On the Market: A Splashy and Contemporary Provincetown Manor
From the chartreuse ceilings to the ring-shaped roof deck, this three-story Cape Cod home is equal parts fun and sophisticated.
3 Bayberry Ave., Provincetown
Size: 4,650 square feet
With close to an acre of space, three levels, and more than 4,000 square feet, this contemporary manor is mammoth by any measure, let alone by quaint Provincetown cottage standards. It’s not just the size, though—from the angled facade to the 100-plus windows, it’s a one-of-a-kind creation, dreamed up by architect David Davis. Don’t expect any drab design or vanilla style upon entering the home, either. Oak floors stained black show off the saturation of the high lacquer paint that splashes across the ceilings of several rooms in shades of chartreuse and royal blue.
Head to the kitchen to see one such ceiling, which corresponds with the bright blue tiled backsplash that runs along the granite counters and into the butler’s pantry. As modern as the eat-in is, it contains a handy old-school feature: A dumbwaiter travels down to the garage and up to the master bedroom’s closet on the second floor. Grab your grub and take a seat at the table in the double-height dining room to fully appreciate the scale of the 20-foot ceilings, or bring a cup of coffee over to the office. Housed in the silo section of the house, the circular workspace boasts a ring of windows. The views from the office—or any of the sun-filled rooms, for that matter—are already remarkable, but the best seat in the house has to be atop the contemporary turret. A rounded roof-deck brandishes 360-degree vistas of Provincetown, over to Herring Cove Beach, and down to the in-ground pool and patio directly below.
