Aeroplane Bungalow Showcased at Conservancy Fundraiser Next Month
By Lookout Staff
May 15, 2018 -- A unique style of bungalow dating back to the early years of air travel will be showcased during the Santa Monica Conservancy's Annual Fundraising Salon on Sunday, June 10.
The fundraiser, which takes place from 3 to 5 p.m., will be held at a 1912 "aeroplane Craftsman bungalow," a style that became popular less than ten years after the Wright Brothers' first sustained flight at Kitty Hawk.
"Exquisitely restored, this landmark north of Montana Avenue is a rare variant of Craftsman design in Santa Monica, featuring a small second story that resembles the cockpit of an antique aircraft," Conservancy officials said.
Similar in style to the Craftsman Bungalow, the Airplane Bungalow, which usually has one or two rooms on the "pop-up" floor, can be found along the West Coast and in the western parts of Canada.
The house was restored by Anitra and Alan Eskovitz, who bought the property in 2013, event organizers said.
"All the woodwork had been painted white, the floors were sagging and the original wiring was still in use," organizers said.
The Eskovitzes were presented with a preservation award from the Conservancy in 2017.
The fundraiser includes a tour of the house, a talk by the couple and a full spread of appetizers and wine.
"Proceeds from this annual event are critical to the Conservancy’s mission and programs," officials said.
Tickets are $150 for Conservancy members and $175 for the public.
Those who plan to attend can register online by June 5, or mail a check with their name, email, phone number, address and the number of tickets they'd like to purchase to the Santa Monica Conservancy at P.O. Box 653, Santa Monica, CA 90406.
