Winchester Villages is a gated community in the northeastern segment of the city of Yonkers in Westchester County, New York. It was built by the Ginsburg Development Company and completed in 1997.[1] It consists of 188 semi-attached homes. The homes originally sold for under $300,000 making them one of the most affordable options in Westchester County. [2]

The complex includes a playground, tennis courts, a swimming pool, and a clubhouse with a small gym and party facilities. The development claims to be close to shopping,transportation and entertainment but is decidedly not pedestrian or bicycle friendly as there is only one exit leading on to a busy street with no sidewalk that parallels the East Grassy Sprain Road along the northbound lanes of the Sprain Brook Parkway. The closest bus stop is nearly two miles away.
