Property description

This is a classic Cape Cod summer house with lots of character and charm, including antique furnishings, period architectural details, original Provincetown art, 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. 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1996

About the owner: After renting this house for four years (1992-96) the lady whose family had owned it since 1901 agreed to sell. It was as quintessential Cape Cod as you could find, and had been very well maintained down through the years but, luckily, not "improved."

Why the Owner Chose Provincetown, MA, USA:
Many houses in Provincetown sit on small lots and are in noisy areas, particularly when the bars close at 1AM. This house is in the East End, on a nice-sized tree-shaded lot in a quiet residential area that is still within an easy walk or bike ride to and from the town center.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can see from the photos that this house on the outside looks like it has its entire life. If you know the 1950's song "Old Cape Cod" by Patti Page, and you'd like to spend your vacation in the place she describes, this is the house to rent.
