STARTS FINE HOME
R. A. Harris to Erect Swiss
Chalet Type Structure, in
Heart ot City
Operations will begin this week
on the construction of a Swiss
chalet type of home -on what is
known as the Island property, in
the heart of the city, by R. 'A.
Harris, local realtor. The island Is
located in Mill creek, between
North Capitol and North' Summer,
and is regarded by many as being
one of the finest home-sites in
Salem. Since acquiring the prop
erty Mr. Harris hag rejected many
flattering offers but held to his
title-for the purpose of building
his own home. I I
The island grounds comprise
nine-tenths of an acre, with the
level portion comprising three full
lots. The chalet will be; on the
one-story plan and will cover 51
by 30 feet of ground. It; will be
of the stone-stucco finish with
a red tile roof. Mr. Harris expects
to, spend between $6,000 and
$8.00.0 on, the house, exclusive of
landscaping. The chalet will face
North Capitol on the east, and
will have seven large rooms, with
an exceptlonaly large fireplace, j
'' No effort will be made;; to level
the island and Mr. Harris expects
to retain as much of the: natural
effect as possible. One branch of
Mill creek, is practically dry dur
ing the summer months; and! he
contemplates lowering this a trifle
in order to surround the place with
water during the entire year.
Mr. Harris is now establishing
separate office rooms in the Ore
gon building, occupying room No
317. Formerly he and Rich L. Rel-
mann, another realtor, shared; the
same suite at No. 308 Oregon
building.. 1 i
