Instead, much of the real estate has been constructed in more traditional architecture, which includes Cape Cod, Ranch, and Craftsman. Any cabins in this area lean traditional in style, with vinyl siding as opposed to the typical wood exteriors.

Demorest mixes older properties and new construction homes. Recent builds are often built in Craftsman and other traditional styles, and stone is a common material in exteriors.
