Windsor Home for Sale

The village of Windsor is one of my favorite communities in the Vero Beach area. It is located on the barrier island between the Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean. The village offers a beautiful club facility, golfing, polo, stables, a playground, an art gallery, fitness facilities and even a beautiful church.

Most of the homes were built as winter homes for "snowbirds" from all over the United States, Canada, Europe, and South America. The home that is featured in this post was designed by Hugh Newell Jacobsen and built in 1996. The home is 10,708 square feet and features 5 bedrooms and 6 full baths and 3 powder rooms. It is listed at $7,700,000. It was built to maximize breezes and keep air circulating with its many full size windows.

The front of the home definitely has a beach-y feel to it.

Isn't it neat how the windows open right out to the pool?
Dining room...

While it is not exactly my taste, it does appeal to me because the decorating is very simple and un-fussy. I can see how it would be very relaxing as a vacation home.
I love the blue ceiling in this hallway. It looks like a pool of water overhead. The ceiling in this room is also very beautiful.

This appears to be an outdoor lounge area. Is there glass above the wooden ceiling or is it open?

Looks like the formal living room...

Aahh - so this is the room that opens out into the pool! How cool!

Another long hallway with a beautiful blue ceiling. It looks kind of shiny. Could it be Venetian plaster?

Too bad these were all the photos that were posted on the listing. I would love to see the kitchen, the bedrooms, and the bathrooms!

The purple chairs immediately caught my attention, but my favorite is still the wire sofa. I would love to have those pieces
