“One of These Things is Not Like the Other…” (Part III)
As the song goes, “One of these things doesn’t belong.”
One of the houses above is different from the others.
If you guessed the brick house wth the metal casement windows, you’re right!
In 2003, Hopewell was promoting a brochure (showcasing a driving tour of alleged kit homes in Crescent Hills neighborhood) that identified this brick house as a Sears Dover.
Whoopsie! That’s not a Sears Dover!
The other three houses (that look just alike) are the Sears Dover.
More recently, Hopewell has modified this statement and now claims that this brick house is a Sears Maplewood.
Let’s see how that works.
Do these houses look anything alike to you?
Well, they both have windows! And a roof! And a door!
But that’s about it.
Thanks to Rebecca Hunter for the use of her photograph above (the blue Maplewood). You can visit Rebecca’s website here.
I’ve written a great deal about Hopewell.
