Buying a house out of the catalog now that’s awesome.

krazy45cat says:

I think its on on atleast to lots .It has a huge yard and a seperate garage out back

Satch Boogifan says:

Very cool

Sounds like an awesome home
Historic – big 3000sq ft - close to the beach

Oh and the yard looks tiny, less yard work

I live in one of the Sears “cottages”. My house was built in 1935 and there are 4-5 more about 1/4 mile away. This house has a floor furnace, and is only 650 sq. ft. Originally sold as Summer homes, all have been Winterized for year round use…(in NY)

Gotcha

krazy45cat says:

I’m sure , the roof line looks as though it would be an all season style roof for snow ect ,Gerry

mbyr31 says:

I bet that is a lot more sturdy than todays homes!

krazy45cat says:

Looked like it had a garage to the left and one way back on the right side ,Big property for that area at least 2 lots if not more

krazy45cat says:

Thats what the news paper said , It was really deep and two stories , a cool find for me 🙂

krazy45cat says:

Plus two fireplaces , I’ll bet the stairways are steep and narrow ,Gerry

krazy45cat says:

Thats pretty cool my Folks where fond of sears as well , Gerry

krazy45cat says:

Thanks for watching , really cool old house from 1925

krazy45cat says:

I remember 🙂 Thought of you when I saw it in the paper .Got a great ghost sign today in down town Tampa 

krazy45cat says:

Thanks it was worth finding ,Gerry

krazy45cat says:

This one looks like it has been maintained very well

krazy45cat says:

Saw a clip in the paper and I wanted to go find it ,Gerry

krazy45cat says:

Nice house and nice little yard.

deepfriedking says:

I’ve heard of those homes, I do believe you can still buy kit homes just not from Sears, 3000sqft seems a bit large for that home from looking at it on video.

ArizonaAdventuress says:

nice find and 3,000 sqft is HUGE for that day I would have to imagine especially considering it’s a kit home! very neat

Love the house. My Mom (now deceased) retired from Sears Roebuck. When I was growing up EVERYTHING we had came from sears. Clothes, stoves, washers/dryers, Tv/radio and all was insured by, you guessed it……..Allstate.

caddilacjim says:
