Searcy Roebuck house 1908 built $725 cost

Sears Roebuck home? 1908 built?  Plan 115?

This home has just sold and reportedly it is a Sears Roebuck home that was built over 100 years ago.  The setting is magnificent with huge trees.  A search turned up a similar home shown below in an advertisement.  The price is amazing, isn't it!  The actual home has had some add-ons and changes.  For sure a porch in front was enclosed and part of it became a closet.  It would be interesting to know if anyone out there knows how the homes were shipped and put together.  Help us out, Searcy Sleuths!

Very cool. I have read about those kit homes. It was sturdier than a manufactured home for sure!

I'm staring at the price, Barbara.  It is pretty amazing how much homes have escalated in price over the years.  I hope that Sears home manages to be restored in the future.

The buyers would love for it to be restored but it would need to be moved to another site.

I did sell land and 2 homes, including a Sears catalog home on it, along with several more acres. The developer was very smart - created several  of  Sears catalog homes, updated version and we sold some of those too.   Really fun project
