Bungalows and Cottages

Updated April 1, 2020

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.

At that time (ca. 1919) the front rooms, porch, and other Craftsman features were added. The rear (NW) retains early German-type siding.” — Preservation North Carolina
