Dunlap.The workshop and former garage that comes with the 6 Pearl Street property was built in the early to mid-20th century, according to the Historic District Survey. Edward “Ted” Chapin and Torrence C. Boone purchased it in 2000 from the Souza family. By tearing down the small ell in the front of the structure, as pictured below (before and after), they were able to add floor area to the main house. And it enabled them to create an open yard with a small koi pond. “It just worked a lot better sculpturally,” Chapin told Life in Provincetown magazine in 2003. • Historic District SurveyAssessor’s Online Database ¶ Posted 2013-06-01

  1. Again, I’ve always wanted to have a look inside, but I am respectful of private property. The pond is lovely and the interior is all I could imagine. I love the aerie!!

    Thanks for this.

  2. For decades, 6 Pearl was home to Anthony Souza, a font of local knowledge and a violin builder. A popular series of artist portraits from the 70s or 80s shows Anthony with one of his violins. In his later years, and after a beloved dog passed, he began to accumulate newspapers and junk, as old men will, and became “Old Man Anthony.” But that was just a brief portion of his long Provincetown life.
