A Cape Cod house is a low, broad, single-story frame building with a moderately steep pitched gabled roof, a large central chimney, and very little ornamentation (wikipedia). Cape Cod architecture began centuries before in colonial New England. Original colonial houses in New England are more often 2 stories than the traditional 1 story homes we call Cape Cod.
This house design is symmetrical and simple with a dominant, angled roofline, dormer windows, clapboard siding and double-hung windows flanked by shutters. For you who love this style, we bring you our collection of 50 Traditional Cape Cod House Exterior Ideas. Hope this collection will inspire you!
