Bungalow Heaven, a historic neighborhood in Pasadena, contains over 800 craftsman style homes built between 1900-1930 - one of the largest concentrations of restored craftsman style bungalows in California. The Bungalow Heaven Landmark District was established in 1989 by local residents who wanted to keep the original flavor and architectural style of the neighborhood. It's bordered by Washington Blvd. on the north, Orange Grove Blvd. on the south, Holliston Ave. on the east, and Mentor Ave. on the west.
The "California Bungalow" style was developed here in California. As it gained popularity in other parts of the country it became known simply as a "Bungalow." It represented a departure from the ornate Victorian Style and was an opportunity for the common man to own a simple, detached home.
Gone was the formal entry and parlor, and was replaced by an early twentieth century idea: the "living room."
Homes in Bungalow Heaven can be restored, like this one above, but not replaced. In that sense, walking through the community is really like stepping back in time.
In an age of disposable everything, it's wonderful to see not only individual homes but an entire neighborhood returned to it's former glory.
