Did you know that during the period of 1895-1940, you could order your new home from Sears & Roebuck and it came to you as a kit to be put together? There were about 450 different choices This is a rare opportunity to actually see the interior of one of these homes, sitting among a neighborhood of Sears homes in Hopewell, VA! This one is the model used by developer M. T. Broyhill in his Crescent Hills neighborhood. You will see prominent architectural features, such as columned or sleeping porches, back “tradesmen” entries, projecting gabled entries, and interior features, including the original working gas Caloric stove, glass doorknobs, custom nooks, and more. The owner will be present along with her contractor who has worked on the house. You will not believe that the house kit cost $2,899!
