7 Creek Round Hill Road, Provincetown (2008), by David W. Dunlap.Because Creek Round Hill Road runs along a ridge with spectacular views over the Herring Cove marshlands, several of its houses are Janus-faced: domestically scaled in the side they present to the street, with broad, glassy, geometric facades on the water side that allow occupants to take in the panorama. The photo above, by Mary Ahern, was taken in the 1980s and shows how commanding a position No. 7 enjoyed and how witty the division is between the two sides, as if half of the 2,200-square-foot house had simply been sliced off. It was built in 1985 and designed by Thomas P. Sokol (1950-1993), a partner in Dion & Sokol of Sudbury, who lived here until his death from AIDS at 43. • Assessor’s Online Survey ¶ Updated 2014-05-02
