Lake Down real estate is a beautiful, but lesser known, market for lake homes and land in Florida.
Lake Down is located in Central Florida's Orange County. Lake Down is a mere half hour drive from Orlando, just over 14 miles outside the city.
Lake Down belongs to a series of 13 lakes in the Wintermere area of Central Florida known as The Butler Chain of Lakes.
Given that it covers an area of almost 900 acres, and has an average depth of 20 feet, Lake Down is one of the largest bodies of water in The Chain.
Accessible via public ramp, boaters enjoy Lake Down for its variable size. Skiing is permitted on this body of water, however water safety laws are strictly enforced.
Anglers take to the public pier in order to angle varying types of fish, including bluegill, redear sunfish, black crappie, chain pickerel, and largemouth bass.
Being that Lake Down is only a short drive to Orlando, Disney World and Universal Studio Resorts are readily available destinations for Lake Down property owners.
Lake Down is adjacent to Wintermere Country Club, requiring only a three mile drive. Wintermere Country Club features an 18-hole golf course as well as club amenities such as a clubhouse, pool, bar.
Lake Down features the beauty of multiple bodies of water and is perfect for boating and sailing.
