Cape

Symmetry and simplicity reign with this modest New England style. You'll find side gables on the outside, cozy efficiency on the inside and comfy charm all over. Shutters and window boxes add curb appeal.

Cape Style Notes

  • Originating in New England, Capes were built to withstand the stormy, stark weather often experienced in this coastal area
  • Drawing from colonial designs and architected with simplicity and symmetry in mind with a central front door surround by windows
  • Touches of textured siding like shake and trim are the perfect accents to this unassuming design
  • Front doors and dormers are two major focal points

Often referred to as the “classic American cottage,” the Cape Cod is a design that dates back to the 1600s. It thrives in simplicity and grows its curb appeal with the simplest of details, from window boxes to garden paths. You’ll frequently find it flanked by windows, topped by dormers and always emanating its old-fashioned, practical New England charm.
