The Most Reliable and Familiar Type of Home: Bungalows for Sale in Mississauga

 

While there have been many trends in housing in recent years, including the "McMansion,” the "just-big-enough” movement, the "faux chateau,” the eco-friendly home, and more, many people are returning to the most reliable and familiar of Canadian homes, the bungalow. With simple lines and a single storey, the bungalow is a perfect place to raise a family, or to find respite from the busy world. But what exactly is a bungalow? Although the word has apparently been in use since 1676, when it was used to describe houses built in the Bengal style, it seems that "bungalow” can describe almost any one-storey house. A typical bungalow has a low-pitched gable roof or a hipped roof, overhanging eaves, and a wide front porch. Although we may think of a bungalow as economical in size, today’s homes with that description can be very spacious. With this as a guide, it’s easy to see that the description "bungalow” can be applied to a wide variety of homes. Mississauga boasts many different types of bungalows – so you’re sure to find one that will suit your family perfectly!
