This Sears kit house in Cheverly went under contract in four days, for a $5,650 premium. Its interior retains some of the original details, like the hardwood floors throughout and the decorative wall columns in the formal dining room, but juxtaposes these with interesting updates like the recessed glass shelving and built-in cabinets in the same room. The sunroom-like kitchen has a pass-through window and a shiplap half-cove ceiling, and the house also has an attic bedroom/bonus room; a lower level with a rec room, bedroom, and full bath; and a P-shaped rear deck and a detached garage.
