Windermere was the second development west of the Ashley, with construction starting in 1927. The homes have much more variety of styles and floor plans than the later developed Byrnes Downs, but they do tend to have a brick exterior with shutters. Windermere homes mostly sit on rectangular lots and are between 2,500 and 3,000 square feet. Many have added garages in the past few decades, along with many renovations, upgrades, and additions. The area is mostly residential, but in addition to the West Ashley Greenway, there is one green space at the corner of Berkley and Beverly Roads.
