About three years ago, my husband and I revisited his old Alma Mater (Washington and Lee). We also drove around town and found this Sears Alhambra (see photo below) in a quiet residential area in Lexington. I’ll be retuning to Lexington in a few days and would love to get the address for this house, so that I can re-visit it, and also scope out the neighborhood for other Sears Homes. If you know the address of this house or its street name, please leave a comment below!
Do you know what a Sears Home is? These were true kits, 12,000 pieces of house, sold out of the Sears Roebuck catalog. Sears promised that “a man of average abilities” could have one of these kits built in 90 days. Click here for more info on Sears kit homes.
