The designers were very careful to pay close attention to Cape Cod style and details when choosing every aspect of HGTV Dream Home 2015’s front yard. Rather than a paved driveway, a traditional pea-gravel drive adds to the home’s New England style.
This Cape Cod home's outdoor areas incorporate lots of stately brick details, crisply contrasted by bright white. The driveway, seen here, uses the same paver-plus-grass layout as found in the backyard's patios.
“We have a very large back patio, and we have a seating area there and a large dining area with an umbrella,” says HGTV Dream Home 2015 designer Linda Woodrum. “It’s just a very peaceful, private outside space that’s comfortable, inviting and another place to live.”
With a sold price of just under a cool million, this Seattle Cape Cod is one of the larger houseboats located on Lake Union. We love the adorable porch, which is the perfect spot to load in and paddle off.
A trim, curving, red brick patio is just the right size for a row of Adirondack chairs strategically placed to the enjoy this beautiful waterfront view. The Cape Cod-style home rests on a lushly landscaped estate on Massachusetts' Chapoquoit Island. Hydrangea bushes line the rear of the house, enhancing the picturesque vista.
