IRVINGTON HILLS

Irvington Hills; Photo from The Delaware County Advocate, July 1942

North of East Twenty-Second Street in Chester, overlooking Ridley Creek, is a broad plateau. A year ago it was known perhaps only to those whose properties encircled it. But the dearth of houses hereabouts led to its being discovered and developed into one of the most attractive semi-suburban group of homes in the Chester area.

The Home City Construction Company, sponsored by the local firm Nolan Brothers, has built there a series of high grade, single and semi-detached homes fully in keeping with surrounding properties. The tract, known as Irvington Hills, covers 21 acres and is within city limits. Twenty-third Street has been cut through to serve these new, houses, built to sell from $15,000 to $18,000. Nearly all found ready sale even before completion, and many are now occupied. 

The builders have plans for a further development nearby, soon to be announced.
