Two of the largest and most impressive lakes in the Butler Chain. A much broader area is commonly referred to as Windermere because of the value of its’ name. Typically, all of the 34786 zip-code is referred to as if it were the city.
You can hear several different stories on how the city received its’ name. The most probable answer is that it was named by a Dr. Stanley Scott. He received 160 acres from his father on the shores of Lake Butler and named it Windermere. The name Windermere is thought to have most likely come from the largest lake in England. Mere does mean broad expanse of shallow water, so maybe that was the thought while Dr. Scott looked across Lake Butler.
Windermere today is obviously much more than it was in the early and mid’ 1900’s. The city has very few of the older homes in premium locations. There are more than enough buyers watching for opportunities to get that precious lakefront or lakeview property secured for themselves. You can drive down dirt roads in the city limits and see million-dollar properties in some surprising places. Large beautiful trees and magnificent lake views around every corner.
The area known as Windermere is actually quite expansive and includes some very nice areas. Isleworth, Keene’s Pointe and The Golden Bear Club are a couple of the finest golf courses in America. The area however is not just limited to those. Adding to the long list of things making this area special is the many miles of shoreline provided by the local lakes and even some large un-named lakes. Some of the most beautiful bodies of water and waterfront homes in all of Florida are viewable from boats as you traverse the 13 lakes of the Butler Chain. Many notable names could be listed who have purchased properties along these very shores. After learning of and viewing the area, hopefully your name will be on the same list.
