Classic Cape Cod

During the 1930s and 1940s loads of Cape Cods were being built all across America. These small economical, and practical houses were originally developed in New England in the 17th century. They typically have a steep roof with side gables, are 1-1/2 stories in height, are symmetrical, have shutters and a central fireplace. Yep, after doing a little research on the classic cape cod, this house is definitely a classic example of a cape cod.

This house was built in 1940 and had an bedroom addition added to the east and a mudroom added to the back.

The upper floor has 2 bedrooms and a central bathroom.

The back of the house has a large shed dormer.
