The Lexington

1923 Sears Roebuck Modern Homes

The Lexington, offered by Sears in 1923, was one of their highest priced models. With traditional detailing, it was a Colonial Revival with a classical entry, dentil molding at the roof line, pilasters at each corner, and turned spindles on the balustrade over both sun room and breakfast room. The strict symmetry of the facade gives it a grounded presence that would have appealed to many home buyers during the 1920s. Many windows, strategically placed, would have admitted light and welcome cross ventilation making it very comfortable in all but the most inclement weather.
