The Chelsea

The Sears Chelsea was not one of their most popular models, and it’s a little different from the other Sears foursquares. The dormer windows in the Sears Chelsea were boxier and bolder than other Sears Homes such as the Fullerton, the Gladstone, Woodland and more.

The catalog page says “In Demand For Years.” I’m not so sure about that…

The characteristic feature of the Chelsea is that staircase window, hanging off the side of the house. Very distinctive!

    I found a “Chelsea” in Big Rapids, Michigan on Rust Avenue!
