Design snapshot: Cape crusade

I saw this little house along the coast of Cape Cod and was instantly smitten. It’s a true Cape -- no dormers, no additions, just a simple charmer. Its prominent cedar roof and asymmetrically-placed, modest, double-hung windows lend it a hardy, no-nonsense character. A three-row band of staggered shingle coursing within a field of standard shingle coursing subtly declares this Cape’s individuality. The colorful, informal, front garden and casual, shell-lined, entry path are suitably uncomplicated. This is the essence of authentic New England at its best. This, to me, is the good life.
