Two areas come to mind immediately -- Dr. Phillips and Lake Nona. Both fit the criteria of the questioner. You can get more house for your money in Lake Nona and the propspects for appreciation are better as well. But Dr. Phillips will always have the best location for both those who love the parks and want top notch schools.
To those of you still looking, good luck,

The quick answer is that you should be able to find a home that meets your needs. The first question regarding schools will depend on the age of your children and whether or not you are looking for public or private schools. If you want information on all schools in the area, please feel free to visit my website and take a look or call me at 407-421-3002 and I will be glad to assist you.
The Lake Nona area is offering anticipated growth. Nemours Childrens Hospital, UCF School of Nursing, VA Hospital and Burnham Cancer Institute will all be in one concentrated area. In addition to a large outside shopping maul and new high school,middle and elementary schools have been and are still being built in the area.Now is the time to buy and you will be within the 30-40 minute drive of all Amusement Parks. Best of all you will be only 10-15 minutes from the airport. Only 45 minutes from Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach. Look forward to hearing from you.

Have a great day Sir,

You have two main roads that intersect in Claremont, routes 50 & 27, extremely busy roads. The terrain is hilly, yes hilly so with the zero lot lines you see tons of roofs, most buy in the older areas to avoid this look.
The retail is just now catching up with the boom of houses. My wife currently works at a subdivision not far, Sugarloaf Mountain, it doesn't fit your criteria just saying this because we spend a lot of time in the area and researching online, also the son in law works for a builder with offices in the area.
West Orange bike trail is just up route 50, when I was mountain bike training I would ride up to 100+ miles on this trail every weekend over the last 12 years, gave me the ability to watch the changes happen. http://www.dep.state.fl.us/gwt/guide/regions/eastcentral/tra
There is an approved 4 square mile development coming down the pike just up the road in Mineola (next town, couple of miles)
Age is mixed, kids, young adults, families and retirees
Because of the explosive small town growth, outside of most larger communities not as amenity friendly like established areas of Maitland, Lake Mary etc..., but this is changing just takes time.
As far as safe neighborhoods there are web sites that will give you this info in detail, but I havenâ€™t heard of any major problems.
Schools, again check out the web sites for f-cat scores a good site for this is Great Schools http://www.greatschools.net/city/Clermont/FL is a good site, shows some crime statistics also, and also Florida Department of Education http://www.fldoe.org/
If you are just in the beginning research stage, you can check out homes in and around Lake Nona, Waterford Lakes, Stoneybrook East and West, Windermere, and maybe Winter Garden. Lake Mary is also a really great area, but getting a little far to be in that 30-40 minute drive from Disney and Universal. I think Windermere and Stoneybrook West may be your best bets though.
I am a transfer from Wisconsin myself! The answer to your question is qiute simple, there are many "Nice Neighborhoods" that would be in this price range and drive time from the Theme Parks. As you are aware, we are in a "Buyers Market" at the present time and many homes are priced well below what they were 12-24 months ago.
Please visit my website at BobsOrlandoHomes.com and use the search tool to view homes in the following zip codes: 32819, 32835, 32836, 32828, 32837, 34747. If you find properties that are of interest to you, let me know and I can get you additional information regarding the area.
Lake Mary is just a tad bit further, and itâ€™s voted the 4th best city in the U.S. by Money Magazine. For $275,000 you can pop in to the Crossings area, the schools are some of the BEST in the Orlando area bar none! For high you have Lake Mary High, middle, Greenwood Middle and elementary is Lake Mary Elementary but that just the half of it; how about right next to the high and middle you have Lake Mary's library. There are bike/walking paths and don't forget the baseball/soccer/skate board and mini water park for the younger kids.
Lake Mary Blvd and Rinehart Road offer shopping and restaurants while industry & business follow International Blvd ( AAA headquarters area ) and Sanford Airport area, ( the fastest growing airport in Orlando ).
There are other great areas like Longwood, Maitland etc... But if it's about schools, location and friendship Lake Mary is known as the move of choice.
Send me your email and I will forward links to sites in Lake Mary and set you up on auto sending Lake Mary homes to your email for viewing; itâ€™s never too early as it helps you get a feel for the area, the homes styles and features as well as prices.
Thanks and have a great week,
Two4One of Orlando
