We have some great local artists works that show our neighborhood from decades ago. It’s been fun to overlay our current real estate lens over them. Bradley Dehner is the artist of the pastel below, which is from 1981. It is the view west on Tremont Street to the intersection of West Vine Street.
Looking at the same view now, The Willows condominiums at 25 Tremont Street are on the right consisting of thirteen units in seven buildings.
Unit 2 recently sold for $795K and was a two bedroom two bath condo with 1,572 square feet. The condominium complex was developed in 1996.
The building immediately past 25 Tremont Street in the pastel is 14 West Vine Street. Unit 2 in that four unit condo complex sold in 2019 for $685K. It has two bedrooms and two baths and 679 square feet.
Check out what is now Telgraph Hill at the top of the pastel with nothing but a few bare trees and a bunch of scrub brush. The house at the top of the hill to the left is 6 Telegraph Hill which sold for $3.6M in 2018 and has three bedrooms, six baths and 5,508 square feet.
A development and constuction review of the last six months.
This post is a compilation of my favorite “Studs to Shingles” blog entries of the past few months. I have selected the most interesting projects – some are completed, some are mid-construction and others are in the early stages of construction.
These projects represent the broad range of building and development happening in Provincetown. The diversity of style and location speaks to the heightened level of real estate choices in town.
As we look to the upcoming 2020 season, I hope to see you in town. In the meantime, you can follow my posts on my blog – jongoode.com – for ongoing updates.” JON
