Norwood Park-at-Norwood

Attracts Hundreds of People

“The new model home, opened recently at Norwood Park-at-Norwood, is attracting hundreds of people to the area,” Martin Cerel, Natick realtor, reports. “Many of the homes are already occupied and new owners are moving in daily.

“These people are really enthusiastic about their new contemporary Capes, and they are pleased with the idea of living adjacent to beautiful 35-acre Norwood Park with its swimming pool, ballpark, and fully equipped playground for the children.

“The young people, In fact, have already been enjoying the skating in the area that has been flooded over for them directly behind the new homes. Of course, the women are intrigued with the idea of being so close to the shopping area, school, churches, transportation, and the theatre.

“At Norwood Park-at-Norwood,” Mr. Cerel continued, “the potential buyer has his choice of four different architectural styles of the traditional Cape. Each model, designed for contemporary living, incorporates dozens of quality details that few other homes in this price range offer.

“The comfortable living room features a wood-burning tapestry

brick fireplace and picture window. The Yorktown birch cabinet kitchen with dining area was specifically designed by our architects for convenience and efficiency.

“Each of these expandable Capes also has an extra-large utility room with connection for an automatic washer and dryer, a ceramic tile bath with built-in tub and shower, blanket insulation throughout, finished stairway to the expansion area, and automatic thermostatically controlled baseboard heat.

“These are just a few of the many features offered at Norwood Park-at-Norwood—the home itself, the area, and the fact that Boston proper is just 12 short miles away, via fast and frequent express trains or buses.

“In order to reach this new community,” Mr. Cerel concluded, “take Route 1A through Norwood Center to the blinker light at the junction of Route 1A and Washington st., bear left on Washington st., 1 mile past the Norwood Junior High School to Model Home at Norwood Park-at-Norwood.”
