Two Houses Completed
FINE DWELLINGS MARK TYPE OF LAURELHURST HOMES
Building In Addition Has Started on All Sides With Fine Grade of Structures Under Way
Two fine homes have already been completed in Laurelhurst, the new home addition on the East Side which has been on the market but a few months.
In this handsome residence addition, homes are now springing up on every side but it is P.S. Easterday, president of the Columbia Bridge Company, and W.N. Everett, a contractor, who have finished the first homes in the great new addition which promises to be one of the most thickly settled of the better class of home additions in Portland.
The Everett home is located on Hazel Fern Place, facing east, and while built as a home for Mr. Everett, is but one of four houses which he is erecting in the new addition. This home was built at a cost of $4500.
These are but two homes now completed in Laurelhurst but within the next few months there will be a large number of costly residences in the addition.
Charles K. Henry is having plans prepared for a $15,000 home on Laurelhurst Avenue and Dr. Homer I. Keeney will start in the immediate future to build a $7000 home on this same avenue.
Among other residences planned to be erected this Summer are those for Francis Dubois Jr., to cost $5000; W.S. Hurst, a $5000 home; A.E. Kern, $5000; Grant Foster, between $4000 and $5000; H.C. Gresel, $5000; Charles V. Cooper, $10,000; C.S. Russell, $7000; and O.W. Taylor, $10,000.
