1935 Sears Honor Bilt Homes: The Amherst

With its Colonial front doorway, iron railed stoop and varied wall covering, this home is an attractive realization of these factors which are favored in better suburban and city home developments today. Some home builders prefer these homes of brick, others of siding. The Amherst is a good example of satisfactory results achieved by using both materials. The brickwork at the corners of the front wall is built out to form pilasters against which the frame projection of the second story finishes. The rear wall is treated full height with brick, while both gables have wide bevel siding (brick not included in price).

The Floor Plans

Not only does the exterior conform to extensively popular tastes but the floor plan too, is a splendid conception of practical arrangement. Note the nice balance of the first floor rooms as well as a direct passage from the front hall through the kitchen. Soap and water close by in the lavatory when you finish the weekly clean-up of basement or yard.

That quiet corner where you can balance the family budget or get the “meat” from your favorite book, will be found in the library space at rear of the living room. The size of the kitchen might indicate a crowded condition but plenty of space has been designed for all equipment and it really is a step-saving, efficient work center.

Each bedroom has two or more windows located to provide cross ventilation. Closets are above the average in size and an extra closet for linen storage is located in the hall next to the bath.

The overall dimensions are 29 ft. 6 in. wide by 27 ft. 4 in. deep and can be built on a 40 ft. lot.
