The Bellewoods of Des Plaines

The Sears Bellewood was an English cottage sold from 1930 until 1933. It must have been a decent seller, because Sears offered two versions of the house in the 1933 catalog--a model with different exterior finish was called the Pembrook. 

 I think found three Bellewoods in Des Plaines.

1707 E. Algonquin, Des Plaines. Cook County says it was built in 1930.
The Bellewood from the 1932 Sears Modern Homes catalog.



1470 Henry, Des Plaines.




1079 E. Prairie Ave., Des Plaines. I'm iffy on this one. The front dormer might have been modified to accommodate the added second floor.

I love that shed dormer on that Bellewood. What a great idea, and it fits in nicely.
