Is Windermere The Place For You?
Windermere may be one of the most unique towns in the Orlando Metropolitan area. Named for the largest lake in England, Windermere is a small town of 2,040, but it is also one of the wealthiest locations in the Orlando Metro area. Windermere is surrounded by upscale gated communities, many of which are home to professional athletes such as Tiger Woods. Many of the people live in or visit Windermere because they want privacy and want to enjoy the comforts of small town living. The city works hard to oblige its residents and visitors by limiting heavy vehicles from entering to preserve its roads and limiting traffic in many areas to locals only.
Surrounded By Gorgeous Sand Bottom Lakes
Living or vacationing in Windermere provides you access to a variety of leisure activities. The town’s location provides easy access to all the theme parks, shopping malls, world class restaurants, and concert venues that Orlando has to offer. On the side of small town appeal, Windermere is surrounded by gorgeous sand bottom lakes that are ideal for swimming, fishing, and boating, and the town’s quaint Main Street is home to some lovely shopping boutiques and local restaurants. For the avid golfer, Windermere is home to several immaculate country clubs, including the Golden Bear Club at Keene’s Pointe. The Golden Bear Club is a Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course that has breathtaking vistas and challenging holes that every golfer would enjoy and appreciate. Looking to increase self sufficiency for the residents of Windermere, investors are planning to expand and create downtown shopping complexes that are in step with the small hometown feel that the town and its residents are trying to maintain.
Among America's Top 15% Wealthiest Communities
Overall the population of Windermere is quite affluent. With a median income of $94,556, the town is among the top 15% wealthiest communities in America. Windermere is also a very family oriented town with an average family size of 3.05 and 70.3% of homes being married couples living together. The town also offers several quality public and private schools for families to choose from. NeighborhoodScout, a search engine for homebuyers, recently issued a special report indentifying Windermere as the best town for families and children in Florida. They drew this conclusion by analyzing data from the National Center for Education Statistics, the US Bureau of Census, the US Justice Department, the FBI, and the Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight.
Homes Maintain Strong Value Through Tough Times
Windermere is the ideal location for someone who wants to live or vacation in a small town with charm and privacy, but who also wants to enjoy the finer things at the same time. The homes here are smart economic investments, as they have maintained strong values even through the economic downturn. The development going on to expand the shopping, dining, and amenities offered in town will only increase home values as Windermere becomes a self-sufficient microcosm. Owning a home in a city where the homeowners and town officials are so actively involved in preserving the value of their homes and investments makes Windermere a good investment option for any home buyer.
