Winter Hill, Somerville.

On TUESDAY, June 6, 1876,

The two beautiful suburban Residences, known as the OAKMAN and ELDRIDGE ESTATES, situated on Broadway, Somerville, at the top of Winter Hill, will be sold by auction at the date above stated. Each contains 11 rooms, with ceilings handsomely frescoed. The halls are finished in hard wood. Also, bath and wash rooms, excellent drainage, fine cellars, and, beside the Mystic, an excellent well of pure water; and they are in every respect substantial and superior structures.

The view from the houses and grounds is unsurpassed, and embraces Boston, the inner and outer harbor, and the entire circle of towns from Nahant to Brookline, within a radius of ten miles, as also the entire valley of the Mystic.

The grounds are laid out with admirable taste, with driveways, solid granite walled lawn front and ornamental trees and flowers. The land to be sold with each estate, comprises 12,000 feet, and each lot is 120 feet deep; but it will be optional with purchases to take more land in the rear, if desirable, at a figure per foot to be named by the auctioneer.

The horse cars of the Winter Hill line pass the premises every few minutes, and the Station of the Boston and Lowell Railroad is but five minutes' walk distant.

The premises will be open for inspection daily until the sale. For further particulars addresses or call on the auctioneer.

Terms - $1000 down on each house at sale. Two thirds of the purchase money can remain on mortgage for five years, if the purchaser desires.
