Bungalow Styles, Information, and Areas
What is a bungalow?
A bungalow is a convenient house style where all the living elements are on one level. That means you do not need to take any stairs to reach the general living areas. The definitions can differ depending on your location, but in Calgary, a bungalow is a property that is one storey high and all on one level. This means your kitchen, bedrooms, and living space are all on the same level.
Bungalows can have developed basements and even walkout basements in Calgary. These basements can have additional living space, bedrooms, and will usually have the utility room.
In Calgary, there are a variety of bungalow-style homes to choose from. There are luxury bungalows with sprawling floor places and modern finishes to choose from.

Bungalows were very common in Calgary in the 1940s-1980s. Fewer bungalows have been built in modern times as developers are building for families who are after more floor space, but you will still find these properties in newer areas. Most brand new communities in Calgary will have home builders that will have modern bungalow building plans for those wanting to build their own property. Builders will also have some show homes to tour, so you can get a true feeling of the bungalow before making a decision.
In recent time, there is a movement back toward bungalows as home buyers with limited mobility prefer to have all the living on one level, and some families are less interested in purchasing property solely on above grade size.
Another perk to these homes is the larger basements than some of the other home designs and newer bungalows are typically built with additional windows to increase the natural light in the basements. They can also have beautiful walkout basements making the lower level feel like a it's not a basement at all.
Some bungalow buyers are looking for condos that are 50 plus, villa style, or even in gated communities. All of these options are available in Calgary, AB.
