128 PLOTS SOLD
Rapid Progress Is Reported In
Development of 425-Acre
Rapid progress in the development
of the Cheverly properties is reported
by Robert Marshall, president of the
Washington Suburban Realty Com
pany. The property was purchased by
the present owners in 1919 and devel
opment work started in January. 1920.
The property contains 425 acres.
and has been subdivided into 2,000
building lots, each with a frontage of
fifty feet and a depth of 150 feet.
One hundred and twenty-five con
tracts, calling for from one to ten lots
each, have been signed to date, the
total sales aggregating $90,000. More
than 60 per cent of these purchasers
are planning to build homes on their
property at an early date. Ten houses
have been constructed, and work will
be started on three additional houses
Mr. Marshall says that a building
operation on a large scale will be
started at Cheverly this spring.
Houses ranging in value prom $5,000
to $15,000 and containing from five to
eight rooms, with one or two baths,
will be erected in groups of five at a
time, on plots of ground of from two
to five lots.
All improvements being installed
are without assessment to lot pur
chasers. These include one main
thoroughfare known as Le Blonde
Highway. which is 60 feet wide and
6,000 feet long, is paved, parked and
lighted, and cost $65,000, to connect
Kenilworth avenue to the new An
napolis Highway, from Washington
to Annapolis; a new electric plant
with capacity to heat 100 houses. All
streets running through the property
from the Le Blonde Highway are
being graded and macadamized, and
will be 18 feet wide.
The policy of the operators is to
sell at the nominal price of 5 cents
a square foot, one-half of the prop
erty from which is being accumulated
a sum of $300,000. This sum will be
used to install modern improvements,
keeping alternate blocks in reserve
until the entire property is devel- I
oped into residential property. It is
the intention of the management to
add an increased value each year to
all of the building lots in Cheverly
by reason of all improvements being
installed without assessment by the
plan of the operators to finance home
building, without profit, by mortgage
money furnished without brokerage.
This plan will be followed out until
one-half of the property is de-loped,
the operators being satisfied to take
their profit from the remaining 1,000
Cheverly is located five miles from
Washington, is on the main line of
the Pennsylvania Railroad, and seven
local trains are scheduled each way
through the property each day.
