LOOK toward the center of the city from any section of "High View" and the entire center of
the city lays before your eyes far below you 171 feet below you. The Capitol dome
. on one end and the Washington Monument at the other, stand like sentinels. But the view
here is so superb that it takes you far beyond these two land marks in both directions in fact, you
can see all the way over into Virginia.
From this elevation you can very readily realize how convenient "High View" is to the
city's business center. Why, it is not as far as fashionable Dupont Circle, and you know the valu
ation of a home depends to a great extent on the location. It is for this reason that we would
emphasize the location of the "High View" homes.
The builders have erected great home values on this elevation, properly named "High View."
The public realizes this fact for they have continued to buy these homes since they were first an
nounced for sale, nearly a year ago, faster than the builders can construct them, maintaining the
same high standard of excellence that is required by SHANNON & LUCHS of all homes they
(Including all interest)
Some idea of the kind of home you can secure here at "High View" can be obtained by the
above picture, but a picture cannot bring out its true beauty cannot disclose the beautiful qual
ity of the brickwork, the artistic lines of the ornamental cornice, nor the uniqueness of the dormer
windows that project from the French roof, giving a three-story effect to the home, and it but
faintly portrays the hospitable effect the individual Colonial porches give to each home. Suffice to
say that in point of value, these homes are in the five thousand dollar class. This fact is emphasized
when you step inside, for the interior arrangement, equipment, etc., is all that could be desired
in a home of much higher price.
There are two or three more of these homes about completed. They had better be seen at
once if you would move into a "High View" home the moment you decide to buy lone.
TO INSPECT Take any G street car marked "Brookland" or "North Capitol and W streets," get off at Rhode Island
avenue and walk one square east.
The owners have under course or construction more of these homes. It
Tlll be several months before they arn completed.
If you haven't the necessary $209 first payment to put Into one of tho
homes now ready for Immediate occupancy, you can have us reserve one of
the next lot for you by arranging to make us small monthly payments. In
this way, by the time the homea are ready for occupancy, you will have
saved enough to make the first payment. After that all you need pay Is
I2C.92 per month, which applies directly on the home, Including alt Interest.
