|Sears Ashmore • 622 Farish Street, Charlottesville, Virginia
Oh, how we do love the Ashmore! I may have said that exact thing before, in previous posts about the Ashmore... but, it bears repeating! This one has had some very tasteful additions, but retains absolutely all of its original charm. It's for sale right now (January 29, 2020) for... $1,895,000.00.
Let's just take a look at it!
|Sears Ashmore in the 1920 Sears Modern Homes catalog.
|This fireplace nook is my favorite part of the Ashmore. This one has the original built-in bookcases, with the original leaded-glass inserts, and the original banquettes for seating. That trim is beautiful!
|This room is actually the dining room, in the original floor plan... note the beautiful built-in. The James J. Humpall testimonial Ashmore in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, has the white trim and built in, as well, but the glass panels in the built-in buffet are of a slightly different design.
|See? This is that side of the house.
That's all I've got for you! Just wanted to showcase this beauty, and save the photos of the original sections of the house, for posterity. By the way, the listing gives 1930 as the build year for this home, but that can not be correct. This model was last offered in the 1924 Sears Modern Homes catalog.
