True to its New England roots, this Cape Cod house plan displays an array of exterior features that have graced America’s landscape for hundreds of years. A siding façade and shuttered windows give this home a simplistic look, characteristic of the style. The steeply sloped roof with side-end gables and charming dormers replicate the homes of long ago, designed to withstand the stormy weather of the New England seaboard. But don’t be fooled, Cape Cod home plans like this one are now commonly found throughout out the United States and Canada from coastal areas to the Great Plains.
Now take a look inside. The side-lighted entry welcomes all where the foyer greets guests. The formal living and dining rooms are positioned at the front of the home offering the ideal arrangement for entertaining and hosting special dinner parties. A fire place anchors the living room and a notable chimney highlights the exterior. The casual gathering areas are positioned at the back of the home. The open floor plan encourages conversation and relaxation while delivering efficient family living. Take a look at the gas fireplace and the rear porch with sliding door access from the family room. Notice the strategic positioning of the kitchen serving both the dining room and nook with ease. The 2-car, side-entry garage holds the laundry facilities. A private bath enhances the first floor master bedroom. Upstairs, two family bedrooms boast double closets and enjoy the views from the dormer windows.
