THE WINONA COTTAGE
From 1908–1940, Sears, Roebuck and Co. sold about 70,000 – 75,000 homes through their mail-order Modern Homes program. These homes came with all of the materials and instructions necessary for construction. Buyers would place custom orders, with options to choose everything from kitchen cabinet colors to variations in the floor plan. The Winona was a popular model between 1927 and 1932. This Sears Cottage was constructed in West Cape May around that time and brought back to life this year as a Beach Plum Farm Cottage.
A side door provides an entrance to the first floor, where you’ll find a spacious, inviting living room game table and wet bar. A master bedroom and bathroom are also on the first floor with access to a washer and dryer.
The second floor may be reached inside through a set of stairs, or from the front door on the breezy and relaxing screened -in porch. Through the dining room is the fully equipped kitchen.
Kids will love having their own space in a bedroom with two twin beds, while parents will appreciate the privacy of a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom. The second floor is also home to an additional bathroom with a small bathtub.
The walls of The Winona Cottage are adorned with the history of this home’s past: beginning as parts shipped from the pages of a catalog to becoming a home to today’s visitors in Cape May.
