About My Bungalow


We are in the process of purchasing this house in the midtown area of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, but I am not sure of the style. I know it was built in 1931, and the Realtor calls it a "rancher," although I thought the rancher style didn't start until the late 40's.

Favorite Details


I just love the charm that an old house exudes. I love the beautiful hardwood floors, the built in cabinets, the arch of the doorway, the molding. I'm sure I will find more things to love when we actually move in...

Congratulations on the purchase of your new home! I can see why your Realtor called the house a Rancher, but the interior details suggest the Bungalow.
