232 Bradford Street

Provincetown Bungalow Haven

A glimpse up the hillside might persuade you that some great Arts-and-Crafts Adirondack lodge had drifted down to the Cape, but then you realize it’s too crisp to be an antique. In fact, Richard P. “Rick” Wrigley‘s home was constructed above a complex called Provincetown Bungalow Haven, which includes four other houses that evoke both Stick and Shingle styles. One is a private dwelling. The others — Porch House, Treeviews and Bungalow — can be rented.

All were designed by Wrigley, a well-known furniture maker (represented in the Smithsonian American Art Museum) who acknowledges the tension in his work between artistry and craft. “I want it to be beautiful,” he said in a 2001 interview, “but it has to be functional.”

  1. Richard … Could you call me about whether you have one of the garages for rent? One way or the other? thank you … 508.237.6342 … I have a client who I’m trying to help out as he diesn’t yet live here year round, but will soon be retiring and buying a property in Provincetown.
