What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Capes Across America
In New England, Cape Cod houses were often built quite small, just two or three rooms downstairs and two rooms upstairs. These houses would then be expanded to the sides and back with small and large additions to accommodate the owner's needs. Growing over time in this way infused these houses with a sense of history, with walls and roofs and floors telling the story of their inhabitants.
Element: A steeply pitched roof with side gables. This is one of the most consistent characteristics of this style. How to make it your own: Originally designed to prevent the buildup of snow and ice, these steeply pitched roofs are very practical in cold climates, regardless of the style of home.

Exteriors - Way too much uninterrupted steep pitched roofline. If a house looks like a face, this one has a very big forehead.
