FEATURE HOME – The Modern California Bungalow

A contemporary home with nostalgic reminders of a bygone era and professional work from home space.

Completed: 2023  |  Location: Traralgon, Victoria


Inspired by the owners love of California Bungalow style homes, our drafting team designed this contemporary custom home to be a family home with professional work space, and reflect the style and character loved by the owners.

The home features a classic porch entry, high ceilings, three generous bedrooms, an office, and a large family kitchen with open-plan living, plus north facing sun-room at the rear with more living, dining and outdoor cooking space.

The surprise in this home is a professional workspace with custom designed salon, and separate entry and powder room to the main living area – perfect for clients to use and not interrupt the home.

Design elements such as building materials, window design, finishes throughout, and sun-room area at the rear of the home with sloped ceiling (similar to a filled in old style porch) work together to create a warm home with hints of the bungalow style, that invites you to relax and feel at home.


"Virtue Homes design team's task was to create a classic home that exuded a long-established charm, inspired by the Australian Californian Bungalow style and incorporating modern living amenities. The outcome is a residence that seamlessly blends contemporary functionality with nostalgic reminders of a bygone era."  

~ Ross Marchetti, Design Manager
