Curb Appeal: Cape Cod

This two-story home with Cape Cod style has timeless appeal thanks to a front porch framed by columns. And yet, the driveway still manages to steal the show; its grass block pavers create a cool, geometric display that lures cars from the road and into the garage.

Cape Cod Style Exterior and Driveway

This Cape Cod style 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.

Brick Front Porch With Rocking Chairs

This front porch invites friends and conversation with two handsome rocking chairs in modern black.

Wood Bridge and Sitting Area

A foot bridge arcs up and over this backyard's small creek and leads to a shaded, quiet sitting area. Lemonade and friends optional.

Pool and Large Pavers

Pavers become a dynamic part of this backyard's display, the different shapes highlighted by grass borders.

Pool and Raised Hot Tub With Hill View

The entire back side of this yard is open to the view, meaning swims and hot tub lounging come with a breathtaking backdrop.

Brick Patio WithWhite Armchairs

Plush armchairs beg to be cozied up in with a good book and an iced tea. To make an outdoor space especially inviting, use elements more often found indoors, like comfortable furniture, pillows and rugs.

Covered Patio With Brick Fireplace

This covered patio seems to sit as high as the hills, with no fences or hedges to hinder the view. A large brick fireplace keeps things toasty; a chandelier keeps them fancy.

Brick Patio and Topiary

Texture does the main job of filling this patio with visual appeal...that and the incredible view! The patio's brick trim is contrasted by large pavers and grass. Wicker dining chairs are shaded by a white pergola. And a sculptural topiary stands at attention nearby.

Brick Outdoor Kitchen With Pergola

This outdoor kitchen's brick foundation makes a striking contrast against the stainless steel appliances, and ties the space with other parts of the patio for a cohesive look.
