  • Clean and simple detailing on the exterior is reminiscent of antique Capes while modifications were made to suit modern conveniences making this house plan uniquely its own. The large center chimney, simple front entryway with transom and symmetrical window layout are all important characteristics of a well proportioned, early American Cape. Most importantly, this plan accomplishes a significant size increase without sacrificing the character, coziness and human scale of the design.
  • A connector branches left off the main house providing heated access to the carriage shed. By entering through the farmer’s porch, the ell contains a three quarter bathroom, mudroom entry area with closets and a separate laundry room. A heated stairway leads from the ell up into a large 594 square foot bonus room above the garage perfect for a studio, office or exercise room.
  • Also on the first floor is the spacious master suite with a large walk-in closet and cathedral ceiling. The gracious master bathroom with whirlpool and separate shower has an airy feeling with a liberal use of windows and optional high ceiling, which can be left open to the peak.
  • The second floor offers a surprising amount of space. At the top of the stairs is a sizable landing which acts as a common sitting area and is lit by a large skylight. The three bedrooms on this level, all with large closets, share a spacious, full bath with dual vanity and skylight.
