Behind the classical three-quarter Cape facade of a Long Point floater at No. 47 is the coolly modern home of Jon Goode and his husband, Cary Raymond, who have lived here since 2004. Goode established the Bodybody menswear store in 1979 and owned it until 1992. Theirs is one of three condo units created in what was once the homestead of the Pleasant View Farm, a dairy farm operated by John and Mary (Souza) King. Before mechanical refrigeration, an outpost as remote as Provincetown needed a high concentration of dairy farms. The property had been purchased in 1876 by Rita (Gaspa) King and Joseph King, a whaler and fisherman from Faial in the Azores. John got out of the farming business in 1924, later serving as selectman and town assessor. His daughter, Dorothy (King) LaFalce, and her husband, Theodore, lived here through the 1990s.
