Strathmore + Willard = Strathard?

The Strathmore has always been one of my favorite models of Sears Homes. Then again, Im a real sap for Tudoresque designs, and these Sears Tudors are utterly adorable.

The Strathmore has always been one of my favorite models of Sears Homes. Then again, I'm a real sap for Tudoresque designs, and these Sears Tudors are utterly adorable (1936 catalog). Seems like a very practical house, too.

It must have been a big seller for Sears, too. Ive found Willards throughout the country, including unusual spots like Norfolk, Virginia and Tallahassee, Alabama!

It must have been a big seller for Sears, too. I've found Willards throughout the country, including unusual spots like Norfolk, Virginia and Tallahassee, Alabama! And the Willard was featured in this advertisement, promoting the low cost of owning a Sears House.

Apparently, sometime ago in Norwood Ohio, someone couldnt decide between the Willard and the Strathmore.

So they built this.

So they built this. It's a Sears Willard, with the Strathmore foyer. Pretty cute, isn't it?

Nice match!

Nice match - at least on the front porch!

If you know the precise address of this house, please send it along. It’s in Norwood, Ohio and the street number is 2215 (visible in the photos above). All I need now is the street’s name!

Update! Dale Haynes (from our Sears House Facebook group) discovered the street address! This house is on Glenside in Norwood, Ohio! Yay for Dale!!!  :)

    Can you help me identify the manufacturer and model of my 1920 Bungalow in Concord, NC?

    I don’t know how to attach pics here, but can easily do so in email.

    I don’t see an email address on the site, however. I read your post about Concord, but the house I am buying is different.

    Rose, I am pretty certain this is The Randolph.

    It was the brick and stucco version of The Willard and was featured in the 1932 Homes of Today catalog.

    It’s right around the corner from The Morley you posted yesterday.
