Cape Cod house designs date back to mid-17th century New England. Cape Cod style homes withstood rugged coastal weather, and many expanded for growing families. With the rise of wealth in America, grander homes took the place of the simple style of the Cape Cod home. During the Depression, when cost was of utmost importance, New England style houses regained popularity and graced the American landscape. Cape Cod floor plans are symmetrical and have 1-1 ½ stories. They have shutters that block wind and rain, but now are decorative items to maintain the original look. Borrowing from Greek style, columns adorn the wide front porch. A Cape Cod home's timeless design adds a touch of charm to any neighborhood.
