Living near WDW?

Clermont really is full of really really big, scenic hills and lakes. It is a very different landscape than the rest of central Florida. You can see a really long ways in all directions from the tops of the hills. We can see downtown Orlando, Icon Park, and even Disney World (the Contemporary, Spaceship Earth, etc.) from way out here.

I have tried capturing it in photos, but my phone's camera makes it look flatter than it is. The only place I have ever lived that has a landscape similar to this is San Diego county.

May I suggest you rent and live there for a few months, get to know the various areas and feel for what it's like before buying a new home and relocating?

I also thought I wanted to retire to the WDW area. Lived there on and off for over a year as I helped my mom out and have decided absolutely not. It just wasn't me and I wanted to keep the Disney resort as a vacation destination in which I could fully relax. Just don't get that feeling living there.

I know those intersections and roadways too well. Clermont is growing at an insane pace, that's not a particularly good thing.

We have those here in Tally...the city is known for its 7 hills. But those aren't mountains.

The Laguna mountains run along the eastern side of San Diego.
