The term was first found in English from 1696, where it was used to describe bungales or hovells in India for English sailors of the East India Company. Later it became used for the spacious homes or official lodgings of officials of the British India, and was so known in Britain and later America, where it initially had high status and exotic connotations.
An American favorite, bungalows merge organic beauty with easy living spaces, and they are perfect for small lots that are hard to build on. The origin of the bungalow-style home is found in the Bengal region, where traditional architectural principles called for smaller homes with low roofs and breezy porches to help stay comfortable in the heat and humidity of South Asia.
Bungalow colony : A special use of the term bungalow developed in the greater New York City area, between the 1930s and 1970s, to denote a cluster of small rental summer homes, usually in the Catskill Mountains in the area known as the Borscht Belt. First- and second-generation Jewish-American families were especially likely to rent such homes. The old bungalow colonies continue to exist in the Catskills, and are occupied today chiefly by Hasidic Jews.
Many villages and seaside resorts have large estates of 1960s bungalows, usually occupied by retired people. The typical 1930s bungalow is square in plan, with those of the 1960s more likely to be oblong. It is rare for the term bungalow to be used in British English to denote a dwelling having other than a single storey, in which case chalet bungalow, (see below) is used.
