A Taste of Windermere

The large majority of residents are affluent married couples with children.

While the Windermere real estate market does have a selection of townhomes, condos, and older ranch homes starting around $180,000, the area's true bread and butter is its fine collection of luxury waterside homes which typically sell for over $1 million. Nearly 40 percent of homes in Windermere are located along the waterfront along the Butler Chain of Lakes. These properties range from Spanish villas, to island-resort-like homes, to Colonial mansions, to 18-acre lakefront estates. No expense is spared in these homes, as they typically include heated pools and spas, three-car garages, lavish gardens, and private boat docks.

The most sought-after homes are in gated luxury lakefront communities like Reserve at Belmere, Isleworth, and Reserve at Lake Butler Sound. There are also gated golf course communities such as Keene's Point. These exclusive neighborhoods with homes designed by many of the country's best architects and designers carry an esteemed legacy of celebrity home owners.
