The Addition with Character '
Stand ont today in its completed state as the premier residence
park of Portland. Every municipal improvement requisite for the .
health, comfort and happinet-s of those people v.ho appreciate and
demand the best home nurroundinps, has been made in Laurelhurst
by the City of Pui-tUnd, at a cost cxceclinir 1.500,0"n.
When the expression "completed" is used in describing the state
of Laurelhurst 's improvements it should be taken literally; every
street. 25 miles'in all, ha an asphalt pavement; the entire 52 mile
of cement sidewalk have been laid, perfect pas. sewer and ter
systems have ben put in throughout the property, the addition is
brilliantly lighted with a superb system of cluster lights and the side
walks are lined with carefully selecte.t shade trees, embracinp all of
the best known varieties. Two double track earlines bisect Laurel
hurst, one near the north line and the other near the center.
You must not jrt the idea that the streets of Laurelhurst are torn
op as they were three or four months aro and that piles of sand,
Travel and cement are scattered here and there; such is not the case.
Two years aprv, when laurelhurst came under the control of the
present owners, the promise was made that within two years every
municipal improvement would He made thronphmit the entire addition.
That promie has V-cn faithfully kept to the minutest detail.

Prirrs in Iiinolhurst arc more reasonable than those de
manded in much less desirable locations further from the center
of the citv and -where street improvements are only promised.
Laurelhurst Is No Longer a Speculative Proposition It Is a High
Grade Investment. Sales During the Past Week in Laurelhurst Have
Been Astonishing, and Prove That the People of Portland Appreciate
the Value of a Really High-Grade Finished Residence Addition .

The Addition with Character
Now that it is a perfectly improved residence addition, is one
of the show places of Portland." The natural beauty and attractive
ness of Laurelhurst, enhanced by the costly public improvements, just
completed, and the scores of elegant homes built there during tTie
past year, has made it the highest-grade residence property in Port
land and stamps it as the choicest and most desirable home-building
area in the city.
It would be worth your while to spend an hour or two walking, or
motoring; through Laurelhurst. There is nothing else like it in Port
land. It is distinctly in a class of its own. Laurelhurst can be
reached from the center of the city over hard-surfaced streets, as
the district between the shopping center 'and the addition is prac
tically all paved.
Less than two years ago Laurelhurst was the finest dairy farm
in Oregon. Today it is the only finished residence addition of any
size in Portland and is by far the most beautiful home-building dis
trict on the entire Pacific Coast.
Take an hour off and go to see Laurelhurst. The wonderful work
that has been accomplished there in the past 18 months will be a
revelation to you.
Laurelhurst may be reached by three earlines the Laurelhurst car,
Moutavilla and the Rose City Park car.
