To switch it up a bit, today we are featuring two modest Oakland bungalows. Both are in need of a bit of work, but both, likewise have a lot of nice original detail left to work with. They are in different neighborhoods, but they appear to have been last painted at around the same time – a time when avocado green was the color du jour.

The first home is in the Seminary neighborhood of East Oakland just below Mills College. The home is an interesting Spanish colonial revival bungalow with some Viennese secessionist flourishes around the front door and window. Inside, the home is more purely bungalow, with the typical dark wood trim and built-ins.

The second home is in the Longfellow neighborhood in Northwest Oakland. It is a standard double gable bungalow form with lap siding. Inside, it is also full of great original woodwork and a nice collection of period light fixtures as well.
