Many consider Cape Cod style houses to be the quintessential American home. It’s charming, timeless, and actually quite simple—yet home buyers, especially here in Durham, just can’t seem to get enough. Above all, Cape Cod homes in Durham are sturdy, well-built structures, and are distinct for their steeply pitched roofs and lower ceilings that help maintain a rather cozy vibe inside. Many home owners have also added a white picket fence around their Cape Cod home, allowing for an even more classic look and feel, not to mention irresistible curb appeal.

Cape Cod homes in Durham are extraordinarily popular thanks in large part to the character and charm most feature from top to bottom. Originating from New England, Durham Cape Cods are centered around a main fireplace and are usually only 1 or 1.5 stories, although newly built homes with this style usually have a full second floor. Traditional Cape Cod homes feature clapboard or shingles on the exterior and many originals here in Durham were built during the post-World War II building boom. Common neighborhoods in which you’ll find Durham Cape Cod homes include East Durham, Forest Hill, Trinity Park, and even a quite the selection scattered around the outskirts of downtown.
