An Attractive' New Subdivision Placed
on the Market.
A new subdivision, to be known as South
Takoma, was placed on tho market yesterday,
and several parties have already engaged lots.
Tho property is that known as tho Hagan
farm, and consists of forty-six acres. It is lo
cated five miles north of tho city, between the
Blair and Sligo Mills road, which runs re
spectively on tho east and west side of It.
The Metropolitan Branch runs through the
tract, and Lamond and Stotts' Station are but
a few minutes' walk. Takoma is about five
minutes' walU, aud BrJghtwood but ten. This
tract of forty-six acres has been subdivided
into about one hundred farm lots of one-half
to one acre each in area. A road has been
laid out through the centre connecting the
Blair and Sligo Mills roadB, and upon this the
lots will face. A spring of delicious water la
sltuatod on the land, and by means of a ram
the owners will supply water to all the houses
In the subdivision. The purchasers of the
tract are Wyckoff & Cahill, Mr. John Ridout,
BIrnoy & BIrney, C. R. Newman, and tho
Alexandria Rca Estate and Investment Com
pany. Capt. James S. Wyckoff, of Wyckoff
& Cahill, who represents tho owners, speaks
anost frankly of the safety of this property as
-an investment. "The ideat" he said, "is to
place the price of lots at; qpch a figure that the
sales will be quickly made. The lots will sell
for from three and one-half to six cents per
square foot, about one-third the price of land
?at Takoma, where three years ago property
cold for the same price we now offer these
lots. We realiso that parties who desire to
purchase property In the country wish to do
.-fio at reasonable prices. It is not likely that
land as favorably situated as Takoma which
16 nearer the city and, more easy of access,
will improve na this ha6 done."
JBSi Communications of any kind, regarding
Heal Estate, Building, and Architecture, are
solicited, and will be cheerfxdly received. They
must he sent in not later than Thursday after
noon of each week, and addressed to Real
Estate Editor, Sunday Herald.
