As Mayor Gary Bruhn has previously acknowledged, Windermere, an area of 1.57 square miles, is about 90% residential. But that’s how Windermere residents like it and partially why the West Orange town is so coveted.
Two luxury-home development projects — Estancia at Windermere and Rosser Reserve — are among the last remaining development properties in the town known for its beautiful lakes and estates.
Estancia, developed by Taylor Morrison, and Rosser Reserve, developed by Stockworth Realty group, are now nearing completion, with construction in the next few months focusing mostly on minor touch-ups, landscaping and the homes themselves.
Estancia, which is located on Maguire Road and held its grand opening in late October, will have a total of 50 estate homes and five different home designs to choose from. Taylor Morrison has just begun construction on sold homes, but also it will begin building move-in-ready homes for those who need to be in their home sooner than the typical build time cycle, which takes about eight months from the time of purchase.
“We have already sold two homes with more in the works and cannot wait to welcome more homeowners into the beautiful Estancia at Windermere community,” said Anna Almirall, a Taylor Morrison marketing manager.
Rosser Reserve, on the other hand, has sold one home from the 10 planned estate homes. The mansion-style homes will be custom-built from several approved high-end home builders that have already been vetted by other Windermere communities, such as Isleworth, Golden Oak and Keene’s Pointe.
Property manager Sue Prosser said the 11-acre community with lakefront property likely will be completed by the first week of January. The road infrastructure, roads and streetlights are done, and the gatehouse and walls are nearing completion. After the gatehouse and the wall are completed, all that will be left is landscaping for the prize community.
“Well, first of all, there’s no other lakefront lots left on that side in Windermere” Prosser said. “It’s gated and guarded, and it’s the only Windermere community that has Orange County Utilities’ septic and water.”
