One expression of the Colonial Revival style that proved popular with emerging suburbanites was the Cape Cod style cottage. A derivative of true colonial-era New England cottages, these 20th-century interpretations typically are one-and-a-half stories tall with a side-gable roofline. While the overall core of the house adhered to a symmetrical layout, often porches or secondary extensions or wings were added for greater square footage. This Heathwood Cape Cod features a detailed Georgian doorway with grouped Doric columns, a multi-paned transom, and Chippendale style porch railings.
