Property description

Offering rare privacy, 'Farfalla Hill' is located on 5 acres of woodland in the East End of Provincetown at the edge of the Gallery District. Magnificent views of Cape Cod Bay are easily seen from both floors of this house.

Set back from Bradford St. on a private drive, you'll still only be 2 short blocks from the bay, a 2 minute walk to the Provincetown Theater, a 5 minute walk to the gallery district and East End restaurants, and a 10-15 minute walk (or quick bike ride) to town center.

This home was recently designed and built by the owner, a furniture-maker and sculptor. Traditional architectural detailing, stonework, and woodwork create an atmosphere of relaxed luxury. As you enter through the custom tiled foyer, a wide stairway immediately invites you up to a large open room on the 2nd floor. Massive wood trusses support a cathedral ceiling lending a lodge-like character to the open-plan living, dining, and kitchen areas. Beautiful views of Cape Cod Bay, framed by grand oak trees are seen to the South. The 18 windows in this room open to the prevailing breezes that come in over the water.

A large rustic stone fireplace, exposed wooden roof beams, and a 5'-6' grand piano grace the living area. The generous gourmet kitchen has stone counter tops and modern appliances. The dining area seats 8-10. A large deck offers even more expansive bay views.

Three bedrooms are on the first floor level and include a master suite with attached large custom tiled bathroom and walk-in dressing area. Doors from each of the bedrooms lead out to the deck that surrounds the outside the first floor level. An outdoor shower is tucked into the corner next to the stone chimney.

The laundry room, also on the first floor, has a full size washer and dryer.

Parking for four to five cars.

From the Chamber of Commerce Website:

Located at the very tip of Cape Cod, Provincetown has a life uniquely its own, steeped in history dating back and beyond the Pilgrims’ First Landing in 1620 and the Mayflower Compact, but alive today with a cosmopolitan community renowned internationally for its diversity and cultural sophistication.

In spite of almost 300 years of community life, Provincetown still looks and feels like a remote fishing village in a deep-water harbor. Once one of the most productive whaling and fishing ports on the East Coast, today it is homeport to the whale watching fleet closest to Stellwagan National Marine Sanctuary.

Families today come in all shapes and sizes, be it traditional families, single-parented families, adoptive families or families with same sex parents. Provincetown nurtures and welcomes all families by offering a plethora of unique activities for families to enjoy together.

Almost three-quarters of Provincetown is preserved in its wilderness state as part of the Cape Cod National Seashore Park. The Park provides visitors access to magnificent ocean beaches, nature bike trails and exhibits.

Provincetown is also the Cape’s pre-eminent destination for gay and lesbian visitors and residents, proud of its long heritage of a fully open and integrated way of life. Carnival week in August is one of Provincetown’s biggest events. Come join the Parade!

Although Provincetown is a regional public transportation hub with fast ferry, bus and air service from Boston and frequent local shuttle service, it is first and foremost a walking town. Come see!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: I live and work right near Farfalla Hill. Since I am local, I deal with guests directly – from key exchanges, to cleaning, to repairs, and anything in between. I try to be responsive to all of my renters needs. The house is fully furnished and has all the amenities of home!

Why the Owner Chose Provincetown, MA, USA:
I purchased this 5 acre parcel of land in 1995 and have designed and built 4 custom houses here. My experience as a furniture designer/maker has enabled me give special attention to the finishes and detailing of the houses. There is a three house compound at the bottom of the hill. See HomeAway 178210, 178211, and 129971 for details. 'Farfalla Hill' is located a few hundred feet away at the top of the hill.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Rare privacy in Provincetown. Yet close to all of the action in town.
