Formerly known as North Beach, Windsor, Florida, is an oceanfront gated community found on North Hutchinson Island between the Indian River and the Atlantic Ocean. It is a dream locale for active types and lovers of the great outdoors: There is a links-style 18-hole golf course by Robert Trent Jones Jr, an Equestrian Centre with a polo field, a Tennis Centre by Stan Smith, an impressive Fitness & Wellness Centre, plus miles of tree-lined trails for horseback riding, biking, walking and running.
Also accommodating the more niche sports, there is a pickleball league with a neighboring community and a croquet greensward where ‘Wine & Wickets’ events are hosted. This spectacular five-bedroom property has won an award from the American Institute of Architects for its flawless, luxe-meets-sustainability design.
Light floods the interior at every turn, and the master suite has panoramic views over the lake and golf course. Indoor/outdoor living is naturally a theme here; there’s an outdoor porch with a fireplace, covered dining and living pavilion, heated saltwater pool and a deep wraparound terrace that connects all five bedrooms. A separate two-story structure has golf cart parking and a home office for when duty calls.
