Provincetown MA Real Estate

The Town of Provincetown was incorporated in 1727, but its history begins much earlier since its well protected harbor offered excellent protection from storms. The European explorer Gosnold recorded a stop in Provincetown as early as 1602 and the harbor was the site of the first landing of the Mayflower. The Pilgrims signed the Mayflower compact in the harbor, to codify the way in which they were going to administer the new colony they intended to establish.

Although rich fishing grounds resulted in the seasonal leasing of fisheries with licenses granted for bass, mackerel and cod fishing, the first permanent settlement didn't take place until 1700. Provincetown grew very slowly during the 18th century and its population fluctuated with the price of fish. Farming was of secondary importance and aside from the fishing industry, there were only some salt works and one mill. After the Revolution, the town boomed and its population rose 276.6% between 1790 and 1830.

Despite its relative lack of good farm land, by the middle of the 19th century, Provincetown had developed as the prime maritime, fishing and commercial center of the Cape. The Civil War, which destroyed so much New England business, only provided more markets for Provincetown's fish. Portuguese sailors, picked up by American ships in the Azores and Cape Verde Islands to fill out their crews, came to Provincetown to live and additional Portuguese immigrants had moved to town by the 19th century to work on the whaling boats and coastal fishing vessels. In 1875, there were 25 coastwise and 36 ocean vessels operating in town, more than any community in the state including Boston.

Provincetown was a bustling place with all of the ancillary maritime businesses operating, such as ship chandlers, shipwrights, sail makers, caulkers, riggers and blacksmiths. Today, the wealth of preserved historic buildings combines with the lure of the sea to support a huge tourist and summer home industry.

Imagine a time before antique homes were ''rehabilitated'' or ''renovated.'' Imagine discovering an untouched jewel, sparkling quietly in Provincetown's coveted east end Commercial Street neighborhood of Captain's homes, boathouses, beach cottages and sandy lanes. There is still one of those hard to find gems remaining, an untouched sprawling home, once several residences in one, on a large parcel of land with a private, enclosed rear garden, home to a two storey Carriage House and a broad front yard, with the expanded antique Cape set comfortably back from Commercial Street with a view to the bay. The main house offers 11 rooms, period correct with pantry, closets, nooks, crannies, double doors, wood flooring, original staircases and details at every turn, a surprise of antiquity with every glance paid. The bonus Carriage House in the back garden is ripe for conversion to a spacious artist's studio, home office, writing studio or gracious guest quarters. You won't be disappointed if you are a connoisseur of old Cape Cod style and New England architecture. Secure this untouched masterpiece today to preserve it for generations to come. You'll be proud to call this legacy property your home and you'll be the envy of your neighbors and a respected contributor to the very limited inventory of preserved antique Provincetown historic homes.
