REAL ESTATE. Subdivision of Estate Property in the Mission. O'Farreil and Lang Announce the Sale at Auc . tion of the Varney Estate Property-Latest -Reported Sales— Contracts. It is seldom that the realty of an estate Is cut up for sale purposes, but in the case of the Thomas Varney estate property, sit uated on what is believed to be the most desirablo business stand in the Mission, an exception has been made by order of the Superior Court. The court was no doubt actuated by the great value of this prop erty, which, if sold en bloc, as is usually the rule in such cases, would not realize its real value to the estate. The property has, therefore, been sub divided into twenty-seven business lots fronting on Valencia, Sixteenth and Fif teenth streets and Julian avenue, which will be more clearly understood by refer ence to the plan submitted in another column. It is admitted by disinterested parties, whose knowledge ot business stands in the Mission would not be doubted, that this is ...
