Capt. William W. “Billy” King (±1932-1976) of the F/V Patricia Marie and his wife, Patricia Marie King (b ±1934), bought this house in 1961 from Richard E. and Lorraine Adams. They lived here with their six children. The Patricia Marie was lost while scalloping off Pollock Rip on 24 October 1976. Captain King and six crew members, all Provincetown men, went down with her. It was the worst such catastrophe in the modern era, devastating this close-knit community. Almost no corner of town life was untouched by the absence of these men or the presence of their widows and their fatherless children. More history »

Victor DeCarlo (1916-1973) was, as were so many in Provincetown, a product of the Art Students League of New York.

The DeCarlos bought this property from Antonio and Patricia L. Silva in 1965. More pictures and history»
This sweet cottage is an especially poignant place for my husband and me. It was where we spent our last week before the terrorist attacks of 2001 transformed American life, and so it will always seem like the embodiment of a lost age. At the time we stayed here, 21 Point Street was part of Westwinds on Gull Hill, 28 Commercial Street, run by Roger M. Hanzes (b 1941). We knew even before we departed, on 8 September 2001, a day after I made the sketch above, that we wouldn’t be returning the next season.
Hanzes told us that after 18 years of the grueling bed-and-breakfast routine, he planned to sell the main property and make this cottage his home. We were awfully disappointed, since it seemed to be just about the perfect place to stay. “This is truly our ‘little home, just meant for two,'” I wrote in my journal shortly after our arrival, More pictures and history»
Like 21 Point Street, this parcel is a remnant of the Westwinds at Gull Hill complex, 28 Commercial Street. The condominium was created in 2002. J.

In 2012, Town Moderator Mary-Jo Avellar appointed Grobleski to the Finance Committee, or FinCom. • Map • Assessor’s Online Database ¶ Posted 2013-07-21
In the era of Jaguars and Maseratis, thank God for a utilitarian roadside garage. It looks more beautiful with every passing year, and it certainly is becoming rarer. The garage can be clearly seen in a photograph of 21 Point Street taken almost 40 years ago by Josephine Del Deo. Like No. 21, it’s owned by Roger M. Hanzes. • Map • Assessor’s Online Database ¶ Posted 2013-07-21
The end of Point Street feels very much like an exclusive neighborhood of million-dollar-plus homes. The newest of these was constructed in 2002 for Michael A. Abdella and Nicholas J.

Daniel P. Petrucci (b 1963), former senior vice president and managing directior of Boston Capital Energy and the founder and president of Link2, a limited liability company that provides “guidance, vision and development services to organizations seeking to understand their choices and implement sustainable energy and land-use solutions,” bought this property in 1999. The seller was Anthony Arakelian, as president and treasure of Land’s End at Gull Hill Inc. The house was built that year. Petrucci lives here with his partner, Hans Hoppenbrouwers (b 1969), an artist whose work is shown in the inset photo. More history»
Almost like one-way glass, this is one of those enviably private properties that seem to command a view of the entire Cape tip while remaining all but invisible from the surrounding streets and roads. Several long decks, at multiple levels, take particular advantage of its exceptional location. It was constructed in 1975, according to town records. David L. Jarrett, an equity analyst on Wall Street, a photographer and an art collector, purchased it two years later.
Jarrett’s interest in photography can be traced to his years at the University of Colorado, where he was the chief photographer for the Coloradan yearbook. In the 1980s, while living here, he returned to camerawork in earnest. More pictures and history»
