Chill in the PTown Birthplace of an Arctic Explorer for $1.6M

New, 3 comments


Behold, our official Juno-Blizzard of 2015-Snowpocalypse-it's wicked windy, so glad we still have power-Snowmageddon and oh-so-apropos listing: the Provincetown birthplace of arctic explorer Commander Donald B. MacMillan.

The 6BR, 3.5BA sits on a .1 acre lot at 524 Commercial Street, just down the road from yesterday's heaping of Gingerbread. Here's how the listing sums up the 3,000-square-footer:

This 1850 original antique has been completely rebuilt in conjunction with Provincetown historic codes. Details seen from the front and public way have been painstakingly repaired or replaced. The home is now totally rebuilt and renovated to the highest standards using top grade materials and incorporating many modern amenities. Included in the 3000sf contemporary design is a first floor open living plan, a finished basement, and three bedrooms with en suite baths upstairs. The property last sold in December 2011 for $650,000 and returned to market, post nip/tuck, in February 2014 looking for $1,725,000. Alas, the PriceChopper has since sent a chill through the ask three times, leaving the historic abode hoping for $1,599,000.
