A Sears Avalon in Perry, Oklahoma

While google driving around Perry Oklahoma a few years ago I happened upon a Sears Avalon.   And what a sweet Avalon it is! Thanks to one of my college classmates who was kind enough to take photos for me since he lives in that area.

The Sears offered the Avalon from 1920-1926. If you check out Rosemary Thornton’s website you can see several examples of this popular bungalow across the country.

The Avalon in Perry was the home of Anton Louis Dolezal and his wife Sadie and their five children. The best I can tell, using real estate records and the Sanborn Maps, this Avalon was likely built in 1926. Anton passed away in 1929 and his wife Sadie passed away in 1962. I wonder if there are any descendants in or around Perry now?

What a beauty and a PERFECT match!

Here is the floor plan enlarged. It doesn’t show the second floor attic space but when finished in there are likely two more bedrooms.

In this last photo you can see the right side and a little of the second floor dormer hidden behind the trees. I imagine that second floor came in handy with a family of five children!

 What a beautiful home! I wonder if the owners know it is a Sears kit home?

Do you know of a Sears Avalon? Do you know of a Sears kit home or any other kit home?   I wonder if there are any more kit homes in Perry?   I drove around via google street view and nothing caught my attention.  If so, you may email me at searshomes@yahoo.com or contact me on facebook here.

    I lived in Perry for 50 years. I do know some of the Dolezal family there. What street is this house located on?

    What a beautiful house! Based on my research, more than 90% of the people living in these houses didn’t realize what they had until I knocked on their door and told them!

    This discovery of a Sears Avalon is such a gift to the community! What a treasure!

    No, I didn’t see your reply to my comment about John. I guess the administrator of that page deleted the post because the homeowner got a little upset about it.

    Hello, I am doing a school project on this house and I was wondering if you could send me some pictures of the inside. If you are willing please contact my teacher at coc11@scasd.org
