For the first section of the community, there is an entrance marker at Lux Lane on the western side of the street since one side of the street is within Windermere and the other side is not. The other two entrance markers for section one are at Ralston Drive and Arroyo Drive. These are British Colonials built by Columbia Homes and Zuckerman Katz homes on one quarter to one third acre lots. A custom home builder built a few others as well. In all, 155 homes in Windermere I are within the Heritage Walk Homeowners Association. Just one of the original model homes in Luxmanor is part of the Heritage Walk Homeowners Association.

 Shannon & Luchs Development Co. established the Luxmanor subdivision in 1934 for 190 homes on the Morton J. and Ernestine Luchs estate of 94 acres from the remnants of the Riley Plantation. In the aftermath of the Great Depression,  "subsistence homesteads" of half acre lots were built for the purpose of growing and cultivating flowers and vegetables. By 1946, R.L. Willis built homes in the 6100 block of Roseland Lane, and later Stephalee Lane. Gruver-Cooley Corporation built homes on the southern ends of Stephalee Lane, Rosemont Drive, and Luxmanor Road. The smaller and older homes are being knocked down and rebuilt as they come up for sale.
