Dr. Phillips is the Perfect Neighborhood

A visit to the Dr. Phillips neighborhood offers a true snapshot of Orlando’s diverse array of personalities, shopping, and eating.

This idyllic oasis of gated communities is the home of beautiful condominiums, townhomes, villas and estates. Dr. Phillips is a picture-perfect vision of what a neighborhood should always be like: relaxing, welcoming, and filled with world-class dining and recreation. It’s an excellent choice if you treasure the opportunity to live by rolling, emerald golf greens or on the lovely Butler Chain of Lakes.

Why is It Named "Dr. Phillips"? 

This unique area was named after Florida citrus magnate, Dr. Philip Phillips, who was responsible for several key innovations in the packaging and processing of oranges and orange juice. Dr. Phillips owned several thousands of acres of groves which stretched across nine counties, encompassing all of what is now Bay Hill, Orange Tree, Sand Lake Hills and Turkey Lake Park.

Today, the area known as Dr. Phillips is significantly smaller, encompassing a total area of 12.6km, all to be enjoyed in scenic tropical surroundings.
