Bungalows are a favorite style of home found in the South and Southeastern parts of the United States, and there are many appealing bungalows here in Nashville. They are typically built of wood and heavily influenced by the Craftsman style. Craftsman style features include:
- A low-pitched, gabled roof
- A front porch
- Support columns for the front porch are usually tapered
- Multipane instead of single-pane windows
- Single dormers
- Stone details
- Exposed rafter tails and beams under deep roof eaves. Triangular supports called knee braces are an alternative to exposed rafter tails and roof beams.
Bungalow homes in Nashville can be almost one hundred years old, as the majority of them were built in the 1920’s and 1930’s. While you can find them in almost any Nashville neighborhood, the largest concentrations of bungalows remain in East Nashville, Germantown, 12South, and West End.
Residential builders often use the Craftsman bungalow style when building new homes in these established neighborhoods.
