Waterleigh is a community in Winter Garden Florida. Waterleigh is a Horizons West neighborhood located on the western shore of Hickorynut Lake and is near both the Daniel Webster Western Beltway (the 492 Toll Road) and the Orange County National Golf Course. If you are from outside the area it is 17 miles SW of downtown Orlando.
Waterleigh is the finest DR Horton community in central Florida. The community is being constructed in phases and each phase seems to be even better than the previous one. The latest phase includes both townhomes and traditional homes. In total this neighborhood we be approximately 1,400 acres when the Southern portion is completed. Waterleigh will be one of the largest and most spectacular communities in Horizons West.
Waterleigh is a Dr Horton community featuring many homes from the Emerald Homes Line. Recently Dr Horton began constructing all 2 story homes in Waterleigh differently. Now not only the first floor is CBS construction but also the second. This is a major step forward and will no doubt have a positive effect on the communities value and reputation. Similar construction can be found in Casabella at Windermere but for a much higher price.
The Waterleigh amenities have to be great. The surrounding competition is fierce. Hamlin, Independence, Watermark and Royal Cypress Preserve are all excellent. Dr. Horton knew this and the first community pool has many features surrounding it. A miniature putting course, volleyball, tables and Grills, small fitness center and a great exercise trail. The Southern amenities center is already under construction and is quite large. The pool there will be also. You can see many of the amenities in the slideshow below. Either community pool is a place you would be proud to take your family or visitors.
Just North of Waterside is Independence and Hamlin. There have been 700 acres set aside there for the best shopping and lifestyle experience in the area. They have already broken ground and set the Walls for the best theater likely in all of the Orlando area. Cinepolis Luxury Cinema is a dine in theater with luxury seating and 10 screens.
Along the shores of Lake Hancock expect 3-5 restaurants to compete for your dollar as well. If you have not been there yet there is already a Publix and a Walmart Supercenter with many other stores soon to be completed. The Horizons West master plan should wrap up by late 2040 so expect no slowdown in local modernization.
Commuting from Waterleigh is a snap with the Daniel Webster nearby. Once on the 429 you can miss most traffic and be well on your way to downtown Orlando, Tampa or where ever you choose. Downtown Orlando is approximately 30 minutes once you get rolling. I often do it in less but when you combine the averages with rush hour then from the nearest ramp expect a 30-minute average. Many residents will never stray far. Recently it was announced that there will be a Publix and shopping complex built just south of the communities main entrance.
Use us to assist with any purchase or home sale
Many first time buyers are not aware of the benefits of getting outside representation when buying a new home. It seems normal and easier to just walk into the showroom at a new community, register, select and purchase. Realistically the process is one of the most expensive you will ever go through.
Ask yourself if you would likely be better or at least more informed if you had been through the process more than once? How about if you had purchased 50 or more homes from builders? Why not have an outside adviser and personnel assistant when it comes at absolutely no expense to you? Once you use a professional local Realtor you will never buy a new home any other way.
