The Cape Cod cottage is a style of house originating in New England around the 17th century.

It is traditionally characterized by a low, broad frame building, generally a story and a half high, with a steep, pitched roof with end gables, a large central chimney and very little ornamentation.

Traditional Cape Cod houses were very simple: They were designed symmetrically with a central front door surrounded by two multi-paned windows on each side.

Homes were designed to withstand the stormy, stark weather of the Massachusetts coast.

Modern Cape Cod architecture still draws from colonial designs.

Colonial Revival Cape Cod houses are very similar to Colonial Cape Cod houses, but some have the chimney at one end of the living room on the side of the house.

High end replicas were designed by traditional architects, for example Boston architect Royal Barry Wills (1895–1962).
