The Cape May

3 - 7 Bedrooms     3 - 5 Bathrooms      2,500+ Square Feet

While sharing the livability and flexibility of our Chesapeake plan, the Cape May distinguishes itself with a stately double porch, accessible upstairs through French doors from the luxurious master suite and downstairs via the dining room and the living room/study.  With the master at the front of the house, the two rear bedrooms share a convenient Jack & Jill bathroom.

The Cape May I

Architect's Notes

The gable-fronted folkhouse type developed in the Eastern seaside towns where lot width was at a premium. It was carried across the country, and grew is size as it was freed from the urban constraints This stately profile appears here in a Victorian incarnation, as might be seen in the historic Victorian seaside resort of Cape May. The double porch, with simple Carpenter Gothic details, lends a decorative flourish of this classic Vernacular type. The french doors and casement windows opening onto the porch help blur the line between interior and exterior, a sought-after feature for these beach towns.

The Cape May II - Classic

The Cape May III - Savannah

Architect's Notes

The classic American porch, often referred to as a veranda prior to World War II, was the center of social interaction. The Cape May III is graced by a traditional double-height porch, a staple of Southern small towns. The Greek Revival detailing, with corner pilasters supporting a pedimented gable, was also ubiquitous in the South. The french doors opening onto the veranda were favored in the pre-air-conditioner era for the refreshing whole house breezes and ample light they offered.
