Since not everyone is from this area . Deer Island is an exclusive gated community 16.3 miles (26.3 km) West of downtown Orlando. It is actually an island/ peninsula located center North on Johns Lake.There are not a lot of communities like Deer Island in the area. However there is a lot of new construction going on in Winter Garden. I can also schedule us to see several similar homes for sale in nearby areas if you prefer.
Deer Island consists of 125 homes/home sites. 83 homes are lakefront homes on Johns Lake.There are 5 pond front homes as well. Normally there are only 1-2 homes for sale here. There is a park area with a tennis court and a full size basketball court. There is also a nice path by the large pond in the center of the community.
Tildenville Elementary, Lakeview Middle School and West Orange High School. Always confirm the schools with the county when looking at a home for sale. Information changes. If it is important to you I will check it. Or I can search for homes that are for sale by school zone. I am very familiar with the county website. I do not ever use the MLS for finding out which schools provide local education for a home or neighborhood.
In the past 12 months 4 homes for sale have sold (Some homes for sale do not). The lowest priced home sold for $565,500 and the highest priced home sold for $850,000. The highest priced home for sale to have ever sold was $2,050,000. However, the median sales price for the last 12 months has been $710,000.
For the HOA expect around $100 per month. It will vary and there are restrictions. I will get you all the information you want upon request.
So, what to do now?
Most people start searching for a home about 1 year before a purchase. No matter how early on in your search having the benefit of a local professional with the knowledge can only be beneficial. I suggest you contact us and we can talk about your interests. Often we know of homes which are not listed for sale publicly etc. We have decades of experience and would love to speak with you about a dream home, or any Deer Island homes for sale.
