Provincetown house description

This is a classic Cape Cod summer house with lots of character and charm, including antique furnishings, period architectural details, original Provincetown art, painted wide-board floors, and an outdoor shower. The owner of Leeward Cottage has added a new well-equipped upscale kitchen, plus two new Kohler-fixtured bathrooms. The house includes four double bedrooms, one with an additional single bed, plus a quiet cozy twin-bedded 'birthing room.' Situated on a roomy protected lot set back on Bradford Street in the middle East End, with a white picket fence, a Chinese maple tree out front, and perennial gardens all around, this unique historic house is one short block from the Provincetown harbor beach, and within an easy 15-minute walk of the town center.


The updated kitchen has white beadboard cupboards with soapstone countertops, a stainless steel professional-type five-burner gas stove with gas oven and warming drawer, a stainless steel dishwasher, recessed stainless steel refrigerator with ice maker, filtered ice water dispenser, and freezer. There is also a new stainless steel microwave oven. A sound system connects to built-in speakers in the kitchen, dining room and upstairs bathroom.
A 48-inch square dining room table seats four people generously. Add two leaves and you can seat eight. Blue Willow dinnerware and a wide choice of wine, beer and drinking glasses and coffee mugs are provided, with a large kitchen drawer full of every other utensil you are likely to need. In the morning doors open onto either side of the property allowing you to enjoy the sun, songbirds and garden views along with your breakfast. In the evening a gas grill is available on the patio just outside.

          • The queen-bedded room downstairs with a brass bed was formerly a second parlor. It has one door opening into the little-used front hall, and a second to the dining room. Off the living room is a small rear-facing room found in many Cape-style houses of this era called the 'birthing room.' Protected from nearly all sounds inside and out, this very quiet room has a comfortable bed on a Hollywood frame. The three upstairs bedrooms are about equal in size. All have painted brass-and-iron double beds with new mattresses. One room also has a single roll-away bed with new futon mattress. All the bedrooms are completely separated from one another, so there's no issue with privacy. The house can be fully occupied and everyone will still feel they have their own space....moreless

Upstairs, off a hallway which runs between the front and back stairs, is a second full bath. It includes the original clawfooted tub with new hand held shower array, Shaker-style vanity and sink with Kohler polished nickel fixtures, a newly-created subway-tiled shower with steam unit and built-in bench seat for one person, and a comfort height Kohler toilet. There is a stool to accommodate a snug second person in the steam shower if desired. Just outside the upstairs bathroom is a front-loading washer and propane gas clothes dryer....moreless
