Tennis great Ivan Lendl asks $5.95M for Windsor estate

Tennis Hall of Famer Ivan Lendl and his wife, Samantha, have listed their 8,400-square-foot country estate with Windsor Properties for $5.95 million.

The eight-bedroom, eight-bathroom (plus two half baths) British West Indies-style home, which was built in 2002, stretches across two Savannah Place home sites that total 1.1 acres. It comes with a resort-style swimming pool and overlooks a lake behind the green of the first hole on Windsor’s golf course.

Designed by Clemens Bruns Schaub and built by RCL Development, the house includes 8,461 square feet of air-conditioned living space with another 4,250 under roof.

“Residents enjoy unparalleled privacy within spacious ground that unfold through a series of pavilions, gardens and outdoor living areas,” the Windsor Properties listing states, adding that a combination of “curved rafter tails below wide eaves, pivoting screens between living room and dining room, and guest quarters that resemble a row of bungalows” provides the residence with the feel of an “exotic village.”

According to the Multiple Listing Service, the 2019 property tax bill was $46,994, and the monthly maintenance fee is $582.

Lendl, a former No. 1-ranked player who won eight Grand Slam singles titles, also owns a home in Connecticut, but he said he spends 75 percent of the year here.

He said he has no plans to leave Vero Beach – where he has lived since 1996 – or even Windsor. He’s merely looking to downsize to a smaller house, now that his five daughters are grown and no longer live at home.
