Just think what you could do with a 120-square-foot studio in your backyard.

Located in San Rafael, this three-bedroom, two-bath courtyard model Eichler was built in 1957. The charming midcentury home has had some major updates throughout, and the compact, flexible floor plan has lots of potential for further modernization. 

The home has 1,506 square feet of living space and a beautifully landscaped backyard, which features one of the home's highlights—a detached, 120-square-foot studio designed to match the main house. The separate "cabana" could serve as a home office, a yoga studio, an art studio, or even a children's playroom. Another interesting feature is the finished and insulated two-car garage, which is currently set up as a home gym and a children's play area.

The home's exterior has a fresh coat of paint,  a new modern fence, and beautiful landscaping.
