Every Week, Curbed Comparisons breaks down what you can get at the same price point, style or size in five different Cape and Islands neighborhoods. This week, properties asking $995K.
Let's begin in Provincetown, at 1 Fortuna Road, where we find a three bedroom, three bath contemporary with views of Cape Cod Bay. The 2,822 sq. ft. was built in 1985 and features a newly renovated kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. According to the brokerbabble, the living room " is highlighted by an artist inspired wood burning fireplace." We take it they're referring to the shell design in the brickwork. Moving on, there are exposed beams, skylights, hardwood floors and wood stoves in both the master suite and lower level. Up on the roof, the deck offers views of the Bay, dunes and the Atlantic. The listing last changed hands in February 2005 for $1.03M and the property returned to the market in May 2008 asking $1.495M. Five pricechops and one priceupper have the listing at the current ask of $995K.

The 1,456 sq. ft. residence was built in 1935 and features waterviews from all rooms plus an oversized deck. According to the brokerbabble, "the new dock can accomodate several large boats." They probably don't mean the QE2, but either way, there's access to Vineyard Sound.
