Windermere, Florida, is a small town in Orange County, the home of Disneyworld. With the motto 'among the lakes,' it is no surprise that it boasts an array of housing designed for those whose lifestyle demands access to or a scenic look at a watery environment. Listings run to the high end and regularly rank with America's most expensive. An 8-bedroom lakeside home with arches and travertine floors is not an unusual offering. It is a good time to buy in the area, as home price values continue to increase-better than 14 percent in recent years.
