Description

An Original Sears +G+Kit+G- House IS Up for Sale. The mail-order, three-bedroom 'The Fullerton' home remains largely unchanged. Once advertised in the Sears catalog as modern home building innovations such as asphalt shingles, plasterboard and precut lumber allowed customers to tackle the ultimate DIY when the 25-ton houses arrived by box train. The buildings quickly became known as kit houses thanks to a 75-page manual that took builders through the piece-by-piece assembly process. What a fabulous home! Proportioned, balanced and gracious, but not ostentatious! Stately charmer with HW floors, ceramic tile and original trim along with a spacious porch on front & deck in back. You will be greeted by a large living room which opens to the dining room. Immediately to the right of the entrance is an open stairway leading to the second floor. You may enter the kitchen from either the dining room or the living room as well as from the outside by a grade entrance that also leads to the basement. Three bedrooms and a bath open off the hall on the second floor. Each room is adorned with a large closet for all your storage needs. Mature trees bless this spacious corner lot on South 2nd Street as well a carport and open deck. Now is your chance to own a piece of history....your very own Sears catalog kit home!
