Windsor is a community that has close ties to its agricultural roots. Rolling hills dotted with live oaks and acres of vineyards surround the town’s core properties. Windsor has done an incredible job of preserving its roots while looking to the future. The downtown area offers a mix of shopping and housing centered on the four-acre “town green”. In an echo of times past, some of the owners of the restaurants, bookstores, and boutiques proprietors live above their stores here as well.
Today, the Town Green plaza serves as a vibrant meeting place and a focal point for local activities, including a farmers' market held Thursdays and Sundays, where you'll find top chefs from Bay Area restaurants sourcing the ingredients for that night's menu. Each June, Windsor hosts the Sonoma County Hot Air Balloon Classic, an event that draws dozens of balloonists and thousands of spectators.
Homes for sale in Windsor will typically have you spending a minimum of $400,000 and upwards of $1 million - though the occasional home in the gated neighborhoods of Oak Hill or Lakewood Hills can readily top that and end up in the $1.5 - 3 million niche. Real estate prices in Windsor currently indicate a median price around $635,000 and most homes were constructed from the 1990’s to present.
