The Homes of
SUNLIGHT and VENTILATION
On Spring Road Cor. 1 4th St. N. W.
HEN buying a home you ought to think of the future as well as the present. You should
do this for two reasonns if you intend to live there always you should look to the
future of the neighborhood. You should also think of the future in case vou mitrht
Property located real estate in Washington will always increase in value, just as the Nation
is bound to increase in prosperity, and a part of Jhis prosperity must necessarily redound to the
benefit of Washington, its Capital City.
There is no street in Washington whose residential real estate development has been so
remarkable as that of 14th Street. The valuation per foot of the ground in this section has
multiplied so rapidly in the last few years as to almost stagger belief.
From Park Road to Spring Road on 14th Street and streets running at right angles and
parallel to 14th Street is the virtual center of this great residential development. Right here, on
Spring Road, just around the corner from 14th Street are the homes of "Sunlight and Ventila
tion" a home value as out-of-the-ordinary as its location.
A feature of these homes that emphasizes the fact that the builders fulfilled their determi
nation to make them ideal in every respect is at once seen in the extra large front lawns.
The beauty of these lawns is emphasized by the fact that they are highly terraced, and the homes
approached by cement steps and walks.
The individual front porches are artistically adorned with second-story balconies. The
arches separating the parlor from the dining room and parlor from the hall are supported by
massive ornamental columns. There is a gas log fireplace surmounted by an ornamental man
tel in the parlor and another in the dining room. An artistic triple window in the dining room
produces a flood of light that makes the illumination of this side of the house as bright as
every other room.
The kitchen is as far superior to the average in this priced home as the other rooms we
have already mentioned and this holds equally true with the second-story bedrooms and bath
rooms, the entire second floor being laid in parquetry as well as the first floor. Go out to the
rear yard, and you will find a double back porch overlooking a good sized, well-sodded yard
surrounded by a green picket fence.
Hot water heat has its advocates. Likewise hot air heat. Realizing the difference of opin
ion of many people on the subject of heating the builders of these homes have installed both sys
tems and you may take your choice.
There Is Not Another Home Value Like This In All Washington.
Price $5,000 and $5,200
TVfmc I $500 Cash

It is the SHANNON & LUCHS way, and hundreds of
homes have been sold and are being sold on this liberal
basis. It enables the remarkable privilege of living in
and enjoying the comforts and luxuries of a home of your
own while paying for it. And these payments have been
reduced to amounts smaller than such a home would rent
for. The fact that you do not pay more for these homes on
the SrfkNNON & LUCHS easy term plan is emphasized
by the further fact that the price is the same whether you
pay cash or not.
Here is the way the SHANNON & LUCHS way you
