Celebrities in Windermere – Which Celebs Live in Central Florida?
Windermere, Florida is home to many celebrities who enjoy the region’s many amenities, from the Orlando International Airport situated a stone’s throw away, to two of the region’s most elite country clubs, including the Lake Nona Country Club and the Isleworth Country Club.
Windermere’s Isleworth gated community is home to many celebrities, who enjoy the country club’s beautiful location amidst a picturesque chain of lakes and its world famous country club. In fact, famous celebrity golfers such as Tiger Woods, Paula Creamer, Stuart Appleby, Robert Allenby, Lee Janzen and Charles Howell III call Isleworth home, and they can frequently be spotted on the country club golf course.
Isleworth is also home to a number of other prominent athletes, including Barry Larkin, Ken Griffey, Jr. and Shaquille O’Neal, Dwight Howard and Grant Hill (although it’s believed that only Ken Griffey, Jr. and Barry Larkin still call Isleworth home today.) MLB player Johnny Damon actually grew up in Windermere and still maintains a home locally.
Actor Wesley Snipes also calls Isleworth home. Former residents include members of iconic boy bands such as N’Sync and The Backstreet Boys. In fact, Lou Perlman, the manager who elevated both groups to stardom, also lived locally for many years.
The nearby Bay Hill community, situated in the famous Dr. Phillips neighborhood, is situated a few miles away from Windermere’s Isleworth gated community. Bay Hill has hosted a number of PGA tournaments, and it has been home to golf celebrities such as Payne Stewart and Arnold Palmer.
Another popular, upscale gated community in Windermere is Butler Bay.
Windermere Florida is home to Windermere Preparatory School, a private school with kindergarten through grade 12 students. Public school students attend Windermere Elementary School and Gotha Middle School, while local high school students attend the Orange County Public Schools.
