Contemporary Homes on the Cape & Islands

The architecture found on the Cape and Islands varies quite a bit. Of course you will find the beloved, classic Cape and Colonial styles, but you’ll see many others if you keep your eye out. There are the Mansard, Federal and Greek Revival styles, and if you make it out to Martha’s Vineyard, you’ll see the playful “gingerbread houses” of the Carpenter Gothic style.

The Cape and Islands also have a flair for the more modern, however. Here are a few homes with large windows, soaring ceilings, interesting rooflines, and minimalist designs. Behold, “Olde Cape Cod” has stepped into modern times!

About Jennie Sparrow

About Jennie Sparrow: A true Cape Codder, born and raised, I am thrilled to call Cape Cod my home. I have been with WeNeedaVacation since 2017 and am grateful that my position at WeNeedaVacation has offered me the opportunity to combine my love for the area with my passion for marketing. My favorite pastime is driving onto Nauset's outer beach with my family where I'm happiest feeling the sun on my face and the sand between my toes!
