I believe this is a Sears Randolph in Bensenville. The Sears Randolph as delivered came as all brick with a stucco/timbered front gable. This Bensenville is all brick on the front gable. The original buyers opted not to get a fireplace.
The room dimensions of this house match those of the Randolph, and the house is located right by the train tracks--convenient for unloading all the materials sent from Sears. The window placements match the Randolph on the three sides that I could see.
The frame version of the Randolph was called the Willard. Some of the Willards/Randolphs in real life have a straight line on the front gable, rather than the curved roofline shown in the catalog.

The Randolph was sold only from 1929-1932.
