c.1930 Sears Kit Home For Sale in Greenville, IL Under $93K


Many of us covet a Sears Kit home. Well, the Colchester Model is on the market in Greenvile, Illinois. As the brochure states for the original facade, “The motif or main detail of the front of this building is the happy combination of brick, stone and stucco.” The homeowners in this case replaced the stucco for more brick in the gable, but the home still has its stucco interior walls. What a beauty!

Built in the 1930s, this Sears Home (Colchester Model) is spacious, welcoming, and so very charming! This 4 bed, 3 bath property has large rooms, hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, and even a vintage elevator! Stucco walls, arched doorways, and plenty of the original character make this cozy home unique. Bonus room upstairs, sunroom on the main floor, and a potential 24×12 man cave/family room in the basement offer extra living space on each level. Basement also has a large laundry/storage area and a 1 car garage. Deck overlooking the HUGE, fenced back yard, all in a quiet, well-established neighborhood. Home does need some cosmetic TLC, but is priced to sell with motivated sellers. This is a truly special property just waiting for a new owner…maybe it could be you! (Please note that the elevator and fireplace are currently non-functional)

    In this case, having the present occupants’ furnishings–and cat!–included in the photos adds to the appeal. Lovely!
