It is traditionally characterized by a low, broad frame building, generally a story and a half high, with a steep, pitched roof with end gables, a large central chimney and very little ornamentation. Traditional Cape Cod houses were very simple: symmetrically designed with a central front door surrounded by two multi-paned windows on each side. Homes were designed to withstand the stormy, stark weather of the Massachusetts coast. Modern Cape Cod architecture still draws from colonial designs.

Symmetrical layout is always key. Traditionally, Cape Cod-style houses have a symmetrical appearance with the door in the center. This home’s double chimneys accentuate the symmetry, as do the broad porch and dramatic front steps.
Dormers punctuate the steep roof lines of many Cape Cod-style homes, adding floor space to the modest area tucked under the roof. The most common design is a gabled dormer, which features a simple pitched roof with two sloping sides
Shutters–a common feature of traditional, Colonial-Era Cape Cod houses–dress up the exterior of this home, as do flowers and a white
Charming Cape Cod-A stone walkway leads to the front door of this simple yet charming Cape Cod. A single, hefty dormer adds architectural interest and more interior floor space on the upper level.
