Windermere the Hidden City

Windermere the Hidden City

Known as “the city among the lakes,” Windermere is tucked away amongst a number of small lakes which are part of the Butler Chain of Lakes, to the South and West of Orlando. A unique feature of this beautiful city is the small town atmosphere that residents enjoy which is reminiscient of a charming New England village. To preserve and protect the lakes that surround the downtown area, dirt roads, rather than paved, add to the town’s nostalgic feel.


Friendly neighbors, one traffic light and fabulous shops, singular in their appeal, all combine to create an environment that individuals from all walks of life - from well known celebrities to successful entrepreneurs and local businessmen seek out.


Homeowners can enjoy a beautiful lakefront view across their expansive yards, or take a pleasant walk along area sidewalks underneath a canopy of trees, all within view of exquisitely crafted, luxurious homes and beautifully manicured landscapes.


Despite the “home-town” feel of Windermere, residents are just minutes away from both Disney World and downtown Orlando - and any number of desirable amenities. Whether it’s a night out on the town, or fun things to do with the kids, you can find it in Windermere.


According to NeighborhoodScout, Windermere is at the top of their list of 10 best towns for families and children in Florida. Using data from the National Center for Education Statistics, the U.S. Bureau of Census, the FBI, the U.S. Justice Department and the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight, Windermere possesses the best combination of features that parents and researchers list as being important for families with children.


NeighborhoodScout, created by Dr. Andrew Schiller, a specialist in American demographics, shared how the data was processed, "We were looking for those very select communities that have both top-quality public schools and an exceptionally family-friendly environment, not towns that may excel at one or two criteria but are lacking in other ways."


Neighborhoods in Windermere range from multi-million dollar homes to ordinary residential homes. Some neighborhoods in Windermere include Isleworth, Lake Butler Sound, Waterstone and Keene’s Pointe.




Isleworth is one of the most exclusive neighborhoods within Windermere, and is home to many well known celebrities and sports figures. This gated golfing community features an impressive assortment of sculptures by artists such as Keith Harring, Yoko Ono and Dali, placed in strategic locations throughout the community.


Membership in the Isleworth Country Club has its privileges. Featuring an 82,000 square foot club house, the Country Club has a wellness center, professional quality tennis courts and a golf course designed by Arnold Palmer, which is used by a number of professional golfers, and has played host to the Bay Hill Invitation Golf Tournament.


Lake Butler Sound


Lake Butler Sound is home to some of the most luxurious estates in the region. Designed in Classical and Mediterranean styles and exquisitely crafted to the smallest detail by well known, reputable builders, this community consists of 3 separate enclaves, The Reserve, The Estates and Mediterranea. 


Lavish estates possessing homes, ranging in size from 3,200 sq ft to 88,000 sq. feet, and positioned on lots ranging in size from 0.7 acres up to more than 10 acres, have each been designed to blend with their surroundings in a harmonious symphony of beauty and luxury, well suited to the tastes of the most discriminating individual.


Residents enjoy relaxing in beautiful English style gardens and convenient access to every conceivable amenity, just minutes away from the peaceful oasis that is Lake Butler Sound.




Residents of Waterstone, a private gated community, enjoy waterfront living and an exclusive lifestyle that few can. Palatial estates, situated on generous sized ½ acre, 100 foot wide home sites and well crafted to the the greatest detail offer the best in luxury living.


Features such as 3 car courtyards, or side entry garages, gourmet kitchens, luxury finishes and customizable options help make each home distinctive and personally yours.


Waterstone offers something for everyone. Despite the privacy and seclusion of these beautiful estates, every possible amenity is just minutes away. Enjoy a day with the family at Disney, Sea World and other world renowned attractions, or spend time with friends at Waterstone’s first class golf course. Shopping and dining opportunities await you at area restaurants and shops such as the Mall at Millenia or the Winter Garden Village.


Keene’s Point


Luxury living at Keene’s Point, situated near the sparkling shores of Lake Tibet-Butler, takes many forms, from traditional magnificence to classical  splendor, each exclusively designed and crafted with the highest attention to detail. Buyers have an amazing selection of homes situated within fourteen unique neighborhoods, each of them a tribute to a distinctive lifestyle.


Residents can enjoy a relaxing round of golf on the Jack Nicklaus designed Signature Golf Course or a delicious meal at the Golden Bear Club. Tennis enthusiasts and fitness fanatics are not forgotten, as the Golden Bear Golf Club offers fantastic amenities for both.
