From seaside to suburbs, countryside to city limits, Cape Cod homes are instantly recognizable just about anywhere. Its popular structure and established identity resonate across the country through variations on those iconic features.
Cape Cod homes are one-and-a-half stories, simple in shape and surrounded by a nostalgic aura. My listing located at 1317 Tyrol Trail is a classic, all-brick move-in ready home. Steeply gabled roofs with sloping eaves, a central chimney, and windows and dormers framing the front door – these are the unmistakable style features of a Cape Cod home. It is timeless, both classic and contemporary, and bestirs those “home sweet home” memories.
Says Lisa Hassler of Historic Homes Cape Cod in Massachusetts, “Over the years, Capes have effortlessly adapted to architectural trends without sacrificing their underlying charm. Even the more refined Greek Revival adaptations have a certain unprepossessing, humble air. The Cape-style home is the apple pie of the architectural world.”
