Vero Beach, Florida

The Windsor private community spans 416 acres of an island situated between the Indian River and the Atlantic Ocean. Besides its links-style golf course, equestrian center and riding trails, and full complement of other sporting options, the residential enclave is notable for the design talents that helped create it. Andrés Duany and Elizabeth Plater-Zyberk employed their "new urbanism" philosophy to create a walkable, close-knit village atmosphere, and Yabu Pushelberg designed the clubhouse interiors. The architect Hugh Newell Jacobsen is responsible for this eight-bedroom home at Windsor, and he likened the structure to a fortress, albeit an airy one that is full of light. It features living spaces spread out over three pavilions and a great room in the center that has 38-foot ceilings; the bedrooms are divided between the east and west wings. Outdoors, views beyond the terraces and pool encompass a lake, the golf course, and the village.
