Why Residents Love The Area

Robert & Cathy wanted to be as close to the Magic Kingdom as possible! They decided to purchase a townhome that was directly behind Disney Property (Oasis Cove) so they can quickly be at the Disney parks at a moment’s notice.

Greg and Dielke bought a beautiful home on half an acre. They purchased a completely remodelled 1990’s home because they loved the quiet neighborhood, proximity to Disney World, and the stately feel of the home.

Things to Consider about Windermere

  • Windermere is mostly residential, you’ll have to venture to Winter Garden or Dr. Phillips for most shopping (other than Publix)
  • Older homes may need remodeling to meet the needs of today’s buyers.
