Windermere was established in 1889 and has been the residence of professional golfer Tiger Woods since 1997 as well as other professional sports figures. However, many celebrities such as Woods actually live in the Isleworth gated community/subdivision which is outside the town limits of Windermere, but utilize the Windermere mailing address.
A family friendly community, Windermere has the best of all worlds. With lakefront homes, a small town center, but a close proximity to fine dining, exquisite shopping and easy access to major highways, Windermere has it all.
Houses by the waterfront usually sell for millions, while single-family homes run for six figures. Buyers after long-term homes should invest in waterfront homes. Single-family houses are often spacious enough and elegant, complete with well-appointed bedrooms and bathrooms and classically designed exteriors. Windermere also boasts several gated communities, such as Isleworth and Keene’s Pointe. These gated communities provide complete privacy while being located near the urban centers.
