Welcome to my dream home . . . the charming Cape Cod! My personal dream home is a cottage-style where traditional elements are married with warmth and charm. A big front porch for welcoming family and friends is a must!
October to early April is the Cape’s off-season, and what many don’t know is that the exorbitant prices for accommodations fall precipitously during this time. Despite what the low prices may suggest, there are plenty of things to do in the winter – without the crowds of the summer tourist season.
Cape Cod. 1880-1960. This is a subtype of the Colonial Revival style and was popular throughout the same period though it peaked from 1920 to 1960. Once the simplest type of small New England home, the Cape Cod is seen in almost every neighborhood. The principal advantage of the Cape Cod was its small size and economy. Where a larger Colonial Revival was out of reach for many a young couple or first time buyer, the Cape Cod was often relatively affordable.
