The Sheffield

Sears Honor Bilt Homes: 1928

The Sheffield reflects the latest plan in bungalow architecture. It is another good example of combining beautiful English lines, with just a touch of the famous California studio type. Adaptable to any climate, it offers every modern comfort. There is a saving in every dollar of its sturdy construction. the rooms are carefully planned to provide ample space, and reduce much of the housework. All this beauty, comfort, and value make it not just a house, but a real home. The shingled exterior attracts passers-by. A high shingled roof, sloping down from pointed gables, is an outstanding feature. The front gable has rough cypress siding at the peak and an attractive louvre in the center. Observe the smart effect of the brick chimney, topped with three pots, and its pleasing lines carried down to the ground. A trim, but sturdy column is all that is necessary on the stone porch. Note, also, the attractiveness of the front door. An artistic gate, swinging on old fashioned strap iron hinges, opens to the passageway, leading to side entry.
