Bungalows and Cottages

Updated June 24, 2021

A bungalow is a one or one-and-a-half story home, typically with a front porch and often, though not always, relatively small and intimate. “Cottage” as an architectural style (rather than as functional description, such as vacation cottage) describes small homes, informal and descended from modest farm houses and other rural dwellings.

    • District NRHP nomination: “W.E. Lindsay is thought to have been the original owner of this Craftsman bungalow, which was probably built around 1920. In 1922 Lindsay was the manager and secretary-treasurer of the Alpine Woolen Mills. He lived at this address in 1928.
    • “The story-and-a-half frame house has a conventional bungalow form, with a low-pitched side-gable roof that supports a large gabled dormer and flares to engage a front porch. The porch and a porte cochere on the left side have stout square wood columns on river-cobble pedestals. The honey-colored cobbles, which are also used for the foundation and two interior chimneys, are not an unusual material for a ca. 1920 bungalow but they stand out in Mount Airy where most stonework from the period is local granite. The house is sheathed with wood shingles and there are large triangular brackets in the gables of the main roof and porte cochere and under the front corners of the porch roof.
    • “Since the house was first surveyed in the 1980s, two added front entries—presumably the result of the house’s conversion into apartments—have been removed to return the façade to its original three bays of windows flanking the front door, apparently when the house was returned to its original use as a single-family dwelling. Other features include replacement windows, exposed rafter ends, and rear shed and gable dormers.
    • “By 1948 the house had been converted to the Lindsey Apartments, a name that remained in use into the 1960s.”

  • Listed May 19, 2021
  • Last sale: $145,000, March 2015
  • Neighborhood: Old South Mebane Historic District
  • Note: County property records show the date of the house as 1950, which appears unlikely given its design. The neighborhood’s National Register nomination gives a more likely circa 1920 date.
    • District NRHP nomination: “This is a 1-story hip-roofed vernacular house on a corner lot, finished in vinyl siding, with projecting front and side gables, interior brick chimneys and an exterior chimney on north elevation, and several early additions on the rear (west) elevation. A hip-roofed projecting bay is on the north elevation and pointed louvered vents are in the gable ends. A wrap-around porch, partially enclosed, is in the angle of the ell on the façade, supported by battered wood posts resting on brick piers. Windows are flat-topped with replacement 1/1 sash and exterior fixed shutters.”
    • The listing notes a “20 x 40 unwired historical workshop.” The National Register nomination describes it as a “1-story front-gable vernacular wood building at the rear of the lot, facing W. McKinley Street; finished in rolled asphalt, with a 3-bay façade, a centered double-leaf entrance door, and fixed 9-light sash. The roof is sheathed with metal. Its appearance suggests that it may have served a commercial purpose.”

    • District NRHP nomination: “W.E. Lindsay is thought to have been the original owner of this Craftsman bungalow, which was probably built around 1920. In 1922 Lindsay was the manager and secretary-treasurer of the Alpine Woolen Mills. He lived at this address in 1928.
    • “The story-and-a-half frame house has a conventional bungalow form, with a low-pitched side-gable roof that supports a large gabled dormer and flares to engage a front porch. The porch and a porte cochere on the left side have stout square wood columns on river-cobble pedestals. The honey-colored cobbles, which are also used for the foundation and two interior chimneys, are not an unusual material for a ca. 1920 bungalow but they stand out in Mount Airy where most stonework from the period is local granite. The house is sheathed with wood shingles and there are large triangular brackets in the gables of the main roof and porte cochere and under the front corners of the porch roof.
    • “Since the house was first surveyed in the 1980s, two added front entries—presumably the result of the house’s conversion into apartments—have been removed to return the façade to its original three bays of windows flanking the front door, apparently when the house was returned to its original use as a single-family dwelling. Other features include replacement windows, exposed rafter ends, and rear shed and gable dormers.
    • “By 1948 the house had been converted to the Lindsey Apartments, a name that remained in use into the 1960s.”
