With origins along the Atlantic coastline, Cape Cod style architecture has long evoked images of breezy beach homes and seaside living. Emerging in 17th-century Massachusetts, the style spread down northeastern shorelines as practical housing tailored to coastal weather.
Defined by signature features like sloped, gabled roofs, dormer windows, and wooden shingles, Cape Cod homes celebrate simple lines and charm. Though most associated with its northeastern origins, Cape Cod homes can now be found across America in both coastal locales and landlocked suburbs. Wherever located, this style creates a light-filled, welcoming atmosphere perfect for family living.
Tucked away on a peaceful cul-de-sac in Sandy Springs, this recently renovated five-bedroom home blends the charm of classic Cape Cod with modern conveniences across 3,800 square feet. The home’s sloped roofline, prominent dormers and shakes siding nod to its coastal influences, while an inviting front porch welcomes you inside.
Stepping into the foyer, natural sunlight fills an open and airy floorplan. The great room features soaring vaulted ceilings, which flow effortlessly into the dining area and kitchen. The gourmet chef’s kitchen features top of the line appliances and a large, quartz-countertop center island that provides additional prep space.
In the adjoining den, oversized sliding doors open to the spacious deck, enabling effortless indoor/outdoor living. A cozy fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases adds additional character to this relaxed yet refined space.
On the main level, the generous owner’s suite features a spa-like bathroom equipped with a dual-head shower and dual vanities. Upstairs, a second owner’s suite meets multi-generational living needs with its own private bedroom retreat and updated bathroom.
Two additional bedrooms, a full bathroom, and laundry room complete the second level. Below, the finished terrace level provides a large rec room, kitchenette, and fifth bedroom. A front porch and back deck extend living space and capitalize on the home’s prime cul-de-sac location.
