The listing also comes with a bit of a bonus: blueprints to turn the one-car garage out back into a tiny house.

Delightful Del Ray Bungalow

This Alexandria bungalow was reimagined as part of the Sears Modern Homes project, which ran from 1908 to 1940 and offered buyers access to the top technology available at that time via mail order kits shipped with a boxcar.  At the front of the home, there is a converted sunroom with French doors that open to the outdoors, creating a patio feel. In the back of the home, there are floor-to-ceiling windows that offer views out to the garden and stone patio. Not only does the property come with a one-car garage and long driveway, but it also features a utility shed and a basement wine cellar. UrbanTurf’s favorite detail is the stained glass window in the bathroom. Other examples of detailing include original oak floors and moldings in the living room, a wine fridge near the kitchen, a gas fireplace and a sea pearl quartzite kitchen island countertop. Upstairs, the primary bedroom suite includes a bathroom with a double sink and extra large shower.
