The Sutton's Classic Cape Cod Feel


A Charter team member shares her love for the Sutton which begins with an American classic design. 

What I appreciate most about the Sutton is its similarities with the American classic design of the Cape Cod. The architecture reminds me of my home town in Connecticut. In New England, Cape Cods were prevalent - designed to withstand stormy, coastal weather. The design is symmetrical with a centered door flanked by windows and a steep pitched roof with end gables. The modern additions that Charter includes like dormers and a front porch bring life to a typically plain Cape Cod.


The interior is a mirror of the exterior as they are both very simple and natural. Historically, the Cape Cod was designed to blend into the landscape. The Sutton is similar in that its use of materials and design elements doesn't compete but rather complements the neighborhood. The simple and natural elements carry into the home with an open and spacious floorplan. The main spaces being the kitchen, breakfast room and great room create one big gathering place. The Sutton's first floor owner's retreat with full, private bath and second floor with two additional bedrooms and full bath make the floor plan adaptable to any home buyer looking for easy, simple and classic modern living.
