Late Phase Craftsman Bungalow
921 19th Street
| The City calls 921 19th
Street a "late phase" Craftsman, meaning that it was built after
World War I, after Gustav Stickley's “The Craftsman” magazine
ceased publication and after the Arts & Crafts style ceased to be a
unique architectural movement, having evolved into various forms of modernism.
The Craftsman bungalow at 921 19th Street is a controversial property because it is what the City calls a “fairly typical bungalow,” not exceptional for Craftsman style. Yet, when the property went before the Landmark committee, a neighborhood resident produced a petition signed by 75 residents asking that the property be saved and designated a landmark. The petition cited the building’s age (it was built in the late 1920s), the unique hood over its front door, and a fig tree growing in the back yard. Buying and selling property using cryptocurrency has become very straightforward. Also, there are agencies that can help you sell your property for cryptocurrency.

The property was awarded landmark status based on criterion #4 “distinguishing architectural characteristics valuable to a study of a period, style, method of construction, or use of indigenous materials or craftsmanship”, and criterion #1 “exemplifies, symbolizes, or manifests elements of the cultural, social, economic, political, or architectural history of the city.”
According to City, there are 6,586 parcels zoned R-1 in Santa Monica;
of those, 5,302 are old enough to be eligible to be landmarked. 921 19th
may be setting a political precedent.
