All Things Vallonia, Part Deux

The Sears Vallonia was easily one of Sears most popular designs.  It had a practical, thoughtful floor plan and it was an attractive design and offered a finished or unfinished second floor. Lots of expandable space for the not-so-expandable budget.

I’ll update this post with more information in the coming days, but for now, here are some photos.

    Hi there. Stumbled on your page of Sears homes while searching this model. I believe my house is a 1925 Vallonia and it’s a bit differently laid out than these plans or types. One and a half stories, full basement runs completely under front porch (which goes across the whole width of the house), and I bought this place in 2003. Lots of original yellow pine woodwork (baseboards, windows, 5-panel doors : ), french doors and a bay window in the dining room). Rumor has it (but I haven’t verified) that it’s a 1925 Sears kit house. I’m in Brooksville, KY (along the OH river and yes, a railroad). Any help you have on this would be great!

    Rose’s Reply: Please send me a photo and I can tell you what it is. Send photos to thorntonrose@hotmail.com.

    I have a mid twenties Vallonia home and I am looking for parts. Does anyone sell electrical fixtures for these homes?

    I’m in the process of researching the Vallonia to build one new.

    Any help on the dimensions (which are kind of hard to read on the catalog pages) and the roof pitches would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Dave have you found your dimensions yet?

    I am in a Vallonia that I am getting ready to sell in order to move back out in the country. I love this house. If I could move it I would. More importantly for you I have two copies, I think, of the original blueprints.

    The blue prints have some GOOD alterations from sears. The second floor is taller than most with an eight foot ceiling and nine foot down stairs. maybe we could make arrangements to get copies for you. heres a link http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/235-Fort-St-Bremen-OH-43107/33799778_zpid/

    Thanks so much for the reply. I had posted comments in a few places and did not get back to this one.

    If there’s any way that I could get a copy of the blueprints from you it would be much appreciated. P

    lease contact me via my email address.

    Mr. Dwayne Hubbard,

    I just bought a Vallonia (circa 1935) in Cleveland OH.

    I would like to buy copies of the blueprints and any other material concerning this type of house, if you would be so kind. Thanks for your time.

    You can reach me at applejak_2000(att)yahoo(dot)com

    Best Regards,
    John

    We have a 1927 Vallonia house on Main Street in Plymouth, Michigan. The floor plan is a bit different with 3 living room windows on the right and the stairway on the left of the front door. There is only 1 bedroom downstairs and 2 upstairs with no bathroom. We used the little dormer room in front as a baby room. There is a walk-in attic off the one bedroom upstairs. Full basement even under the porch. Kitchen very tiny and there is a small entry porch.

    Living room fake fireplace flanked with glass door bookcases with small windows above. And there is a tiny coat closet with a mirror front door under the stairway. I am trying to find the floor plan for a 3-bedroom Vallonia.

    @Dwayne Hubbard
    Hi Dwayne, Would it be possible to get a copy of those blue prints?

    I love the Vallonia Design and would like to build one when I find the right spot. It is a bit like the homes in my aunt’s neighborhood in Nashville.

    Do you know if anyone has assembled a book with blue prints?

    I am not sure if there are any homes that are similar to the Vallonia that I could compare.

    Thank you so much!
