32 Nelson Avenue

32 Nelson Avenue, Provincetown (2013), by David W. Dunlap. 
James D. Cole, Provincetown. Gately McHoul Funeral Home.In a development full of understated houses, some of which began their lives as trailers, No. 32 stands out as an architectural statement — in a wood-frame, crazy-angle, nothing-quite-straight sort of Provincetown way. The house was built in 1971. It was purchased in 1997 by Bruce L. Moidell (b 1950), proprietor of the Lopes Square Variety Store, 307 Commercial Street. He shared it with his husband, James D. Cole (1943-2011), who worked in the town supermarket in its incarnations as an A&P, Grand Union and Stop & Shop. Cole (pictured) sat on the board of the Provincetown Public Library and sang in the Cape Cod Chorale. The house has been owned since 2012 by Jim Vogel, an architect, and Rob Anderson, a professor of architectural history and owner of PtownTours.comAssessor’s Online Database ¶ Updated 2013-05-18
