Home Styles

Massachusetts is home to some of the oldest housing inventory in our nation. The North Shore has some of the finest examples of original styles of homes first built; Saltbox, Cape Cod Cottage, and Colonial just to name a few. So how savvy are you when it comes to house styles? Do you know the difference between a Bungalow and a Cape? Or a Condominium and a Co-Op?
