OHU50K NOTES

Although the realtor does not have a valid build date for this airplane bungalow, airplane bungalows, born out of the Arts and Crafts Movement, date from the early 20th century.  They resemble Craftsman bungalows, but the airplane bungalow features a “pop up” second floor room or two, similar to a cockpit of an airplane that affords panoramic views.

At the time these homes were being built, airplanes often had a cockpit atop the fuselage. Since it resembled a cockpit, they began calling these Airplane Bungalows.

Another theory of the name airplane bungalow predates flying. Some suggest that the second-story open windows created a pleasant draft in the summer months from which flowed a plane of air throughout the house.

Although one we featured in Perry, Florida, recently sold, OHU50K does not often see airplane bungalows under our price constraints. Despite this home’s location in a commercial district, you have to give it points for its hardwood floors, fireplace, built-ins and original kitchen cupboards.
