About Clermont

Clermont has the highest elevation in Central Florida. With so many hills and elevation changes, it’s hard to imagine you’re only 30 minutes from Disney! Forget swamps and marshes, Clermont feels like a small Northern town combined with Southern live oaks and Spanish moss. Clermont offers affordable homes, a friendly atmosphere, and the subtlest of nods to Disney – Short-term rental homes like Airbnb are harder to find in Clermont. 

Once you visit Clermont, it’s easy to see the charm: Clermont is residential, family-focused, and poised for growth. Much of Clermont is still farmland, but new home subdivisions are literally changing the landscape.

Why Residents Love The Area

Jeff & Christine moved to Clermont because they wanted to raise their two daughters in a quieter section of Orlando in a gated neighborhood. They also wanted to be less than 30 minutes to Disney.

Scott & Kim are active cyclists, Disney fans, and wanted to be close to the popular West Orange bike trail in Winter Garden. The Winter Garden price point was higher than the couple wanted, but we found a new build community in Clermont with the perfect price and distance to the trails.

  • Distance: Clermont is geographically far from other areas of Orlando
