This small Craftsman-style bungalow in Corvallis, Oregon, was built in 1915. It may only have 2 bedrooms and 1,200 square feet, but it sold me with its original character and charm, starting with the front porch. Take a look…
A Cozy Craftsman Bungalow in Corvallis
One of my favorite things about Craftsman-style homes are the doors. This one has stained glass in the insets, which I haven’t seen very often.
The listing said:
“One of Corvallis, Oregon’s most admired bungalows on the market in the lovingly restored condition it has always deserved. Perfect location with south facing, light-filled front porch in beautiful, sought after downtown neighborhood.”
Gotta love built-ins like these.
And thank goodness no one painted the woodwork!
I especially like the built-in china cabinet in the dining room:
The kitchen is kind of a white-out, though. Begging for some color, don’t you think?
The cozy breakfast nook with bench seating is small but charming:

My daughter’s school just called the first Snow Day of the year (already!). My poor pup was so startled when she ran outside this morning and saw all that white stuff that she turned around and ran straight back into the house. I don’t think she’s ready for winter weather yet, either. I think this calls for some hot chocolate! 🙂
