The official name for this “concierge condominium” complex is Seashore Point. But you’ll often hear it called the Manor — “She’s up at the Manor these days, God love her” — since it supplanted and eventually replaced the Cape End Manor, a municipal nursing home that was built on this site in 1980 to replace the facility at 26 Alden. In 2006, management of the Manor was transferred from the town to Deaconess Abundant Life Communities and ground was broken on the first 43 units of Seashore Point, designed by EGA Architects. The first residents, Dr. Richard and Barbara Keating of Truro, arrived in 2008. The final 38 units of the project were completed in 2014. — From Building Provincetown.
“At the manor” is where many townsfolk close out their years. The Cape End Manor Nursing Home, a 28-bed successor to the facility at 26 Alden Street, opened in 1980. In 2006, management was transferred from the town to the Deaconess Abundant Life Communities and ground was broken on the 81-apartment Seashore Point in Provincetown, for those 55 and older. The architect was Gerald Menke of Newburyport, Mass. The first residents, Dr. Richard Keating and Barbara Keating of Truro, arrived in 2008.
