The Cape Collection! 90+ Greater Boston Homes for Sale Feat. Cape Cod-Style Architecture

Mid-century modern. Greek revival. Victorian. When you picture the different styles of home architecture, one that may come to mind is the Cape Cod-style house

A name that evokes thoughts of sandy, wind-swept beaches and ocean waters. While Cape Cod was the birthplace of this home style, not every Cape Cod-style home has to necessarily be housed along the water.

The Cape style home originated in Cape Cod as a sturdy, simple home that allowed the colonists to weather the cold winters they encountered. The homes’ unique features served practical purposes: including the gabled roofs to shed snow, the low ceilings to conserve heat, and the picturesque shutters to guard against the winds.




Cape Cod homes are usually distinguishable with the following features:

  • Symmetrical appearance with a centered front entry

  • Steep roofs with side gables and an overhang

  • Shingle siding

  • Gabled dormers

  • Double-hung windows with shutters

  • Centralized chimneys

  • 1 or 1.5 stories

  • Low ceilings

  • Symmetrical layout with center hall

  • Clean lines with little aesthetic detailing
