Beautiful Christiansburg, Virginia - With Sears Homes

April 27th, 2012 Sears Homes 2 comments

In 2008, Dale and I traveled around Roanoke, Bedford, Lynchburg and Christiansburg looking for kit homes. We only found a handful when we went to Christiansburg, but we found them all in less than 20 minutes.

Last weekend, Hubby Dear and I returned to Christiansburg, and this time, I drove the entire city and didn’t find any more than Dale and I found in 2008!

It's tough to get good pictures in hilly areas, but here's the Princeville in Christiansburg. This was a fairly rare model for Sears, but easy to spot!

Number 306, as seen in the 1916 catalog.

Again, due to those hills, it's hard to get a good shot, but here's a view of the top of that oval window.

The Glen Falls from the 1928 catalog.

Is this a Glen Falls? The owner does not think so, but I suspect that it might be.

The Sears Matoka was a popular house (1919 catalog).

I had to snap this photo from the wrong side (due to landscaping obstructions), but it’s definitely a Matoka!

Headed home, we passed through Roanoke and I had to dash into this neighborhood when I heard the Sears Homes calling me. And there, I found this little Walton!
