American Bungalow Style America’s first bungalow was built on Cape Cod, Massachusetts by William Gibbons Preston in 1879. He was a visionary at the forefront of a movement away from the ornate Victorian décor of the day as he began building homes using basic elements and natural materials. These homes emphasized simplicity, honesty, artistry and integrity, both as a design philosophy and as a way of life. They blended with their surroundings in a subtle way, usually with a garden out back. And they introduced Americans to the idea that a home could harmonize natural simplicity with distinctive and innovative touches and still be affordable. The bungalow was practical and to many, it quickly symbolized the best of the good life. As the bungalow building craze continued, so began America’s love affair with what has come to be the symbol of urban living at its best.
