Winter Park FL Real Estate

Winter Park is a city in Orange County, Florida, with a population of approximately 29,000 people. The city is home to Rollins College, Full Sail University and the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, which houses the largest collection of Tiffany glass on Earth. Winter Park enjoys more parkspace per capita than any other city in Florida.

Winter Park was founded as a resort destination by New England Industrialists before the turn of the 20th century. It is recognized as the first centrally planned community in Florida; its main street includes not only public civic and retail buildings, but also art galleries, a private liberal arts college, museums, a park, a train station, a golf course country club, a historic cemetery, and a beach and boat launch. Winter Park is celebrated for a sense of place and history, uncommon to many parts of Central Florida. Many structures are more than 100 years old. The scenic "olde Winter Park" area is punctuated by small, winding brick streets, and a canopy of old Southern Live Oak and Camphor trees, draped with Spanish Moss. The city draws thousands of visitors to annual festivals including the Bach Festival, the nationally ranked Sidewalk Art Festival, and the Winter Park Concours d'Elegance.

In 1885, the Congregational Assembly of Florida started Rollins College, the state's first four-year college. The following year saw the opening of the Seminole Hotel on Lake Osceola, a grand resort complete with the luxuries of the day: gas lights, steam heat, a string orchestra, a formal dining room, a bowling alley, and long covered porches. It was the largest hotel in Florida.  

Winter Park is located about 5 miles northeast of Orlando. Elevation ranges between 66 and 97 feet above sea level. According to the US Census Bureau, the city encompasses a total area of 8.6 square miles. The City of Winter Park is nestled among the Winter Park Chain of Lakes, a series of aquifer-fed lakes interconnected by a series of navigable canals, which were originally created for flood control and to run logs to a sawmill on present day Lake Virginia. The lakes are popular for boating, watersports, fishing, and swimming.

The city is traversed by the old Orlando-Oviedo railroad bed, which, until the 1960s had a stop at Lake Virginia/Rollins College at the city park, now known as "Dinky Dock." Much of this right of way has been converted to a rail-to-trail pedestrian/biking path - in the form of the Cady Way Trail, which leads from Cady Way Park toward the Baldwin Park neighborhood and Downtown Orlando, and in the opposite direction to Oviedo and beyond (via the Florida trail), thanks to a new pedestrian bridge spanning Semoran Boulevard (SR 436) in Orange County.

Due to its close proximity to Orlando, Winter Park is a city which many commuters use to access Downtown Orlando. Due to its local governments desire to preserve it's downtown, keep it pedestrian friendly, and emphasize the arts and scenic charm, Winter Park has traditionally attracted an eclectic mix of residents - wealthy Northerners, patrons of the arts, Old Florida families, artists, students, vacationers and idealists.

There are many wonderful homes in this area, but you need a local market expert to help you. Watson Realty Corp is a locally owned company with over 40 years experience selling homes in the area.
