s for townhomes and condos.

The area has been very desirable due largely to the local schools' reputations. The elementary school received an "A" rating in both 2003 and 2004 by the Florida Department of Education.
