A stroll down Windsor Way
Written by: Deborah Rider Allen
In 1926 Windsor Farms was developed as one of Richmond’s first planned neighborhoods. The large Colonial Revival and Cape Cod homes and Georgian Revival mansions on half acre to 23-acre lots were some of the best designed and built homes that money could buy.Two of the homes—one on Banbury Road and one on Windsor Way—were done at almost the same time, with the same architect, the same kitchen designer and were located just blocks apart.
As the Banbury Road makeover was getting underway, Jim Dunkum of Dunkum Inc. was hired to do another makeover just a few blocks away. A young family with two girls had purchased the 3,100-square-foot Georgian Colonial on Windsor Way and wanted to add living space, a two-car garage and redesign some of the interior.
