HGTV Ultimate House Hunt: Historic Home on Provincetown Harbor

Cape Cod Home  /  Summer 2019 /

Writer: Allyson Plessner

This historic property is not only a charming home, but a landmark positioned upon a wharf over Provincetown 

harbor with sweeping views from the Pilgrim Monument to the Truro bluffs. Built in 1911, it’s transformed from 

being Ambrose Webster’s art school to the famous Flagship restaurant where Anthony Bourdain got his culinary start. The structure and the wharf were rebuilt in 2012 under local historic and state waterfront codes as a residential property now being offered for the first time. The home maintains some of the original features of Pat Patrick’s legendary Flagship restaurant, with wide plank floors, porthole windows, and the notorious dory bar still intact.
