From 1908–1940, Sears sold about 70,000 – 75,000 Private Brand homes through their mail order Modern Homes program. Over that time the retailer designed 447 different housing styles, from the elaborate multi-story Ivanhoe, to the simpler Goldenrod, which served as a quaint, three-room and no-bath cottage for summer vacationers.
A rosebush-lined brick walk through the yard leads to the front porch, which opens to a updated but reverential living room with a fireplace. The kitchen features a vintage stove and custom cabinets. French doors at the back of the home open to a garden.
The 2,330 square feet home includes a dining room, a central hall, a den, three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
