Windsor Green… a townhome community with a unique sense of neighborhood

New Brighton’s Windsor Green, the first owner-occupied town home complex in Minnesota, was carefully designed to be an enticing reason to transition from a house. It was well planned when it was built and continues to be effectively self-managed and maintained, with an onsite manager hired by the association board. No rentals are allowed, resulting in residents who take pride in their homes.

Its thoughtful plan with spacious units of six different designs with attached double garages, 34 acres of beautiful, park-like grounds with miles of paths, 2 swimming pools, tennis courts and playgrounds give the feeling of owning your home in a resort setting where everything outside is taken care of for you.

All this, and Silverwood Regional Park and Silver Lake, part of the Three Rivers Park District, is right across Silver Lake Road.

But the biggest thing that sets Windsor Green apart is its wonderful sense of community… so much so, that families just keep coming back to Windsor Green generation after generation.

What residents say they enjoy about living in Windsor Green…

  • The friendliness of the Windsor Green (WG) residents… there is a unique sense of neighborhood where people look out for one another, but they are not ever intrusive

  • Silver Lake Village with shopping, dining and services is just down the street only about half a mile away
