The Winchester Gardens Lifestyle.

In Essex County, NJ: Independent living that helps you flourish.

Winchester Gardens has been steeped in history since the opening of the Ward Homestead in 1927, and continues today as the perfect place to enjoy a fascinating life. A breathtaking two-story Great Hall, the venue for countless cultural activities. A multi-media theater. A heated indoor swimming pool. A fine arts and crafts studio, state-of-the-art fitness center and well-stocked library. When you live at Winchester Gardens, these amenities and more are within your own independent living community in Essex County, NJ, so you can trade in those things you have to do for those things you want to do.

On grounds designed by the famed Olmsted Brothers, you can join friends for a game of shuffleboard or horseshoes, or challenge one another to a croquet match. Need to practice your skills on the links? You’re welcome to spend some time on our putting green.

One of the greatest benefits of independent living at Winchester Gardens is knowing you have access to on-site care, if ever needed, including assisted living and memory care. Other services are available, as well.
