SIXTEEN RESIDENCES
FOR NEW SUBDIVISION
Building Activity Planned for Tract Near Soldiers'
Home.
Haiti just closed contracts for the erection of sixteen duellings
of new design and embodying many of the mot advanced ideas of
"home-planning" experts, the firm of Zepp Bros , real estate dealers
are preparing to turn their subdivision north of the reservoir and ad
joining the Soldier' Home into a scene of great building activity.
"WITH A LMii: FIIO-ST."
Already the new subdivision has gained
te di-tinrtion. unique in Washington, ot
containing "houses with a lake front."
The houses which hac recently been
roTipleted, however, command that dis
tinction, as they front on and overlook
the Urge reservoir.
A little more than a cir ago, the sub
dhi ion vv,is a farming tract of about
th'te acres, comprising the old Adams
estate, bounded by Columbia road, Hobert
street. Park place, and Warder street.
After the estato had lain untouched by
progressiv ism for fifty cars, the present
ow-iurs, appreciating its possibilities,
bought it in at auction and immediately
began the work of development. In the
last year they have run streets through
the tract and have built a row of at
tractive residences overlooking the reser
voir Most of these houses have been
sold already, and the erection of the six
teen new structures is in antlcipaUon
of a heavy spring demand
Innotatlona Are Planned.
The houses will Include many new de
partures from the established styles In
bmall house building, and will embody
advanced Ideas in house planning. Among
the special features will be found large
living rooms with direct entrance and
finished with weathered oak ceilings
They will be constructed for gas and
electric advantages, and will have auto
matic water heaters
Llko the living rooms, the dining rooms
will bo fitted with beam ceilings. Attics
will cover the structures
The new houses will be on the market
within the next three months, and will
be for sale at reasonable prices. Later
the firm will build on the remaining lots
of the subdivision, which, in the ena.
will muster fifty residences.
