Sears Kit Home? The seller believes this home to be a Rembrandt Model Sears Kit Home. The home was featured in Jeanette Fields March 26 1997 article about Sears Homes. Sears Homes were constructed with the highest quality building materials available at the time. As you enter the reception hall, you are greeted by a lovely staircase leading to the second floor. This home still contains the original staircase, windows, ceiling moldings and French doors. The 21x13 living room living room features a colonial fireplace flanked by mullioned doors opening to the large heated sunroom. The many widows fill the room with sunshine. The sunroom is light and bright. a chosen spot in winter or summer. The dining room is good size with windows on two side and original built in china cabinets. The large master bedroom contains two closets. There are two other light-filled bedrooms. The basement is partially finished and and is large enough to create additional spaces to enjoy. Pair all of this with an oversized lot which provides room for expansion. Only three families have lived in and loved this home. This home is situated in the Ridgeland Historic District. This is an opportunity to become the fourth owner to live in this piece of Americana. This home is being sold as is, which enables the buyer to restore and make better a piece of history. Interior and exterior work is being done on the house and grounds. All the work has been done. The entire home has been repainted. The exterior is now an appealing grey and white. Much landscaping has been done. The deck has been completed and newly painted. Every interior room has been redecorated. The dining room wallpaper has been stripped and the room freshly painted. The pictures show some of the improvements. Come see the rest. This home has been transformed from and ugly duckling to a swan. See it now.
