OK, the MLS category called "Cape Cod" is usually filled with cute little brick houses with two dormer windows on the second floor. Well, for the last week and a day on Cape Cod, I've been in search of that house. And it isn't here.
First, I've yet to see a brick house! They are almost all constructed out of shake shingles, sort of like this -
And it took a very long walk to find one in Chatham that had the cute little dormers -
These are typical of the Cape Cod cottage, though not necessarily the typical Cape Cod house. There is some amazing history around here, and some amazing new additions to the local architecture. And I'm off to snap some of these WOW houses after I go to the beach!
But bottom line, no bricks.
