There’s something cozy and magical about strolling down the walkway—no street, no cars in sight—with tidy lawns and entry paths leading up to historical California bungalows. Right, left, ahead, behind. It’s Bungalow Heaven.
In 2009, the American Planning Association has listed Bungalow Heaven as one of the “ten great places in America” and this neighborhood is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
This is a self-guided tour. Guests are invited to roam the interiors of several homes led by docents.
Outside will have demonstrations of restoration work, music, Bungalow Heaven’s “famous” homemade cookies and lemonade. Food trucks will be on site as well with beverages and food for purchase.
This year’s theme is “It’s All in the Details,” celebrating “beautiful wood, tile, concrete, and brick that skilled artisans used in Bungalow Heaven’s many characteristic Arts & Crafts-era, Spanish Revival, and English-style homes.” Other architectural styles include Colonial Revival, Queen Anne, and Gothic Revival.
The Bungalow Heaven trolley offers 45-minute narrated tours, every hour from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. for $10.
