sometimes a house isn't just a house
The street where I live
The Cape Cod style is a a type of house and since this is Cape Cod, well, examples abound. To me, it's hard to know, but I guess it's this thing of steep roofs, this somewhat symmetrical air - there's a sort of simple, nostalgic beauty in it I suppose. A hillside full of them's certainly a lovely thing to see..
Up close you see the difference of course. Some really are very basic.
Some are a bit grander, and whimsical in their choice of colour
Kind of like boy house and girl house
Some suggest they are owned by long lost relatives of mine, for obvious reasons ;) (hint - note shape of gate)
While some, are still works in progress...
