Windermere FL signclearFor luxury living at its best, look no further than real estate in the Town of Windermere. This quaint West Orange County community is surrounded by pristine sand bottom lakes. Lake Butler (the largest with 1600 sparkling acres) on the west, Lake Down on the east and Lake Bessie on the southeast make waterfront living in Windermere an experience to cherish. The boating enthusiast will revel in the system of canals that connect eight lakes known as the Butler Chain of Lakes. The state protects the 4500 acre chain under the designation of an "outstanding Florida Waterway," for these spring-fed gems are so clear that you can literally see the white sand bottom as you float along in your boat.

Windermere has come a long way since 1885 when Dr Stanley Scott, an Englishman and world traveler, purchased 160 acres of real estate in this picturesque location, built his home on the west shore of Lake Butler and bestowed the name of "Windermere"; many believe after the famous Lake Windermere in England. Soon other settlers, many of them English, began to build houses in this 'American haven' and by 1887, when the town plat was officially recorded, only 120 people lived in Windermere and by 1920 the census gave the town a population count of 182.

Today almost 1,900 people inhabit the Town of Windermere. The community, however, has not based success on how rapidly it grows, but by how natural and pleasant a community it is in which to reside. Its quality of life is its most distinguishing feature. In fact, most town streets remain unpaved in deference to their commitment to hold on to the pristine nature of the chain of lakes. This "island village among the lakes," as it has been described, still retains the pace and tone of a small town. Contact Metro Orlando Realtor John Hambrick to help you with your real estate needs in this and surrounding communities in Lake County, Osceola County, Orange County, Seminole County, Polk County, Brevard County and Volusia County.
