From 1908–1940, Sears, Roebuck and Co. sold approximately 70,000-75,000 homes through its mail-order Modern Homes program.
Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) September 02, 2016
RE/MAX Realtor Jeremy Wynia recently listed a unique property that is one of the earliest Sears homes. The house, located at 710 W. Pikes Peak Avenue in Colorado Springs, was built in 1908 and belonged to John Clear, a locomotive engineer.
“This renowned, restored home is not only one of the earliest Sears homes, but was featured in the movie ‘The Incident,’” said Wynia. “From 1908–1940, Sears, Roebuck and Co. sold approximately 70,000-75,000 homes through its mail-order Modern Homes program, and this jewel replete with exquisite craftsmanship is one of them.”
The two-story, 2,419-square-foot Victorian charmer has four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Its private master suite includes an updated master bath, steam shower sauna and walkout deck. The home is nestled on a wooded Westside block of historic properties, and features wrought iron fencing, a large wraparound porch, spacious gardens, a koi pond, large bay windows in the family and dining rooms and laundry on the upper level conveniently close to the bedrooms. The historic house is also loaded with quaint Victorian touches, from the ornate woodwork in the entry and original hardwood floors to the original kitchen stove converted for modern use.
“Stepping into this house is like stepping back in time,” said Wynia. “Additionally, guests or tenants will be able to stay in the new apartment above the large three-car garage.”
