I have been blessed to have lived on the water several times. I was raised near a large lake with beautiful clear creeks which bubbled up out of the ground. Maybe these fond memories helped shape my love for living on the water. Maybe it was fishing with my grandfather or maybe it was something much simpler. Either way I do enjoy it and I currently live on Speer Lake in Winter Garden Florida. Just a 20'ish minutes from downtown Orlando. I watch the sun come up over the water every morning and really love it.
Currently there are nearly 250 homes for sale in Orlando and Windermere that are lakefront. I did not search for pond front or canal front. Both of those can be great but sometimes not so great. Windermere has to be included in any search for lakefront homes around Orlando. The reason is most of the nicest homes are in Windermere. Besides in some places Windermere is directly across the street from Orlando.
112 of those waterfront homes are over one million dollars. The most expensive home is in The Reserve at Lake Butler Sound and is over $18,000,000. It would not be the most expensive if the Versailles Mansion in LBS was finished. It may be as much as $100,000,000 when finished. You can see them both here. Lake Butler Sound was tied with Isleworth for the most million dollar lakefront homes for sale. No surprise there, they are both in Windermere Florida.
There were 30 Orlando waterfront homes for $500,000 or under. Hunters Creek was the winner in this department with 3 homes for sale in this group. You can see Hunter's Creek here. Hunters creek is a nice community and there are many others in the Orlando area which most of us would be quite happy with. Lakefront would just be a perk. If you just looked for waterfront you would find 325 homes. Orlando and Windermere are filled with small ponds and lakes and most of them have homes where ever possible. Kissimmee is rapidly becoming the same way.
