The Hillsboro

1935 Sears Honor-Bilt Homes

1935 Sears Catalog: The Hillsboro

The exterior walls of this most attractive home are planned to be finished with old English or Tavern face brick. We suggest colors ranging from light reds and browns to dark blues and a few blacks. Lots of color and a little careless touch to the stone work, shutters and wrought iron rail will give the right feeling. Warm shades of cream and brown in the stone will be helpful.

The floor plan is a dream. From the front terrace, we pass through a batten type front door equipped with ornamental wrought iron hinges and hardware. The hall gives a fine impression. A semi-open stair leading to the second floor has iron railing and balusters and small iron grill, opening from the stair landing into the living room. Note the connecting passage from kitchen to front hall and convenient lavatory for the children to “wash up.”

The living room and dining room are large, well lighted and offer good wall space and many interesting details. The kitchen is an ideal work center - a place for everything.

The successful designing of the garage as a part of the main building is desired by every home owner but it seldom works out as successfully as in this plan.

The second floor has two very large bedrooms, studio and bath, all with good head room. Specifications include linoleum, enamel for kitchen and bath, oak floors, back band trim, 1-panel doors. La Tosca hardware and cabinets.
