‘A magnificent new concept in luxurious apartment living will be introduced to New England this Saturday with the grand opening of the first model apartment of the unique Windsor Gardens in Norwood. Complete with private club facilities—including an Olympic-size swimming pool, cabanas, tennis and badminton courts, and barbecue pits—Windsor Gardens is the first genuine garden apartment complex ever built in New England.

Construction is already in full swing on the first 132 apartment units, which will be ready for occupancy by December, 1962. When completed, this unique development will have 676 one- and two-bedroom units. To preserve the beauties of the country setting, only 10% of the 43-acre tract will be taken up by the 22 garden apartment buildings and two high-rise buildings.

Early visitors to the model apartment will notice many design features which put the accent on luxury at Windsor Gardens. For example, the floors throughout are of rich-looking parquet oak. All apartments are Individually heated and air-conditioned, and separated by a soundproof blanket in the walls, floors and ceilings. A generous use of wood paneling and a full picture wall of glass add elegance to the living rooms. Each upstairs apartment has a private balcony terrace and raw beamed cathedral ceilings. Telephone outlets and electrical outlets are located in abundance, and each building provides a central TV outlet for the best possible reception.

The Windsor kitchen is all-electric, featuring built-in dishwasher, in the two-bedroom apartment, disposal, refrigerator-freezer and range —all color-coordinated and set.
