Situated along the shores of three sparkling lakes, Windsong is a community within one of Florida's oldest cities. Located in the center of old Winter Park and mirroring the old-world charm of the area, Windsong�s neighborhoods are as lovely as the peacock-graced lawns of the original estate. The Windsong estate came into being in 1904 when Chicago Industrialist Charles Hosmer Morse purchased 200 acres around lakes Virginia, Berry, and Mizell. Morse's daughter, Elizabeth Morse Genius, and her husband built a Mediterranean-style villa that epitomized the charming, old-world style of Winter Park. It was here on a particular summer evening that one of the ladies hung a bell from the branch of a tree. The cool lake breezes caused the bell to sound sweetly. Soon, bells and wind chimes hung throughout the estate. Their clear, gentle ringing inspired the name Windsong.
Known as the 'City of Gracious Living,' Winter Park, Florida, is one of America's most appealing cities. Its scenic beauty, tranquil environment, and abundance of art and culture have made it a showplace residential area since the late 1800's. Brick-lined streets meander through quaint neighborhoods. Mediterranean, Greek, Victorian, Revival, and arts and crafts-period architecture creature an eclectic atmosphere. Picturesque lakes with old Venetian canals surround residential areas. Beautiful parks, old majestic trees, and botanical gardens are abundant. The area is host to frequent arts and music festivals. And, although it feels as if it's worlds away, it's only a few miles from downtown Orlando.
