William A. Bowen House (Greene & Greene)




With the Bowen House, the Greenes wanted to design a rustic ranch-like retreat. It was a one-story L shaped plan and it took inspiration from the California Hacienda style that the Greenes used in the Bandini house. The Bowen House had a storehouse, a chicken house, and a corral. It had two bedrooms, which opened only to the outdoors, and one that opened to the outdoors but also the rest of the house. The L-shaped window bays allowed for natural light to enter the principal rooms and provided interior window seats. The Greenes finished the home around 1905
