Walking up the wooden steps to this second-story Provincetown condo, you’ll notice a metal plaque adhered to one of the stairs that reads “The Boat House.” Finish the ascent and that nameplate will make complete sense. A terrace wraps around the unit like a ship’s deck, and those views don’t disappear when you head inside. High-reaching, vaulted ceilings with pine beams frame the living room, allowing for a towering wall of windows. All that glass brings surreal Cape Cod Bay vistas into the home, effectively giving the impression of being on a boat.

The many windows also have the welcome side effect of saturating the open-concept living area in sunlight, including the lofted office space. Up a wooden ladder, the elevated alcove is cordoned off by a boating rope railing and boasts a couple of skylights of its own. Luckily for households with two members working from home, that’s not the only designated workspace. There’s another room with a built-in desk and shelves downstairs, which quickly converts into a second bedroom when you pull down the nifty Murphy bed.

Vertical shiplap graces the walls of the other, more spacious bedroom which, along with the sliding glass door that steps out onto the waterfront deck, lends an emphatically nautical feel to the serene room. And the water isn’t this home’s only noteworthy neighbor—Pulitzer prize-winning author Michael Cunningham also owns a unit at 633 Commercial Street.
