Sears Verona in River Forest

River Forest has only a handful of kit houses. One of them is the Sears Verona, a picturesque Dutch Colonial Revival.
 

1100 Keystone, River Forest.




Sears Verona from the 1928 Modern Homes catalog.



This Verona has vinyl siding and replacement windows but manages to retain its original charm.

The house was built in early 1928 for John Cummins, who lived with his sister, Ella. John owned the house until his death in October 1942.

These big colonials, of every style, are just wonderful. Thanks for finding us another excellent example.
