Pick of the Week – Cute 1.5-Story Cape Cod in Brookside

My neighbors just listed their home for sale in Oak Meyer Gardens homeowner association in Brookside. View Listing. This is a stylishly updated three-bedroom, two-bathroom home, and it is well- priced at $199,900.

Read the excerpt below taken from the Wikipedia entry on Cape Cod homes, and see if you can identify some of the classic features in the photo below.

“A Cape Cod cottage is a style of house originating in New England in the 17th century. It is traditionally characterized by a low, broad frame building, generally a story and a half high, with a steep, pitched roof with end gables, a large central chimney and very little ornamentation. Traditional Cape Cod houses were very simple: symmetrically designed with a central front door surrounded by two multi-paned windows on each side.”
