The Sears Del Rey is another stylish and popular bungalow that hails from California. Sears Modern Homes, as well as other kit home manufacturers, used popular designs of the day to sell more kit homes. I’ve traced a few of them to their origins in California.
Although Sears Modern Home catalogs tell us that the Del Rey comes from Pasadena, California I have not found it, yet. I have found a few examples of the bungalow style in Pasadena but I haven’t found ties to those exact homes like I did the other California bungalows I have featured.
To see what would become the Sears Savoy as well as offered by many other companies as a kit or a pattern click here.
Those who know me know that I have likely tried very hard to find THAT exact bungalow in Pasadena. And, you are correct. I’ve nosed around a lot and I have thoroughly checked the obvious places like Del Rey Ave in Pasadena and Bungalow Heaven.
I may not have found THE Sears Del Rey, yet, but thanks to Debbie and Ben George from the facebook group Sears Homes I do have one for show and tell!

And, special thanks to the Georges for sharing their beautiful home with all of my readers!
