Hopefuly these posts will provide a bit of respite from the daily covid-19 focus. Provincetown is quietly greeting the first days of spring, as we social distance and find apprpriate diversions. Throughout this experience I will keep bringing you real estate news and interesting real estate related stories.

This is another pastel that we have by Bradley Dehner from 1983. It is a view from the Franklin Street – Race Road intersection up the hill toward Bradford Street in the West End. What a wonderful repesentation of the traditonal Cape style of houses so prevalent here. From left to right is 42, 44, 46 and 48 Franklin Street.

Here we are 37 years later. #42 on the far left is a three unit condo association, with the additional two units added in the rear of the main house. Unit B sold in 2015 for $485K, and is a one bedroom two bath condo with 626 square feet. The picture below is #B from the rear of the property Hard to believe this exists behind the traditional Cape house that you see from the street.

Pilgrims Landing is a 9 lot subdivision at the very beginning of Commercial Street being developed at what is know as the Murchison Estate. There are two building lots #8 and #9 on Commercial Street and 6 house lots in the gated section of the development. It looks like lot #2  is being built now and when done will be is one of the most dramatic homes in town. It is so exciting to see such a modernist home being built.  Of course the Murchison house, otherwise know as the Gropius House stands atop the subdivision and is lot #7, is one of the most incredible examples of modernist architecture anywhere.
