One of the most desirable places to build a custom home in Orange County is Winter Park, a suburban city just north of downtown Orlando with a population of approximately 28,000 residents. A gem inside of the City Beautiful, Winter Park has a genteel and classic feel while also being a vibrant arts and culture community.

Within the Winter Park city limits are Rollins College (Florida’s first four-year University), Full Sail University, and the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art, which houses the world’s most comprehensive collection of Tiffany glass.

Winter Park features 70 open park spaces within it’s 9 square miles, gorgeous neighborhoods, golf courses, and a popular shopping district along the main street of Park Avenue. It is also known for the Winter Park Chain of Lakes, which consists of a series of six spring-fed lakes interconnected by canals. Winter Park lakes are popular destinations for boating, water sports, fishing, swimming and prime real estate.

Winter Park was founded in 1882 as a resort community by northern business magnates in the late 19th and early 20th centuries and was incorporated within the Florida legislature by the Winter Park Company in 1885. Art and culture-rich, downtown Winter Park includes civic buildings, retail, art galleries, Rollins College, museums, a park, a train station, a golf course country club, a historic cemetery, and a beach and boat launch. It is host every year to the popular Winter Park Sidewalk Art Festival.
