Sears Homes in Raleigh, North Carolina

August 11th, 2010 Sears Homes No comments

For several years, my daughter and my brother lived in Raleigh and when I’d travel down there to visit them, I’d drive around and look for Sears Homes. I found a couple in the downtown area, and they’re real beauties!

The first one (see pictures below) is a Sears Alhambra. The next one is either a Wardway Venice (a kit home from Montgomery Ward) or a Sears Winona. Hard to know for sure.

However, I am certain that they’re in unusually beautiful condition and a real treat to behold! And if they’re like most of the Sears Homes I find, the homeowners have no idea that they’re living in a historically significant house.
