Cape Cod House #3

The original Colonial-era Cape Cod homes did not have garages. Colonial Revival Cape Cod houses became popular beginning in the 1930s. A few of the San Pedro Cape Cods have attached garages including this one and Cape Cod House #2.

Some of the traditional Cape Cod elements on this home are:

  • Steep roof with side gables
  • Small roof overhang
  • Made of wood and covered in wide clapboard
  • Large chimney
  • Symmetrical appearance with door in center
  • Dormers for space, light, and ventilation
  • Multi-paned, double-hung windows
  • Shutters
  • Little exterior ornamentation
