$1,100 to $1,500 per Acre on Very Liberal Terms.
The Great Demand for Acreage Property.
By a fortunate deal we have secured that
beautiful property known as “MANOR PARK”
A Part of the Great and Growing Northwest Section.
This property is located in the District just west of the Metropolitan branch of the B & O.R.R, near Lamond’s station and within a few blocks of the Brightwood and Takoma Park electric lines. The largest frontage of the park is on the famous Blair road, one of the finest driving roads in the District, and the other frontage is on Madison street, the beautiful boulevard which is to connect Blair road with Brightwood road. This street will be graded and opened to the public in the very near future, as the ground has been condemned and the title is now in the District of Columbia
All Good Ground
It is all good, desirable ground, high and rolling – not swamps or low spots. The elevation is on of the highest in the District.
The new Union Station when completed will greatly benefit this property, and you are very likely to triple or quadruple your money inside of two years.
