Car: Not Necessary

The house is located on 34 Pearl Street. It is a block and a half from the bay and Commercial Street, and a couple of houses up from the Fine Arts Work Center. It is centrally located with a large, private yard on a residential street close to the center of town, yet without the foot and car traffic. From 34 Pearl, one can walk to gallery openings, restaurants and shops, as well as to the beach. With a bicycle, access to the nearby bike trails and Beech Forest make for a beautiful outing. For a longer outing, walk or ride the full length of town and cross the scenic Provincetown breakwater with a lunch for a swim and picnic on Long Point. Also in close proximity to the house are two high-quality small grocery and take out food places (the Farland and Bradford Natural Market) so no car is necessary. It is a short walk from MacMillan Wharf where the PTown Ferry arrives, with many restaurants less than a couple of blocks away, such as Napi's. A peaceful and enjoyable place to stay.

Other Activities: National Seashore and Ocean - Walking and Riding on the Dunes

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1926

Why the Owner Chose Provincetown, MA, USA:
From Building Provincetown, "This beautifully situated and relatively intact full Cape was constructed in the early 19th century. “Located well away from the waterfront, this property likely served as a small farmstead,” Tom Boland wrote in the Historic District Survey. At the turn of the 20th century, Boland noted, the house belonged to George O. Knowles, namesake of the wharf at 381-383 Commercial Street, at the foot of Pearl Street. What has almost undoubtedly accounted for its fine state of preservation since then is its ownership by a single family, the Bakers, since 1926. Benjamin Alton Baker (±1872-1952) was born in Wellfleet but spent most of his life in Provincetown, where he worked as an agent for the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railfoad and also, in the 1940s, as custodian of the Pilgrim Monument. His wife, Madge (MacDonald) Baker (d 1950), had been born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Her sister Wilhelmina (d 1948) was also a Provincetown resident, married to John Bert Bangs. The Bakers had a son, Edward M. Baker, to whom they transferred the property in 1945. He was married to Alice B. Baker. They lived in New York City and in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. It was in New York City that their son, Robert A. “Bob” Baker (1939-2007), was born. After spending many summers in Provincetown, Bob became a permanent resident in 1960 and opened a store called Bob Baker: Furniture Maker. Thirty-four Pearl Street is now owned by the fourth generation of Bakers, Bob’s children: Andus D. Baker and Saphira M. Baker.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Read a recent email from a guest, "I just wanted to follow up and let you know how much our group truly enjoyed staying at 34 Pearl Street. Not only was the house spacious and accommodating – the added layer of staying in an exceptionally historic home made the vacation that much more special. Every little feature – from the fireplaces, to the steep stairs gave the home character that’s difficult to find. And the location was beyond perfect – we were just close enough to the hustle and bustle of Commercial Street – yet with enough distance to enjoy solitude and silence. And like others before us – relaxing in the huge yard was a daily relaxing ritual. "
