This installment of our ‘Neighborhood Spotlight Series’ shines a light on the wonderful and eclectic Orwin Manor. Established in 1924 by Walter Rose, Orwin Manor is one of the many housing developments that was birthed during the Florida Land Boom. The first neat fact about Orwin Manor? The name ‘Orwin’ is a mash of both Orlando and Winter Park, due to Orwin Manors awesome location – half in the city or Winter Park and half in the city of Orlando!
Known for it’s diverse mix of architectural homes, which varies from the original 1920’s bungalows to grand old world estates, this pre-war community is a highly sought after area to find a home in Orlando. With the price of homes varying from $150,000 up to $2,000,000 currently, there is a wide variety of options to choose from regardless of budget.
As well as a wonderfully diverse range of properties and mature tree lined streets, there is also a bustling community of Orwin Manor homeowners. The voluntary homeowners’ association is very well known and active in political decisions that affect the area. With a strong community ethos the HOA strive to bring the residents together frequently by scheduling fun activities throughout the year. They have also actively fought to preserve historic buildings in their community and in turn the unique aesthetic that Orwin Manor is famed for.
Due to the combination of convenient location, historic homes and strong sense of community, Orwin Manor continues to be one of the most popular neighborhoods of Orlando.
