Go Inside the Most Extraordinary Homes of Florida’s New Urbanist Haven
A new book opens the doors of Windsor’s private residences for the first time, including inspiring spaces conceived by Steven Gambrel, Alessandra Branca, and Tom Scheerer
Few residential communities can match the winning combination of beauty, luxury, and sophistication found at the gated Florida enclave of Windsor, set on a verdant oceanfront barrier island in Vero Beach. Founded in 1989 by Canadian snowbirds, the neighborhood was envisioned to embody New Urbanist principles, which emphasize walkability and architectural harmony, in this case a relaxed yet chic interpretation of classic Anglo-Caribbean design. While some of Windsor’s communal structures have been well publicized—such as Léon Krier’s gabled Town Hall—the new book Beachside (Vendome Press) opens the doors of its private residences for the first time, including inspiring spaces conceived by Steven Gambrel, Alessandra Branca, Tom Scheerer, and other top designers. “To enter any home at Windsor,” writes author Hadley Keller, “is to step into something of a secret garden.”
