About Doctor Phillips Homes For Sale & Orlando Real Estate
Doctor Phillips — From Orange Groves to Elegant Estates, Golf Courses & Restaurant Row
Doctor Phillips, Florida is a southwestern suburb of the Orlando Metro area. The area is named after Dr. Phillip Phillips, who owned thousands of citrus groves across Central Florida. His groves made him the owner of the world’s largest citrus growing production. Before Orlando was known for Disney World, it was known for its citrus and thanks to Dr. Phillips, Florida is still renowned for citrus production.
Citrus isn’t the only thing this neighborhood is good for. The area is one of the most luxurious in all of Orlando, located between the Butler Chain of Lakes and the Sand Lake Chain of Lakes, and is just a few minutes away from Windermere and Winter Garden. While the Downtown Orlando area is a good 20-minute drive, most residents find they have all they need and want in this community.
Because of its prime location, there’s no shortage of things to do. You can enjoy relaxing days on the lake, a serene round of golf at some of the top golf courses, including Bay Hill Golf & Country Club, or an exciting day at one of the nearby amusement parks.
All these same amenities make it perfect for families as well. Of course, schools are important to any family with young ones. Know that the public schools in Doctor Phillips have great ratings, especially Dr. Phillips Elementary School.
The nearby amusement parks provide a great opportunity for jobs (and fun!). The world-famous Disney World and Universal Studios are just outside the area’s boundaries, making a day-trip to one of the parks very simple.
