Our comprehensive knowledge of the greater Orlando region and its dynamic, complex real estate market means that whatever your needs, budget, or taste, we can guide you to the Orlando home that’s perfect for you, and through every step of the buying process. Below are just five of the many Central Florida communities we serve, which we believe offer some of the most exciting real estate Orlando has to offer.
UNIQUE AND EXCITING ORLANDO NEIGHBORHOODS – Lake Nona
Lake Nona is a fast-growing community near the Orlando International Airport with housing options catering to a wide range of budgets and tastes. Originally planned as a major golf resort destination, Lake Nona is home to the Isleworth and Lake Nona country clubs, whose golf professionals compete to bring glory to their respective clubs in the annual Tavistock Cup.
But Lake Nona isn’t all fun and games, as the internationally renowned Lake Nona Medical City has proven since its opening in 2010. This 650-acre health-sciences park is home to cutting-edge medical research facilities like U.C.F.’s college of medicine and the Sandford-Burnham Medical Research Institute. This combination of industry and recreation has made Lake Nona one of the fastest-growing communities in Central Florida.
UNIQUE AND EXCITING ORLANDO NEIGHBORHOODS – College Park
College Park is a quaint neighborhood featuring many restored historic homes and oak-lined streets, whose charm persists in spite of, and is maybe even amplified by, its extreme proximity to downtown Orlando. This harmonious blend of small-town and big-city appeals has made College Park popular with both seniors and young urban professionals for the last century.
Named for its network of college-themed roads like Princeton Street and Harvard Street, College Park lives up to its erudite title with a rich and ongoing literary tradition. As the one-time residence of famed beat author Jack Kerouac, today College Park operates the Kerouac Project, a non-profit “writer’s residence” for up-and-coming poets and authors, out of his old home.
UNIQUE AND EXCITING ORLANDO NEIGHBORHOODS – Windermere
Home to a star-studded population of famous athletes and celebrity entertainers, Windermere is one of Florida’s most affluent neighborhoods. Golf courses, picturesque lakes, and luxury mansions feel worlds apart from Orlando’s urban sprawl, but at just 20 minutes from downtown, and just 15 from Disney World, you’re never more than a short jaunt from all the convenience and excitement the city has to offer.
Outstanding safety and school ratings have made Windermere a popular destination for families, while its convenient location and exclusivity continue to attract successful working professionals. Whatever category you fall into, Authentic Real Estate Team can help make buying a home in this dream community a reality.
UNIQUE AND EXCITING ORLANDO NEIGHBORHOODS – Winter Park
Winter Park was developed in the 1920’s as a resort town for snowbirds, and while today it’s also home to a diverse population of year-round residents, its moneyed origins are still evident in its abundance of upscale homes, shops, and restaurants, all set among moss-draped oaks on elegant brick roads.
Winter Park is a city of harmonious contrast. Home to Rollins College, Florida’s oldest university, it has a vibrant youth culture to complement its middle-aged, upper middle class demographic. And with a yearly sidewalk art festival, a handful of art museums, and commissioned murals on the exteriors of many local businesses, Winter Park’s quirky art scene balances the refined, conservative side of its character perfectly.
UNIQUE AND EXCITING ORLANDO NEIGHBORHOODS – Celebration
The town of Celebration was the brainchild of none other than Walt Disney himself, and though he didn’t live to see its completion, his magical vision lives on in this enchanting master-planned community. With Disney, the magic has always been in the details. So when Celebration opened in the 1990’s, developers made sure every detail had been scrupulously rendered, and Walt’s vision ardently honored. Some of these details include charming brick streets, homes and businesses designed by renowned architects, and a uniquely pedestrian-friendly infrastructure.
Though technically part of Kissimmee, Celebration has a distinct character all its own. A strong sense of community is fostered by events like an exotic car festival, an Oktoberfest party, and fall and winter celebrations incorporating manmade leaves and snow, respectively, while abundant shops and restaurants make the town a self-contained oasis from the surrounding city.
If the magic of Disney has you under its spell, Authentic Real Estate Team has your ticket to the celebration.
