OHU50K NOTES

1930s: Imagine searching through the pages of a Sears House catalog night after night, deliberating over the perfect kit house you wanted to order for your family. The “Collingwood” was ordered in 1934 by one such family, the materials arrived on the lot, and the house was completed by 1936. With a cost between $1,329 and $1,960 before labor, how could they go wrong?

REALTOR COMMENTS

THE COLLINGWOOD is a SEARS house  (series 3280) and placed on this lot in 1936! This is the Most Original Sears home that still stands in Illinois today. There are several Sears homes in the Macoupin/Montgomery county area but most have been modernized. This home has all its original paperwork and floorplan available. It is a 5 room home with 2 Bedrooms and 1 Full bath and a full unfinished basement…. Features also include an oversized Living room, Formal Dining room, Kitchen with Breakfast Alcove and Beautiful Original doors with original hardware… The Telephone nook in the hall way will take you a step back in time…….This home is screaming for someone to restore it to its original grandeur! OWN a real piece of History! Situated on 2 lots with a roof that was installed in 2015.
