Bungalow Heaven Home Tour
31st Bungalow Heaven Home Tour
As Seen Through A Lens
Historic Homes & Artisan Demonstrations
Escape the confines of your four walls
Delight in living spaces steeped in early 20th century history. The 31st Annual Bungalow Heaven Home Tour has been reimagined: As Seen Through a Lens. Docents will lead a video walk-through of seven historic homes, providing insightful commentary about the home’s architectural details and history. Separate videos will include artisans demonstrating their talents in restoration and sharing tips and tricks of their trade. A reservation-only Zoom Q & A with California bungalow historians will be held during the Home Tour to provide an opportunity to learn more about our featured homes.
The tour will feature homes in Pasadena, California built in the Craftsman and English Revival style architecture from 1900 to about 1925. In the Craftsman homes, river rock and redwood shingles augment deep front porches, wide windows and interior details of wood, hardware, tile and glass to create a truly welcoming atmosphere. The English Revival homes feature steeply pitched roofs, multi-paned windows, stuccoed exterior, arched front doorways, – and in some cases a slightly storybook romanticism. The houses on our tour meld original historic elements, beautiful restorations and period appropriate renovations.
The pre-recorded video tour will be available for streaming from April 22nd-28th, 2021. The Q & A Zoom will be conducted midway through the week. We are proud to invite you to view the wonderful private properties our neighbors have generously offered to share for this exclusive online tour.
Tickets are $20 for the videos of the Home Tour and Artisans at work, as well as the Q & A Zoom.
