Cape Cod Homes
Cape Cod homes date back to the late 1600s, but were popular in the 1930s especially. They are usually one-story homes with a steep roofline, wood siding, multi-pane windows and hardwood floors. The Cape Cod house style remains popular to this day, but are made with modern build design and quality.
Colonial-style houses remain one of the most popular home styles in the United States, despite dating back to the 1800s. Colonial houses generally have two or three stories, wood facades and fireplaces. The kitchen and family room are typically on the first floor, with bedrooms on the second floor.
Popular in the early-to-mid 20th century, craftsman homes are making a strong comeback today. One of the distinguishing features of a craftsman house is interior woodwork such as built-in shelving and seating. They have low-pitched roofs, wide eave overhangs and porches framed by tapered square columns.
American architects were inspired by the medieval style of English countryside homes, so they designed these cozy cottage-style homes in the 1920s and 30s that remain popular to this day. Common features for cottage-style houses are a warm, storybook appearance, steep roof pitches, arched doors and brick, stone or stucco siding.
Traditional Ranch Homes
Traditional ranch-style homes are extremely popular across the United States and Delaware is no different. Ranch homes are known for their simple floor plans, an attached garage and efficient living spaces — all on a single story. Ranch homes were built in the 1950s and 60s in growing suburbs and the trend continues to the present day.
