Three weeks ago, Murray J. Sloane, realtor and Almor Homes, Inc., developer, opened his four new model homes at the Hearth Stones in Norwood with all the important features that experienced home builders had incorporated in them.

For the “second-time” buyer, particular attention was given to the four-bedroom models, each bedroom being designed to liberally accommodate twin-size beds along with the clothing and storage space necessary for spacious living.

Two and one-half baths were included in the four-bedroom model; a very large family room and a two-car garage. Even here, an area was left incomplete to make this model a nine-room home if needed.

The furnished model home is open daily from 10 am. to dusk.

Directions: Rte. 1 to Norwood ramp. Bear right to Norwood Center. Turn left at Washington St. (Rte. 1A), follow 1A to Winter St. traffic light. Right on Winter St. tc Nichols St. (2d on left), follow arrows about one mile to the Hearth Stones.
