Sounds more like a bungalow to me. Cape Cods don't have front porches, but are simple one-storeys with the roof ridge parallel to the front side. Under that gable roof there is often a finished attic serving as a second floor; there are windows only in the end walls.
I don't understand what you mean about your house having an attic that looks like a second floor. It would help to know what kind of roof style it has. Is the "look" of a second floor done with windows? There is a style (Mansard) which has a top floor which is meant to look like NOT another floor by being covered with roofing on all sides, the top quite flat and the sides only slightly sloped.
