Cape Cod On Vanderbilt

Here you can see all those clustered windows from the outside! Note the cluster of three windows (with eyebrow above), which is tradition for the colonial American look. Those two stone chimneys are really something special! They’re built with a special type of stone only found on the east coast.

Lakewood has never seen anything like this!

On a street filled with identical houses, this gorgeous home takes a stand against conformity. Built in the style of the classic New England houses around Cape Cod, this sprawling colonial home exemplifies a style rarely seen in Texas.

The family who now owns this home contracted the architectural masters over at Maestri LLC specifically to design something different, something unique, something that would stand out in a sea of homes that all seem to mimic each other. We teamed with Maestri LLC to make that dream a reality, using their gorgeous designs to bring a little piece of Cape Cod to Texas.

And just like New England, this house has it’s own unique style. With clustered windows, exterior port ceilings, and gorgeous white columns, this house glistens with light. And light is the name of the game—every room is brilliantly lit. The bright, airy, open design is perfect for this young, growing family.

Other major features include stained cedar shake cladding and multiple dormer-style roofs. This house is like nothing else in the neighborhood—it towers above the competition, reminding viewers of the colonial days of early America.

But don’t take our word for it—look for yourself!

The bathroom has a cute bit of personalization—the glass in the wood door has the letters WC etched into it (for water closet of course!)
  3. Vaulted ceilings in the children’s room amplify the natural lighting from the grouped windows. The ladder in the foreground leads to something every child dreams of—a secret play area!
