In Central Florida, we have many communities that have garnered national attention and prestige, but none is as acclaimed or renowned as Isleworth. Located in Windermere, FL, Isleworth saw its fist residents move in 25 years ago, and the community is just as sought after now as it was at its inception.

The property has garnered much attention over the years for its celebrity inhabitants. Legendary golfer Arnold Palmer, was the first, but he has been followed by Shaquille O’Neal, and Tiger Woods to name a few. The community consists of 320 homes with most of the inhabitants living their on a full-time basis, and in this current real estate market, there are typically 10 percent of the homes on the market at any given time.

Nestled amongst the shores of the Butler Chain of Lakes, the Isleworth Golf Community features an Arnold Palmer golf course that even after 25 years is regarded as of the most difficult and scenic courses in Florida. The community offers a number of events throughout the year for its members, including the Tavistock Cup. The grounds include several tennis courts, a sculpture garden, and the world class clubhouse that features 3 restaurants. Isleworth offers its residents the epitome of luxury and class and a location that can not be beat. 35 of the original families in Isleworth still call it home today. A 25 year commitment shows how much the residents truly believe in an enjoy Isleworth!

Golden Oak Event

Beautiful home for sale in Disney's Golden Oak
The lovely Da Vinci Home found in the Golden Oak Community

Last week, we were pleased to attend a wonderful event at Golden Oak at Walt Disney World. The event allowed select Realtors the opportunity to view some of the builder models and discuss with the builders the options selected for those homes and other choices available for future buyers.

We toured 3 Village Homes in Kimball Trace as well as 3 Estate Homes. Each home was done by a different builder -­‐ Jones-­‐Clayton Construction, Cahill, Goering & Morgan Construction, Issa Homes, Derrick Builders, and Ray Coudriet Builder.

As we were driven around to the different areas, we enjoyed the view of the grounds and mature landscaping, some wildlife (including deer), and the overall beauty of the community. We were also notified that the 3 Village Home Models are being offered for sale now with a leaseback to the builder. These are homes are outfitted in every way imaginable with gorgeous furnishing and decor. If this is something of interest to you, we would be happy to provide with you with the information and set up an appointment for you to view the homes.
