Something we all strive for. Although few of us ever actually attain it. In a way it depends on how it is defined. I like to think of it in three brackets. Luxurious, Luxury'ish and living comfortably. I have spent most of my life living comfortably. For that I am thankful. I have also made sure that from now till the time I die I will at least live comfortably.
This is a real estate site. So for the sake of staying true to that I will focus my definitions to that of housing. To me living comfortably in Windermere is defined as $400,000-$600,000 worth of home in a neighborhood where all of the homes are of similar value. I currently live lakefront on a large lake and it is comfortable. Although I do not like being so close to my neighbors.
Luxury'ish to me is from $600,000 dollars to $1,000,000 worth of home here in Windermere Florida. Or over in Winter Garden on one of the nicer lakes. A Windermere home would either have to have a large property with a great pool or be on a lake. A Oxford Moor home would be a good example of Luxury'ish in Windermere.
However this article and page is committed to 'Luxury Living in the Orlando area. I define the Orlando area as within 20 miles from the center of the city. I know that is large but, when in another state people within that radius will often just say they live in Orlando. It is easier than explaining Ocoee or a similar town's name. I also believe a million dollar luxury home can be defined as a Single Family Home a Condo or even a Townhome in the right place. So I will break them down in that manner.
Single Family homes priced over a million dollars should be gated. I will focus this list on gated communities and not single million dollar homes that happen to have a gated driveway. Here is a list of gated communities within 20 miles of the center of Orlando that have homes for over $1,000,000 in them. Click on the community and you will see the homes over one million dollars that are currently for sale in the gated communities. Click on the city and see all of the homes for sale in the city over 1 million dollars. Currently there are 245 Single Family Homes for sale in gated communities within 20 miles of the center of Orlando.
I included the cities million dollar listings because sometimes agents do not properly mark the subdivisions. So a quick look at the cities list of homes gives an accurate depiction of that area. As you can see Windermere rules the day with plenty of million dollar homes available. However who has the most million dollar Condo's ?
Ok so what about Condo's?
No real surprise here. In fact I lowered the price from $500,000 to unlimited for Townhomes and Villas. Orlando, Winter Park and believe it or not Celebration. Your winners in that order.
