The Most Beautiful Residence Park in California

South Palo Alto

Large Villa Lots Jeweled with Symmetrical Live Oaks

In the establishment and growth of all residence towns there develops an extension of territory based on the advantages possessed, natural and acquired, of adjacent surroundings. In the case of the young and vigorously growing town of Palo Alto, with its field of extension stopped at its northern, eastern and western boundaries, South Palo Alto has naturally been opened up.

This is immediately adjoining the corporate limits of the town on the south and during the past sixty days one hundred and fifty lots have been sold in South Palo Alto to suburban home-seekers and investors, and building is already in progress. The many sales in this short time is explained by the fact that the owner has, up to this time, withheld the tract from the market. The town has grown right up to this property and is improved with the highest class of Palo Alto's residences. Now that residence and villa sites can be secured here, there is no doubt that within a short time this tract will be Palo Alto's choicest residence sect on. Everything possible is done to make this so, and with the safeguards thrown around it its success is assured.

Terms: To insure a uniformly high standard of development this property is sold subject to the following restrictions. That residences when built shall cost not less than $2,000. That intoxicants shall not be sold on any of the property; that no wood yards, shops, stores or manufacturing establishments shall be allowed. The value of these restrictions will be apparent. All lots are 50x150 or 50x200 feet, and nearly every lot has one or more choice live oaks, giving shade and helping to beautify the home. In fact, the whole tract is one grove of symmetrical live oaks peculiar to this favored spot. Here also will be located the new HOTEL LELAND. The buildings (copied after the old Missions) and grounds will take up one of the choicest blocks. stock company is being formed for this purpose.
