23 Bungalow Court – House Tour

The alley behind our house backs up to a cute little area called Bungalow Court.

Just through that arbor, there are six adorable bungalows…three on the left, facing three on the right.

I’ve always wanted to see the inside of the last one on the right, so I was pumped when I saw an “Open House” sign by the back door this weekend!

I brought my camera along so that you could snoop with me, too! 😀

Inside the front door, there’s a nice big living room:

It’s open to the kitchen and dining area:

There’s also an office, complete with tons of built-in shelves, next to the front door…

…and back by the kitchen, there’s a master bedroom and bathroom:

Our master bathroom is super tiny, so I was loving the size of that space!

There are two more (big!) bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs:

But the thing that I loved most about this house was the massive amount of storage space. There were SO many spacious closets tucked here, there, and everywhere! They even insulated the areas behind lots of the closets so that they could fit more gigantic closets in behind them. We were touring the house with our friends and their daughter (who are house hunting for real right now), and it was so funny to keep hearing, “I found another one!” throughout the house as we wandered around it. 😀

Does your home have as much closet space as you’d like for it to have? I’m definitely feeling inspired to look around our place to see if there are any more empty nooks and crannies we can make better use of!

    Happy Birthday, Layla! Wow…so cute! That “alley way” is not like they alleys in the city where I grew up! ha! Love the cleanliness of all the outdoor areas.
    Anyway…I am searching your site to see if you ever blogged about different white paints to use on walls? I’m feeling a need to crisp up the feeling in a few rooms and want a white that is warm, but not ivory and definitely not cold or stark. :) Any ideas?

    You live in such a “cozy” area. The houses are all so homey
    and have such lovely exteriors and well a interiors. Thanks for sharing with “us”.

    I would kill for those bathrooms. Seriously. Those are huge compared to what I’m living with. Not that I need huge bathrooms, but I’d certainly like a slightly larger closet space than I’m dealing with. lol

    I love the Bungalow Court idea. A simpler life, a simpler time. There are a few areas in my state where the shared courtyard idea is taking new form. What’s old is new again. And it’s a great idea honestly.

    I haven’t been by your blog in a long time, so happy belated birthday wishes.
