BEKS Condominium (Unit 5).
Somewhat nondescript in the facade it presents to the town square, Unit 5 is by far the most conspicuous element of the BEKS Condominium from the waterside. Three steep gables create a stripped-down neo-Gothic silhouette. One can only imagine the views from within. A couple from Santa Fe bought the unit from the BEKS Limited Partnership in 1996 for $255,000, and sold it four years later, for $500,000, to a buyer from Dallas. He sold it six months later for $590,000 to Alix L. L. Ritchie, the founding publisher of The Provincetown Banner, giving her control of three units in the condo. Ritchie sold this unit for $900,000 in mid-2002 to a couple from Stony Point, N.Y. (She would soon thereafter buy Unit 4 next door.) They sold it in 2007, for $1,325,000 to a Chicago couple, who sold it in turn five years later to another Chicago couple, for $930,000.
