New luxury homes in Orlando are definitely making a comeback. Having seen very few new luxury home communities being constructed over the last 5-6 years, we decided to catch up with the luxury home market in the Orlando area.
We defined luxury homes in Orlando as starting from around $500,00 and selected the principle areas of interest for local families and international buyers which we believe are best suited to their requirements.
We tracked down well over 20 new communities of luxury homes in Orlando, the majority of which are already under construction and with one or two late starters preparing to begin work in the coming months.
Areas such as Windermere and Dr Phillips are not just popular with locals and although there are not too many new homes being constructed we feel that the international and out of state buyers will be competing hard to purchase any new luxury homes which are sensibly priced and close to Disney.
Celebration also falls into the above scenario but to a lesser degree as this community is is more of a ‘mind-set’ than other similar neighborhoods.
Moving east, Lake Nona is living up to expectations as the place to live for families directly or indirectly involved in the medical science professions. Laureate Park which is based as close as you can get to Medical City is being built out by several well known builders and the choice of floor plans genuinely offers something for everyone.
Lake Nona Golf & Country Club also has several exceptional luxury golf homes on offer for those who appreciate a quieter place to call home set amongst manicured fairways and nature.
Closer to Downtown Orlando, Baldwin Park and Winter Park have some great offerings for those who wish to be closer to the Downtown vibe. Both locations come at a price and are probably best suited for families who are happy to walk to work, grabbing a coffee as they go from one of the local businesses.
Lake Mary and Heathrow have always been popular with wealthy families. Excellent golf course and estate homes in beautiful rural settings prevail and it is great to see some new luxury home communities starting up.
Gotha is probably the nearest equestrian area you can find close to Orlando. It has always been a sought after destination although generally off the radar for many families. Located between Windermere and Winter Garden, Gotha offers residents an opportunity to live in ‘Old Florida’ but to have the bright lights just a short drive away.
We finish off with Winter Garden and the Four Corners area to the west of Orlando where we found several new communities offering lakeside living at affordable prices. Access to Orlando is still quite good and you have the benefit of having a much shorter drive over to the gulf beaches.
