From about 1910 until 1930, the California Bungalow style was very popular in Australia and New Zealand. The style seems to have first been imported in Sydney and then spread throughout the Australian states and New Zealand. In South Australia, the suburb of Colonel Light Gardens contains many well-preserved bungalow developments.
The first California house dubbed a bungalow was designed by the San Francisco architect A. Page Brown for J.D. Grant in the early 1890s. A true bungalow, this one-and-a-half story residence was set on a high foundation and located on a hillside. It was a strange blend of Bengalese, Queen Anne and Swiss chalet architecture.
The concept of bungalow design has evolved through the centuries, as British colonists adapted the style for their own homes and even brought it back to England, where it was considered exotic and well-liked by the upper class.
From the East the idea spread westward. Naturally, California – in everyones mind the ultimate resort – was a promising locale for bungalows. Land was relatively cheap, and the possibility of affordable and comfortable housing was attractive to the young on the make, the sick on the mend, and the old on modest pensions.
