Sears Homes on the Eastern Shore

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.

Right down the street from the Sheffield (see above) is the Sears Glenn Falls. Although its 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 Id be willing to be money that this is indeed a Sears Somerset.

    Aww, it’s sad how many porches have been closed in on the old ones! They’re almost always hideous!
