Recently, I drove to Cape Charles to photograph some of the kit homes there. First off, let me say that I *LOVE* that community and if anyone would like to bequeath The Sears Lady (that’s me) a piece of property in Cape Charles, that’d be just dandy. It really is a beautiful place and I’m surprised it did not make Forbes’ “Best Places to Live” list.
Really and truly.
I’ll be expanding this post as the days go by (these picture-heavy posts take time), but here’s a few very interesting homes I found on the main drag into Cape Charles.

Modern Home #126 is a fine and spacious home.

Here it is, in Cape Charles. Note the detail of the bracketing under the eaves. The front porch has been closed in, but this is definitely a #126.

The Aladdin Sheffield was a very popular house for Aladdin.
Here's an Aladdin Sheffield in Cape Charles, Virginia (on the Eastern Shore)
This was one of Sears' biggest and nicest homes.
Right down the street from the Sheffield (see above) is the Sears Glenn Falls. Although it's partly obscured by the trees, you can see the familiar lines of the Glenn Falls.
The Pheonix is one of Sears' most unusual kit homes. Interesting design and lots of fun details.

The porch has been altered, but I'd be willing to be money that this is indeed a Sears Somerset.
