A Windermere home will soon be an international star. 

The home on 34 Pine St. in the town of Windermere will air in Germany, Austria and Switzerland as a part of a documentary called “My Life in Florida.” The documentary will be shown on Taff.

“It is one of the most popular shows in Germany,” filmmaker Michael Hawich said. “Two million people view it.”

Hawich’s documentary follows the lives of 12 people who moved to the U.S. from Germany. One of these people is Claudia Mundlos, a Realtor with Charles Rutenberg Realty. In the documentary, she is depicted showing the house at 34 Pine St. to a family. Hawich often documents the lives of Germans living abroad, as it is of interest to people back home. 

“I think everybody fantasizes about life abroad, especially if it is in an exotic place,” Mundlos said. “People at home want to see how those people are doing.”

The home is currently listed by Mundlos’ colleague, Jan Sample. 

“It’s kind of interesting to think that it will be shown in Germany,” said current homeowner Terry Wiler.

Mundlos selected this home for the documentary because it was a luxury home on the water, and it is also close to Walt Disney World. The home also allows viewers to see the charm of the Central Florida area, separate from the theme parks. 

“It has a beautiful view, a beautiful pool … also because the location,” she said. “It’s very upscale area, and I think people in Germany would like to see those type of areas.”

The two-story home is located within the town of Windermere on the Wauseon Bay, which is on the Butler Chain of Lakes. It faces to the west, so homeowners can watch the sunset over the Wauseon Bay. It includes a screened-in patio with a pool and a boathouse to prepare for days on the lake. 

“It’s one of the prettiest places in Central Florida, because of the water quality and the quality of the lakes,” said Sample. “It’s so scenic, and it’s so natural.”

“The sunsets here are absolutely amazing, and the Wauseon Bay is one of the cleanest lakes on the Butler chain,” said current homeowner Rebecca Wiler. 

Inside the house, there are five bedrooms, six bathrooms and 7,162 square feet, as well as a three-car garage.
