And then there were 10…….

A while back I did a blog post about the The Nine Sears Alhambras in Cincinnati.

Well, just today, I did a quick scan of real estate listings in Cincinnati (gotta keep my eye out for Sears Houses we all missed), and OMG!

There is another Alhambra in Cincinnati.  That makes 10.

The exterior looks to be in great condition still, but the interior photos of the inside…….well…….it could be a gorgeous home again.  And it can be yours for only $79,000!

Zillow listing for a Sears Alhambra in Cincinnati

The Auditor and the real estate listing both state the home was built in 1935, but that is incorrect.  The  house is shown in the 1930 Census with Lester Herrick, his wife Harriet, an adult son, and a near adult daughter living in the residence.  Lester Herrick stated he owned the home at that time.

The Alhambra was offered in the Sears Modern Homes catalog from 1918 until 1929.
