INCLUDING ALL INTEREST AND PRINCIPAL
Three things should be given first consideration w hen buying a home. One is the high character of the construction of the home, another is the location and neighbor
hood, and the other is the future investment possibilities of the home should you ever desire to sell.
In the first place, these homes are of beautiful pressed brick construction, reinforced with steel beams. The result is homes of beauty and homes of durability.
In the second place, these homes are in the most desirable section of all Washington the section" where most people want to live the section where real estate values
are increasing most rapidly the northwest section of the city. Two other features add to the importance of this location. One is the high elevation (far above the rest of the
city, as Indicated in the photograph appearing below), and the other the extreme nearness of the city's business and shopping section only about 15 minutes' car ride, with
your choice of two double-track car lines, one right at ha nd and the other two squares distant.
In the third place, the fact that this home is so desirable from the standpoint of both construction and location makes it particularly desirable from the standpoint of
an investment and every prospective home purchaser should consider the future valuation of his home, as well as its present valuation.
SIX FINE ROOMS AND BA TH and Equipped With All Modern Conveniences

The photographic reproductions accompanying this announcement give but a hint as to the
interior beauty of these homes. The arrangement is both artistic and practical. The woodwork and
decorations throughout are of superior quality.
A vide arch leads from the hall, with its hardwood staircase to the parlor, which is beautified
with a fine hardwood art mantle. Then through another arch you pass into the well-illuminated
dining room, handsomely decorated and with a broad plate rail surrounding the entire room. You
pass through the double action swinging door into the completely equipped kitchen with its china
cupboard equipped with lower compartments and drawers for pots, pans, and other kitchen utensils.
The modern sink has the latest drain board attachment. A second kitchen door communicates di
rectly with the hall, so that the front door may be reached by the housewife or her maid without
traipsing through the dining room and parlor. When you inspect this home we want you to note
particularly the high order of the unusually attractive lighting fixtures in the hall, parlor, and dining
room. Equally as attractive features in every way will be found on the second floor.
Go into the cellar which runs the entire length of the home and you will find it floored with
enduring cement. Here is the modern heating plant whose main stem pipes are asbestos covered
in order to insure the maximum amount of heat to all parts of the home with minimum coal con
sumption. Another feature of this cellar, which its in every way as modern is the rest of the. home,
is the completely equipped laundry with its double compartment tubs and running hot and cold
water. Then there is a hot-water heater attachment for the supplying of hot water in summer and at
all other times when the heater fire is not in operation.
A rear tradesmen's entrance leads directly into this cellar.
Go upstairs and you will find it equally as attractive in its way. Each of the three bedrooms
leads directly into the hall where there is a large linen closet. Ample cupboard space has been pro
vided for in these rooms. Not only are the rooms communicating, but the main bedroom communi
cates directly with the bathroom, a feature usually found only in homes of the highest prices. Each
bedroom door is transomed and the rear bedroom has a door that leads to an exterior sleeping
orch. The bathroom is complete in its equipment, including such features as a full mirrored door
medicine cabinet. An air chamber above the second story and the roof greatly enhances the natural
ventilating system of the home, making it warmer in winter and cooler in summer than it otherwise
The exterior beauty and utility of the home is enhanced by individual front porches of larger
size than usual. Altogether there are three of these porches. Neat picket fences surround the
rear yards, while the front lawns are terraced.
