Modern Classic Cape Cod Style Houses

A Cape Cod house is a great choice for a practical and appealing floor plan. Cape Cod style houses are extraordinarily popular not just in Massachusetts, but all across the United States. They are so popular, in fact, that they are the default house style that children of all ages tend to create when drawing a house.

There's good reason for it. The outside look is distinctive and charming, and suits a variety of sizes from small and comfortable to spacious and grand. Inside, you'll often find tall cathedral ceilings, logical layouts of rooms, and a variety of useful features for everyday living.

With modern amenities throughout, you'll find value and lasting pride in this most classic of American home styles.

What Makes a Cape Code Style House?

The Cape Code style is defined by the simplicity and symmetry of the fundamental design. Several elements define the Cape Cod style:

  • Centrally located chimney
  • Floor plan expanding outward from there
  • Symmetrical facing
  • Centered front door
  • Level shingle siding
  • Dormer windows
  • Steep sloping, rectangular gable roofs

These elements and other details provide a classic charm that has endured since the seventeenth century.

The classic elements remain, but within these elements you'll find great variety and room for modern security and amenities.
