On The Market

On his latest excursion, Chicago Mag's Dennis Rodkin visits a "modern home" straight out of an old Sears catalogue. Not today's Sears, but the one that used to run the world. From 1908-1940, one could simply order up a stylish Sears kit home from an array of models and have it stocked with mass produced fixtures. Sears sold over 70,000 homes in this manner, so you're bound to have seen a few. Once in a while the stock "modern" design gets a really great updating, which is the case with this featured Rogers Park foursquare. The owners attacked the 1910 home with a "period-sensitive approach". See it all in Rodkin's walkthrough. [Chicago Mag, listing]
