American Bungalow Style by Robert Winter, Photographys by Alexander Vertikoff
With a flaming fire in the cozy hearth, a comfortable Morris chair, and soft, natural colors everywhere, bungalows have long embodied the ideal of the American home. At the turn of the century they took the country by storm, providing well-designed and well-priced shelter nationwide. Bungalows revolutionized residential architecture in America and grew into a beloved symbol of domesticity by offering stylish yet affordable housing for the average person. Today whole neighborhoods of bungalows are being saved and restored by people who appreciate the simple and natural lifestyle made possible by these small houses

Beautifully illustrated with more than three hundred color photographs, American Bungalow Style presents two dozen American houses that capture the bungalow spirit. Many are Arts and Crafts in style, others show a touch of Spain or colonial America, and all exemplify the charms that enticed thousands of bungalow buyers during the form's heyday from 1880 to 1930. Among the bungalows included are examples by famous architects from Frank Lloyd Wright to Bernard Maybeck, as well as Gustav Stickley's own log cabin retreat. Many are the work of anonymous but skilled builders and some were ordered by mail.

Bungalows may differ widely in style and size but they have in common a simplified plan that places most of the living spaces on one floor. They are typically one or one and a half stories high, low in profile and fitted with lots of built-ins and all the convinces of their time. On their own piece of land, with a garden in front or back and space to park a car, bungalows provided the privacy and independence that many Americans flavor.

The idea that simplicity and artistry could harmonize in one affordable house spurred the bungalow's popularity-a rare movement in which good architecture was found outside the world of the wealthy. Bungalows allowed people of modest means to achieve something they had long sought: respectability. With its special features the bungalow filled more than the need for shelter. It provided fulfillment of the American dream.

A fully illustrated appendix features more than one hundred furnishings suitable for bungalows and Arts and Crafts houses. This special catalogue section highlights modern reproductions of tables and chairs, lamps, textiles, wall coverings, tile and hardware that look right at home in bungalows old and new, commodious and compact.

    No knowledge off the people or location of today’s old photo.

    The book recommendation is beautifully photographed featuring various styles of bungalows. It covers everything from the exterior, the garden, porch, living areas, bathrooms even the attic and basement as well as furniture and decor. For those that love warm, unpainted interiors that are decorated as they would have been originally, this is a great book to have on your shelf. Amazon is currently showing it available used (click the book photo above, Amazon has a peek inside feature) but you can also grab it on eBay and Thrift Books.

    Very pleasant scene in today’s heading house pic. I have pics of my father when he was a preschooler (1920, +/- a cple of years), with a girl cousin in some of the pics; same big bow (albeit, a white one) in her hair. Cute!

    I see Priscilla curtains in the attic’s front dormer. Either the lady of the house was detail-oriented, or else… the attic space was at least partially finished off??

      My Pop (grandfather) was born in 1919. His family was from Sweden and looked a lot like these folks (albeit we have more pronounced noses 😆). I think the lady of the house looks like a sweet, pleasant woman. This pic is 100% heartwarming.

        Agree with all of you on the date of the old photo. My grandmother was born in 1912 and I have a picture when she was 7, thus 1919, where she is dressed identically to this girl; shoes, stockings, dress, and bow. All the styles match exactly.

    Here’s a fantastic 1920 place in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Chicago. It comes with frontage on the Chicago River. Hopefully, the new owners will be gentle when freshening it up. $1,149,000.

      Oh my! With a little polishing up the house would be splendid! I am always smitten by homes that back to rivers-must be a “Wind in The Willows” thing. I would have to call the house Toad Manor. Imagine sipping a glass of wine on your back terrace with that view! And there is a fantastic architectural salvage warehouse in Ravenswood, which would be very handy for delivering all the beautiful things to finish it!

    Here is an 1847 home that my partner and I looked at a few years ago before we found our current house. Called “Java Head” it overlooks the Hudson River

    119 Church St Marlborough, NY 12547
    $475,000
    https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/119-Church-St-Marlborough-NY-12547/32851472_zpid/?fullpage=true

    When I saw it, the place was in rough shape, covered in vinyl siding and fake shutters, a few broken windows and the porches were in poor shape. So much potential though! Anyway, Someone snapped it up real quick before we could get a tour of the interior. They did a fantastic job fixing it up! They ripped off the vinyl siding and exposed the original clapboard and even hung functional shutters! The river view is amazing from the side porch.

    Here is what it looked like before:

      Wow, what a difference! So much work went into its new-old look. Lovely house & the view is pure Eden.

      The little addition on the side — any ideas about its purpose? The interior pics show its upstairs half, which is only a small nook, not enough accomplish much. Odd way to bring in more light, but I can’t think of another reason for it.

    1980 board & batten modern

    1667 Salem, MA 550,000
    From the realtor: Built in 1667 for shipwright Stephen Daniels, the “Daniels House” is one of Salem’s oldest residences. Featuring multiple fireplaces, wide pine floors, exposed beams…You won’t find another house like this. According to records, the oldest parts of this building are the lower two stories of the southern half. The northern half, the third floor, and the large lean-to ell were added by Samuel Silsbee in 1756. Silsbee was Daniels’s great-grandson and a carpenter by trade.

    The view of the neighborhood is a mix of houses that have had their sidings modernized, etc., but there a few interesting houses that seem to preserve their character. I love how this particular house has retained its identity.

    Kia Ora from New Zealand.

    Oh how I love this just the right size for me Arts and Crafts(?) style bungalow in the South Island’s biggest city of Christchurch. It looks to have all of the original doors, windows and built-ins with a sympathetically designed modern kitchen. The price is $NZD599,000.00.

    https://www.realestate.co.nz/3439877

    The exterior of this Victorian bungalow with it’s black wrought iron fencing in the charming Auckland seaside village of Devonport has great curb appeal. They have redone the interior and while it is bordering on too modern, it has retained enough character details (doors, windows and fireplaces) to make me feel comfortable including it. It is for Auction and has a valuation of $NZD2,100,000.

    https://www.bayleys.co.nz/1450997

    An English couple bought and restored this stunning Arts and Crafts two-storey home in the west Auckland suburb of Titirangi. They call it Quambi House and “Quambi” is an Australian Aboriginal word which means “Shelter”. They did a superb job, in my opinion and Titirangi has a really vibrant and artsy atmosphere and as you would be only a few minutes walk from the town centre you could enjoy it as much as you like. It is up for Auction but unfortunately I am not able to find what it’s valuation is but suffice it to say it would be over $NZD1,000,000.

        Well spotted. It does look like a skull or as ddbacker suggested, a bearded man wearing glasses. It must be the wood grain because I can’t imagine someone actually messing with it to create that. I wonder if they would sell the piano with the house ;).

      • JulieC says: 109 comments

        These houses are in the Auckland area which is very expensive but there are areas that are considerably cheaper, relatively speaking. I will keep looking in those areas and post them but it is always going to be at least $NZD350K or more.

    Although this is not a style I would usually be drawn to, for unknown reasons I really like it. It just seems so inviting and “homey”. I swear one day I will make my long awaited trip to New Zealand and Australia. The danger is I may not want to come back home. Thanks for all of your shares.

      Very interesting. Looks like it has an exhibition kitchen. Or possibly more correctly, an exibitionist’s kitchen, lol. I guess you don’t get up in the morning and go start your coffee in your underwear. Or maybe you do but it is just a lot more exiting!

      Compared to the street view, they definitely put a lot of good work into cleaning it up and renovating it.

    1948 Cape Cod/Bungalow?
    Davisville, WV

    Hi! All,

    Below is another link to a fabulous house in Marietta, OH. Not sure if it’s been posted here before; I’m fairly new to the site. Here’s the description from Realtor.com:

    “Tree lined drive leads to a sense of calm complimented by nature, gardens and park like one acre grounds. This urban 1885 Victorian mansion enjoys total privacy and at the same time the proximity to the city. Over 5, 000 square feet of careful planning and restoration which complies to the period. The result is a residence that shows equal appreciation for history, modernity and comfort. Timeless architecture that reflects the Eastlake style with an exuberant display of rich artistic details. Personal contents are negotiable and timely possession.The perfect Bed and Breakfast opportunity. We invite you to make your own history at Cisler Terrace Mansion.”

    Listing agent is Tania Moore, Realtor at Re/Max Properties of the Valley. There are 32 pictures and a virtual tour. For those that like natural woodwork (unpainted), most rooms have original woodwork and I think the kitchen looks awesome as well as the foyer, main stairs and just about everything else. If I could, I’d buy it today and not change a thing. Okay, maybe clean up the gardens and patios a bit.

I don’t mind painted woodwork and it seems to work well in this house. I really like the step-down bathroom under the stairs and pretty much everything else about this house. Again, beautiful!

      Fort Worth, TX

      Waxahachie, which at the turn of the last century was in one of the most productive cotton growing regions of Texas, has a wealth of Victorian homes. This particular house appears to have been in a semi-rural locale on the outskirts of town. Indeed, sad that the gable ornaments are missing but overall the house appears to be well preserved. Thanks for sharing.

    Glenmoore, PA / $345,000: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/61-Mapleflower-Rd-Glenmoore-PA-19343/54735914_zpid/?fullpage=true

    And a French listing that i’ve already shared a couple months back, but my bf and I keep looking at it. It’s in a village near our town accross the Loire river. This is an old tannery from the 16th C (211,000 €). The drawbacks are: no garage, parking in the street nearby, and especially the fact that the small backyard is shared with the neighbor. But this multi-levels house is so attractive and atypical!! Do not miss the 3D tour too!

      The home in PA has such nice potential. I do, however, question the build date. Late 1600;s is possible, but 1700’s is more likely. There were no colonial settlements near there until much lager. Maryland and Delaware in the late 1630’s and Pennsylvania in the 1680’s. Early buildings would have been wood as it was easily available. Stone would be much later once resources were more available. Would love to see how someone restores this one.

    1920 school. Chalkboards, old stage, cute kitchen. All the neat things an old school building should have. On a side note, I’ve been all over KS, but never been to Glade. Makes it even more interesting. $58K

      Interesting, but kind of sad. Looks like the last kids ended the school year not that long ago and not enough kids to replace them, school just closed up and left a bunch of stuff behind. Or maybe they got a new, better school and just decided this one wasn’t worth fixing up and using anymore.

      Could make a nice house though, big, but not crazy big. Wish our house had an in-door gym like that! But of course here in CA that would run about $4M as is, in a bad part of town.

      Some great rooms, those bathrooms! I kind of cringed at the staircase otherwise it’s a gorgeous Tudor Revival.

      I cringed at that basement room with the large candleabra (sp?). I immediately thought of a torture dungeon. LOL, just kidding. The bathrooms are definitely outstanding.

    Oh no! A few people shared this in link exchanges. They claimed it was a Sears but I don’t believe it was or maybe they just used parts? In any case, burned down. 🙁

    Priced just under $750,000 is this architecturally distinguished 1934 home in the Cincinnati suburb of Wyoming: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/185-Linden-Dr-Cincinnati-OH-45215/34379228_zpid/?fullpage=true Not sure whether this is a “Norman” style or French Provincial style home. (or ?) The front facade is very distinguished in its details. I like the oriel turret jutting off from the side. Not many new homes were being built during the Depression years so the original owner must have been well off. Very clean and neat looking inside.

    Another unique Ohio mansion grade home is this 1912 “German Tudor” (?) in Oakwood, Ohio priced at $649,000: https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/202-E-Schantz-Ave-Oakwood-OH-45409/35075302_zpid/?fullpage=true I cannot recall another one even vaguely like it. Over 5,500 sq. feet inside according to the listing. In one bathroom, the sink and toilet look to be mirror plated or at least highly reflective. Nothing run of the mill about this property.

    • Randy C says: 385 comments

      Unique is an understatement. I’ve never seen anything even remotely similar to this.

    I am going to post this again tomorrow for the new week, but I am afraid that I will forget, so am doing it now first. I am a big fan of staircases. My favorites are the ones that seem to be in three styles of houses, Italianate, Second Empire, and Gothic revival. I know that there are antique catalogs of stair parts on line, but I don’t know if they were printed as early as the stairs I am describing. These have a turned newel post at the bottom, (often with flat tapered and faceted middles, both carved, inlaid, and molded or not). The balusters are turned with the turned tops inserted into holes in the bannister and the bottoms are dovetailed into the steps. They may have square, round or multiply faceted bottoms or middles. Each step has an applied molded lip rather than an overhanging tread. This molding covers the side of the dovetail where it inserts into the tread. There is often a decorative element on the side of each step.
    -I love the variety of details in the turnings, moldings and step side details. The bannister itself seems to be wider than it is high. The sides curve out from a flat bottom with a rounded edge. There is a cove beyond the rounded edge that curves up to a rounded convex center of the top.
    – I want to start separate Pinterest Pins for each of these types of details with the addresses of the house in which they reside if the owners permit it and the city and state alone if the owners don’t.
    – If these were not a regular catalog item, but custom made, there may be regional characteristics, like those on period furniture. If so a database of regional styles might be created.
    – I would like to ask the experts if there is a name used to describe the decorative detail on the side of the steps has its own designated name, such as balusters, bannister, molding, tread, etc.
    ???????????????????????????????
    – Can anyone out there tell me if there are one or more names by which the side detail is called?
    ???????????????????????????????
    – Even though I have specified three styles in this comment, yet my own Baltimore Federal townhouse, (c.1800, which is on the 1820 Baltimore City map, but not the 1801) has such a side detail on it as well. I would not limit the entries for Pins to any style as long as those adding theirs agree to specify the style of the house they were originally in if known.
    -Thanks for any input you may have to give.

      • Joe says: 535 comments

        At this point I am trying to get a name for the stair side ornaments. I won’t set up the Pinterest boards until I have the proper names.

          Are you talking about the stair brackets? Also called a step bracket.

          Joe, according to , OLD-HOUSE DICTIONARY by Steven J. Phillips, copyright 1989, page 32, these elements are defined as: step brackets. A flight of open string stairs that are decorated with brackets on the exposed outer string is termed, a bracketed stair.
          Hope this helps.
