Ultimate bungalow

Ultimate bungalow is a very large and detailed Craftsman style home, taking the bungalow style and interpreting it on a large scale. The style is associated with such California architects as Greene and Greene, Bernard Maybeck and Julia Morgan. Some of the hallmarks of Greene and Greene's ultimate bungalows include the use of rich tropical woods such as mahogany, ebony and teak, and generous use of inlays of wood, metal and mother-of-pearl. As in their other major projects, Charles and Henry Greene - and to a lesser extent Bernard Maybeck and a few other Craftsman-era architects who built such homes - sometimes designed the majority of furniture, textiles, fixtures and other interior details of these homes specifically for their location both in the house and in the larger landscape.

The term Ultimate bungalow was popularized by its use as a chapter title in the 1977 book "Greene & Greene, Architecture as a Fine Art" by Randall Makinson. The houses discussed in the chapter were the Greene's Robert Blacker, David Gamble, Charles Pratt, Freeman Ford, William Thorsen, Earle C. Anthony, Dr. Crow, Willam Spinks, and William Lawless residences.
