The Vintage Homes: Bungalow


Bungalows became extremely popular in the Denver area between 1910 and 1930. Relatively small in size, they are normally either one-story homes or two-story homes with dormer windows built into sloping roofs. Denver bungalows were typically built in the Craftsman style, but often include Queen Anne, Swiss or Japanese influences as well. Highly utilitarian, bungalows were known for their earth tones, hardwood floors, built-in cabinets, handsome fireplaces, exposed wood beams, stone chimneys and large front porches.

By the early 1900s leading up to World War I, companies like Sears & Roebuck, Montgomery Ward and the Aladdin Company were selling bungalows in styles that included Arts & Crafts, Colonial, Spanish and Tudor. You’ll find numerous stunning bungalow homes in Denver neighborhoods like Congress Park, Park Hill, Platt Park, Sloan’s Lake and Washington Park.
