  • This Early Cape house plan reflects the proportions and detailing of capes built in the mid 1700’s. Its street façade is simple and symmetrical with four windows, a plank door with transom and large center chimney. Despite their simplicity, antique capes have a particular charm and coziness that result from their proportion and human scale. With austere exterior trim elements and divided light windows, this quaint design captures both character and quality, uncommon in new home construction .
  • This home benefits from bright, open interior spaces and is popular with empty-nesters with a first floor master suite with large walk-in closet and master bath.
  • An open living room and dining area flow into the large kitchen with walk-in pantry. Two angled fireplaces face the living room and kitchen. A farmer’s porch off the kitchen leads to a screened porch with separate entry, providing a protective space to enjoy the outdoors.
  • The functional mudroom ell houses a half bath, laundry facilities and additional storage.
  • The second floor has two well-proportioned bedrooms and a full bathroom.
  • The attached garage is purposefully small to keep it in scale with the house yet adequate for two full-sized cars. A lean-to shed off the garage further breaks down its scale and provides additional storage.
  • The 594 square foot bonus room above the garage is expanded by the story-and-a-half wall and access is gained through a heated stairwell that leads from the connector.
