Popular and well established, the Dr. Phillips area attracts professionals and those seeking proximity to the Orlando attractions, world class shopping and dining. Located in unincorporated Orange County, Dr. Phillips, dubbed “DP” by the locals takes it’s name from Dr. Philip Phillips. A visionary, with his first land purchase in the are in 1905, Dr. Phillips eventually bought up thousands of acres of orange groves in this area surrounding the Sand Lake Chain-of-Lakes. Dr. Phillips was well known for his philanthropy and community. His charitable acts live on today through his foundation which was established in 1953.
DP is nestled right between Disney World and Universal but still maintains the quaint family oriented community it is known for today. Dr. Phillips boasts some of the highest rated schools of Orlando within its limits. This community features many gated neighborhoods with exquisite waterfront properties and includes the world class, PGA golf community of Bay Hill. Situated between the Sand Lake and Butler chains-of-lakes, the convenience of the attractions, local waterfront parks and real sense of community offers a lifestyle like nowhere in the world.
