Horizon West

Upon eventual completion, Horizon West to the south of Windermere will contain five to seven separate villages, centered around Horizon West Town Center. These villages will range in size from 1,000 to 3,000 acres, as part of the overall planned community of 30,000 acres. Ideally situated in Orange County, to the North West of Disney World, this is one of the fastest growing areas in the whole Orlando region.

Recreation & Leisure

With the jewel of the crown being the massive West Sports-plex Recreational Facility, residents place a high value on the abundance of leisure activities on their doorstep. Walking trails, cycling tracks, horse riding locations and parks are amongst the highlights.

For golfers, Horizon West accommodates The Orange County National Golf Center, while boaters don’t have to travel far either, as the RD Keen Park and Boat Ramp, which gives access to the Butler Chain of Lakes, is just outside of the area.

The West Orange Bike Trail is in Winter Garden, a little to the North.

As if this wasn’t enough, the absolute Happiest Place on Earth, Walt Disney World Resort, is a Southern neighbour of Horizon West.


Life can be lived to the maximum with exciting new developments planned, both commercially and in terms of community, aiming to provide residents with a delightful place to live and work.

Hamlin Town Center, Lakeside Village Windermere, Westside Shoppes and Windermere Village are just some of the shopping centers within easy reach of Horizon West, with even more under construction.

Transport Links

With such good highway links, the successful development is guaranteed, as State Road 429 stretches over 32 miles, connecting Interstate 4 with Apopka, and providing quick and easy access to Horizon West. As most of Central Florida is linked by this road as well, it could easily be referred to as metro Orlando’s western beltway. 

With all of the above considered, let’s take a closer look at the specific Horizon West Communities that you could make your new home.

Homes Available in Horizon West

There is some of variety in terms of the types of homes available in Horizon West, although the overwhelming majority of homes sit within new urbanism neighborhoods. These neighborhoods feature “downtown” for larger areas and smaller shopping areas for the smaller, more traditional neighborhoods.

All of the major builders in the area are present in the Horizon West area, including: DR Horton, Ashton Woods, KB Home, Lennar, Meritage Homes, M/I Homes, Park Square Homes, Pulte Homes, Ryan Homes, Royal Oak Homes, Standard Pacific Homes, Taylor Morrison, Toll Brothers with a few more to boot.

Education in Horizon West

Keene’s Crossing, Lake Whitney, Sunset Park, Whispering Oaks Sunridge and Windermere Elementary are among the many elementary schools in the area, whilst Middle Schools include Bridgewater and Sunridge, with the new Windermere High School serving the majority of the area.

There are two private schools as well, in Foundation Academy and Windermere Prep School.

The number of elementary, middle and high schools will grow as the area grows and so neighborhood zoning is likely to change in the future.
