Modern Craftsman Bungalow in Alameda, CA
Traditional Home, Modern Comforts
Sharing a quiet street with Victorians, Craftsman, and Colonial
homes in Alameda's East End, this one and a half story craftsman
house fits into the the turn of the century character of the neighborhood
with the use of sloping roofs, eaves with exposed rafters, and a
full length front porch.
Unlike the dark interiors of traditional bungalows, this modern
bungalow brings light into the living areas through dormer windows
above the two-story space that links the living room & entry
hall with the sleeping rooms above. Wood wainscoting, built-in book
cases, cabinets, and window seats adorn the interiors of the bungalow.
The house meets the backyard with a pergola (trellis covered porch)
which offers excellent shade and wind protection.
