New to market in Provincetown: the waterfront digs of the late Pulitzer Prize winning author, filmmaker, founder of The Village Voice, and New York City mayoral candidate Norman Mailer. The renaissance man began spending time in Provincetown in the 1940s and purchased 627 Commercial Street in 1986. Mailer lived in the waterfront home until his death in 2007 and is buried just blocks away in the town cemetery.
The brick five bedroom with four and a half baths was built in 1930 overlooking Provincetown Harbor and Long Point. The 5,800 square foot residence sits on a .22 acre lot and features over 100-feet of waterside deck. Most recently, The Norman Mailer Center was running workshops and programs out of the house, but will begin hosting seminars in Brooklyn Heights (where Mailer had a more, um, infamous abode) in August. The nine Mailer children are asking $3,900,000 for the authorial abode.
