R. C. Hillen says: "So rapidly has Oakland built up that there Is al oin rorces most no land available where one can build fifty or more houses. We consider ourselves fortunate indeed Morris N. Schneider (above).

LINER JOINS sen purchased a ten-acre estate, the home pace of the late Captain Charles Nelson, on Seminary avenue, and will bepln at once erecting the first unit Of homes, which will be ready for occupancy In January. The property, to be known as Normandy Garden, will, form the setting for a hundred English, French and Norman houses to be built during the spring of 1926. An unusual interest centers In Hillen's building program for the coming year because of the market success of the Court of All Nations, sponsored by him In 1925. While the Court of All Natrons contained houses adapted feorn the architecture of most of the European countries, Hillen states that the popularity of English and French homes of five and six rooms each, has led him to concentrate on those architectural types In his newest residential property. In fact, the choice of the name Normandy Garden Is due to the intention to combine the English and French styles as they have blended in northern France and southern England since the time William the Conqueror sailed from Normandy.

According to Hillen, the beautiful grounds of the old Nelson estate will be kept intact, and will form a perfect background for the gabled houses to be erected in Normandy Garden. In the acres devoted to lawn, shrubs and trees, are Italian cypress, palm, yew, pine, walnut and many other trees. The Nelson residence, one of the most picturesque of the old home places left in Oakland, will be removed, to make way for the smaller homes of the present day vogue. Originally built ny Tom Hill, noted painter of Yosemlte landscapes, the house has a history its own that lends atmosphere to the entue neighborhood.
