Modernized 1980s Cape Cod Colonial Home

This family home is beautiful and attainable, and the perfect twist on suburban charm. The family – a couple with four little kids – managed to turn an older home in the suburbs into a modern rustic haven, full of warmth and charming spaces. I’m totally smitten. Suburbia never looked so good.

“We wanted this home to feel like it had been here for 100 years. The architecture is strangely unsuburbian. It’s very classic.”

The exposed beams, arched doorways, fireplaces, molding treatments and built-ins are all original to the home and perfectly classic. The fresh coat of white paint, white kitchen subway tiles, and modern fixtures, keep the home fresh and chic.
