The other day I was zooming down GlendaleMilford Rd. when I spotted a cluster of porch pillars out of the corner of my eye. A Sears house!
Turns out it’s a beautiful SEARS Roebuck Elsmore model complete with distinctive 5 piece eave brackets, original porch rail and Sears front door. SWEET! Definitely no mistaking this one. It’s the real deal. Another one recently came available for sale in Wyoming and sold very quickly. In 3 days to be exact and for $2000 more than asking price.
The Elsmore was billed by Sears as ” a popular, inexpensive and graceful bungalow, well lighted and ventilated.” Click here to see the original catalog image of this home.
Unfortunately the owner wasn’t home when I stopped to take pictures. Maybe next time. I’d love to see the inside
