Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We have loved Provincetown and owned property or rented summers for over twenty here five years and for sixteen years have vacationed here yearly with our adopted Russian son. We are both educational professionals living in Boston who have come to feel Provincetown is a second home.. The author Michael Cunningham in his homage to Provincetown 'Lands End' put it well, it is a piece of geography and a social culture utterly unique and unto itself!.

Why the Owner Chose Provincetown, MA, USA:
The 19th century amenity of a wide country porch means that in the summer time one can dine , read and entertain outside, Our unit is part of a small complex of three other condos most of them owner occupied year round so the property is beautifully maintained and landscaped with care. We wanted to create a space that was distinctive and welcoming and did not feel like a cookie cutter summer rental. So the house has furniture and furnishings that are beautiful and that we wanted to share with quests - from a roll top desk in the master bedroom and a corner cabinet in the living room built by my great grandfather; to a library of summer reading that includes Provincetown poets and authors like Mark Doty and Mary Oliver, to the novels you may have always wanted to read your way through - Armistead Maupin to all seven volumes of Harry Potter!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We fell in love with this quaint old house sitting on its hospitable front porch , looking down the slope covered with beach plum and hydrangia and across to a moor. Alden Street is a quiet little traveled narrow street that bends around the rolling colonial graveyard to Shankpainter road so it has a country feel to it. Remarkably however one is so close to the heart of town that one can hear the chimes from city hall and walk to restaurants, bars and cabarets in an easy 8 minute stroll. It is particularly accessible to Macmillan Wharf and the Boston-Provincetown Ferry so there is little need for a car to get here or get around upon arriving. One can pick up the town shuttle to go to the beach. Close to the lively summer scene, and yet even in high season one is living a bucolic serenity. Rent off season and you have a cozy hide away only minutes from Napi's - the town's favorite year round restaurant,
