Planned in 1926 to resemble an English village, Windsor Farms retains much of its original character. The grassy common areas and the canopy of old trees reinforce the feeling of being in the countryside, yet Windsor Farms is an in-town neighborhood between Cary Street Road and the Kanawha Canal. The homes and gardens on this tour vary in age and style - from a 1745 Virginia plantation house moved to Windsor Farms in the 1920s, to a shingle and stone house built in recent years. A William Lawrence Bottomley-designed house offers sweeping views from gardens high above the James River.

Tour ticket includes access to the extensive grounds and gardens of Tuckahoe Plantation, Thomas Jefferson’s boyhood home, a scenic 15 minute car ride west on River Road.  Tours of the interior are an additional fee.
