he early 20th century was an era of business expansion and progressive reform in the United States. San Diego, for example, rode a population boom, which led to a spike in creating houses for the working class, especially in mid-city neighborhoods like North Park, Golden Hill, University, and Normal Heights.
This blog shows a fine example of Progressive Era housing geared toward the middle class. Here is a project that has recently come up for sale--three units on one lot in San Diego’s North Park. The asking price for all three: $1,425,000. These multi-unit bungalow courts are popular as owner-occupied and rental investments. Bungalow courts are everywhere in North Park as this neighborhood had its biggest Progressive Era housing boom from 1900-1930.
Bungalow 1 is a 1 BD/1 BA with a front porch, wood floors, in-unit laundry & private rear tiled patio with storage shed. This unit is vacant and move-in ready.
Bungalow 2 is a 1 BD/1 BA with a front porch, wood floors, in-unit laundry & private fenced garden. This unit is also vacant and move-in ready.
