    1916 Sears - No. 264B145 (roomy house)

  • Shari Davenport

    1916 Sears - No. 264B145 ~ Sears' Plan No. 264B145 (later named the Arlington) is a large home with grand spaces. Its bat-wing dormer and stone fireplace certainly would have appealed to home buyers who were looking for a distinctive appearance but for whom the Craftsman-style was prerequisite. Room sizes are generous for this type of house and amenities include a maid's room adjacent to the kitchen, easy access from indoors to outside by way of three porches and a separate service entry. Upstairs a walk-in linen closet was conveniently located next to the large bathroom.

Modern Home No. 264B191 1916 SEARS ROEBUCK MODERN HOMES Sears' mastery at anticipating the desires of early 20th century home buyers is easily seen in Modern Home No. 264B191. Like many of the plans, it's small, but has a logical, "modern" flow between spaces. Its solid Craftsman style, attractive facade, and convenient layout would have appealed to many buyers. Even by today's standards, it's a jewel of a house at about 1100 square feet. This plan was available only from 1912 to 1916.

1916 Sears, Roebuck and Company 2 story house for one thousand & ninety two dollars. From 1908 to 1940 Sears, Roebuck and Company sold ready to build house kits with no sawing or nailing. Everything was bolted together. The "home in a box" as it was called, was delivered to the local train depot. By building your own home, this allowed a home buyer to be able to afford a good quality home.

Modern Home No. 264B206 1916 SEARS ROEBUCK MODERN HOMES A favorite subtype among the different Craftman-style bungalows was the Swiss Chalet. Some were very Swiss with exaggerated eaves and woodwork. Others, like Sears Modern Home No. 264B206, were much more modest, with the most pronounced expression being the pierced pattern in the vertical slats of the porch railing. In the 1923 catalog, this plan appears as the Westly and was offered with two different plan options. One of Sears' more popular homes, it appears in catalogs from 1913 to 1929.

Neat site and this floor plan flows well- need to add mudroom, garage and master bath. POCKET DOORS!

The Hillrose 1923 Sears Roebuck Modern Homes...if someone ever discovers time-travel I'm going back to 1923 with $3573 in cash, buying this, coming back to the present and renovating. Then I could sell it for $1.5 million, at least around here. Now THAT is flipping a house!
