Overview

The historic town of Windermere was established in 1889. In 2004, the census estimated the population at 1,958. Known for its dirt roads and quaint atmosphere, Windermere is one of a dying breed of towns that has maintained that unique small-town feel that visitors and locals alike find so endearing.

Located in the town of Windermere, the Butler Chain of lakes is considered one of Florida’s most sought-after areas of lakefront property. The chain encompasses eleven lakes (Lake Butler, Lake Tibet, Lake Down, Lake Sheen, Lake Louise, Lake Chase, Pocket Lake, Lake Blanche, Wauseon Bay, Lake Isleworth, and Little Fish Lake), which have been recognized for their high water quality and animal habitats as “Outstanding Florida Waters” by Florida’s Department of Environmental Regulation.

Shaq’s House and Famous Windermere Residents

The Butler Chain of lakes has gained notoriety in recent years through high-profile residents who call Windermere their home. Shaquille O’Neil, Ken Griffey, Jr., Tiger Woods, Wesley Snipes, Planet Hollywood CEO Robert Earl, and Mark O’Meara are among many of the celebrities who enjoy this area’s magnificent lakefront views from their back yards.

Windermere’s Growing Pains

The areas of the southwest corner of Orange County and adjacent Lake County have exploded in growth in recent years, and Windermere with its small town charm has found itself wrestling with increasingly difficult issues of growth management.

The map below does a nice job of explaining the crux of the issue – the close proximity of Lake Down, Lake Butler and Lake Bessie combined with the layout of Main Street (fed by Maguire Road out of the Ocoee area) and Conroy-Windermere Road (out of the Metrowest area) has created a situation where so much of the traffic heading to the newer communities on the southwest part of town funnels through downtown Windermere. Despite these issues of growth, most everyone we know in Windermere wouldn’t trade it for any other location. Soaring property values, the serenity of the natural settings, and the small town charm combine to create one of the State’s most desirable lakefront communities.

Lake Info

Recreationally, the Windermere lakes offer phenomenal outlets both for waterskiing and fishing. All but Little Fish Lake are greater than 50 acres in surface area, providing more than ample space for ski boats and WaveRunners. Clear water, deep ledges and abundant vegetation foster plentiful schools of largemouth bass and bluegill, providing lucrative fishing year-round.

    Boat Ramps

    Public access is available through two boat ramps:

    1. Free entry is on Lake Down right off of Conroy-Windermere Rd. There, you will find a single-lane paved ramp with neither a dock nor any parking.

    2. However, Lake Isleworth is accessible for $5/day or $150/year at the R.D. Keene Park and Boat Ramp on 10900 Chase Road. There is a paved double-lane ramp at the R.D. Keene Park, where you will also find a playground and multiple soccer fields.

    The R.D. Keene Park may be contacted by phone at (407) 876-6696.

    Community / School Info

    What Our Clients Say

    Mike and Monica and their team are outstanding, dependable, honest and honorable. There is a chance he is part magicia and as well, because no one expected our house to sell so quickly or for the price we wanted!

    Monica helped us find the perfect lakefront estate and was amazing in helping us negotiate a deal we felt was fair for all parties.  We highly recommend Derenthal-Cook.

    Without hesitation, I can refer Mike as a true professional who will make the sale of your home his top priority.

    If you want someone you can trust and who will tell it to you straight, yet is also totally sympathetic to your concerns, give Mike a call.

    I can say with full confidence that Mike would treat anyone as well as he has me and my family.
