23rd Bungalow Heaven Home Tour
Sunday, April 29. 2012  10 am to 4 pm

Tucked in the deep shade of the California Oaks that line its streets is a little bit of paradise, Bungalow Heaven residents say. On April 29, visitors will experience the aura for themselves as they stroll through Pasadena's first Landmark District, touring several exquisite Arts & Crafts-era homes. The neighborhood is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.

Hundreds of Craftsman-style houses, known as California bungalows, were constructed in the neighborhood between 1905 and 1925. The architecture reflected a movement away from ornate Victorian sensibilities to simpler structures in harmony with nature through the use of materials such as river rock and redwood shingles, and by including wide verandas and expansive windows.

Bungalow Heaven, in central-northeast Pasadena, California, is considered to have one of the largest collections of Craftsman homes anywhere in the United States. Many of the homes maintain the authentic Arts & Crafts style, including the Mission-style furniture and d├ęcor of the period.

Eight homes are included in the 2012 tour. During the self-guided tour of the historic neighborhood and home interiors, docents will be on hand to offer commentary and answer questions. One of the homes included will be a "Living History" tour, with actors portraying homeowners of the period.

There will also be a Bungalow Heaven Historical Photo presentation & lecture given by resident Julianna Delgado, co-author with John Ripley of a newly published book on the subject.

Bungalow Heaven is located north of the 210 Freeway, between Lake and Hill avenues. It is bordered on the north and south by Washington and Orange Grove boulevards.
