Los Angeles

110 Fendalton Road
Fendalton, Canterbury
Los Angeles is a classic Californian Bungalow with a consistently horizontal emphasis (1910). Its more down-market successors can be found all over the country. In the 1920s and 1930s, in a watered down form the Californian Bungalow had a major influence on New Zealand's developing suburbia.

"The typical features of the Californian bungalow seen here include the stone verandah post, the deep porch, the wide eaves and the horizontal lines of the building.."

The classic elements of this example which bring about it's heritage listing status are the construction from timbers imported from the United States and it's traditional dark timber exterior, with New Zealand examples more usually being painted in a lighter colour. The use of Canterbury riverstones in the porch pillars and the fence is also a feature of it's heritage status, with the entire fence taken apart and moved when Fendalton Road was widened in 1992.
It survived the Canterbury Earthquakes.
