Cape Cod Shingle Style traditional-exterior
 

Cape Cod Shingle Style

This house is an excellent example of Meyer & Meyer’s work transforming existing homes into classic New England shingle-style architecture. The owner’s program called for specific elements to be included in the design, including wraparound porches on the front of the house, a completely rebuilt second floor, and an addition to the north side that included a new master suite wing and library. The house sits on a high bluff with dramatic views of the Atlantic Ocean. The existing cottage’s foundation, chimney, and several window locations were retained. A pool house, family room and breezeway were added five years later.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Great Design Plant: Black-Eyed Susan
The bright blooms are often the primary source of yellow in a colorful cottage garden. Tip: Be sure to check the estimated mature size on the variety you choose. It can range anywhere from approximately 1 to 3 feet high. This will affect your plans for placement when you're plotting out a planting plan.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to How to Design a Colorful Flower Bed
Keep in mind how the bed fits in with your garden and helps highlight the architectural features of your house. Experiment with different shapes using a length of hose or rope until you find what you want.Whatever shape you choose, go as large as is practical. A small garden bed can feel fussy; with space to expand, the flowers can make more of an impact.

Grassy border and colorful random arrangement of flowering plants are part of the cottage design that blend with the brown shingles and lattice windows of the house.
