A perfect Provincetown pairing in the idyllic west end. A rare find--a true waterfront compound--with a beautifully restored classic cape main house and a charming waterfront cottage. The main house, sited on Commercial Street, is a Long Point Floater, built in approximately 1850 as the home of lobster fisherman Edward Starr, and the entire compound once served as the Center for Coastal Studies. Beautifully restored to a lovely residence with two bedrooms and 2.5 baths, this is one of those special West End properties admired by all passers-by. Inside the main house you'll find a home finished in fine details from deep stained wood floors to the custom wainscoting throughout the main floor. With a fireplace as its focal point, the living space is surrounded by windows for great natural lighting. The gourmet kitchen is open and bright with white custom cabinetry, contrasting center island in blue and built-in hood over a 6-burner gas cooktop, all topped off with great unobstructed views out to the bay! The main home's two bedrooms are on the 2nd floor, each has an en-suite bath. One bedroom has multi-window views to the harbor and the other bedroom has a gas fireplace... It will be hard for you to choose your favorite! Also on the second floor, a well-designed custom built-in wall of shelves, cabinetry and desk makes for the perfect "work from home" workspace. The washer and dryer are also conveniently situated on the second floor. Leaving the main house, a bluestone walkway, flanked by beautiful perennial gardens and mature privacy hedges, leads past the private, off-street stone parking pad for two cars, to the picturesque waterfront cottage with one bedroom and 1.5 baths. Tongue and groove paneling is used throughout the cottage, befitting its seaside locale. The cottage's first floor living space is framed by stunning water views of Provincetown Harbor. French doors lead out to a deck, waterside patio, and stacked stone wall to enjoy the unobstructed harbor views straight out to Long Point Lighthouse, constant sea breezes, and the ever-changing beauty of the tides with that famous P-town light. The cottage provides a full kitchen with custom wood cabinetry and dining space. Upstairs is a giant lofted bedroom that will be your favorite spot in your seaside compound, with its amazing views of the bay and plenty of lounging space. Be sure to venture out on the attached deck with your morning coffee to see the egrets, sea gulls, and the occasional whales. Walk out your private entrance to the beach, and jump in for a swim or row out to your boat anchored only feet from your home. The dwellings are on a peak of a slight but protective hill, have been raised 4+feet and are above the velocity flood zone providing added peace of mind for your seaside lifestyle. As a whole, this one-of-a-kind West End property is a standout on so many levels, and it is one that will provide a truly unique Provincetown oasis for its next stewards.
