Yonkers Fairy Tale House

This beautiful and quaint English style cottage/bungalow is part of a 1920’s neighborhood of unusual small houses, many from the Sears Catalog. Yes, we said Sears. Sears Catalog Homes (sold under the Sears Modern Homes name) were catalog and kit houses sold primarily through mail order by Sears, Roebuck and Company, an American retailer. Sears reported that more than 70,000 of these homes were sold in North America between 1908 and 1940. While sold primarily to East Coast and Midwest states, Sears homes have been located as far south as Florida and as far west as California. More than 370 different home designs in a wide range of architectural styles and sizes were offered over the program’s 33-year history.

Phase one of this extensive whole house major renovation was the exterior. The project included exterior paint, roof and chimney upgrades.
