The Clingstone

I was scoring my way through the New York Times this morning {hence this mornings post based on this article} and found myself lost in the Home and Garden section {I know, completely shocking ;)}. I found this breath taking 103 year old home in Rhode Island and just had to share it with you! 
The 'Clingstone' was purchased in 1961 for {get ready} $3 600 after being empty for two decades. 
Talk about focussing on your relationships! You better like who you're sharing this space with!
Although the many windows through out appear to boast some of the most breath taking views.. There's no way in the world that I could ever stay here by myself... There's something about this property that's either super magical or the perfect setting for a Stephen King thriller... with no one to hear my screams!
haha...okay perhaps a little dramatic! What do you think? Dreamy or Dungeony?

  1. I think it's gorgeous! RI is such a pretty state :-) I wouldn't want to live their full-time, but it'd be a wonderful vacation spot!

  2. that place is beautiful. i'd love to spend even just a day there!

  3. I think it's pretty, although my taste does normally stray towards lighter spaces.

  4. a. i think i'd be scared to death if the fog rolled in. plus i'm terrified of jaws and prolly wouldn't get a wink having convinced myself that he was coming up through the floor. or was that orca that was out for revenge. damn i'm terrified just thinking about it!!

    b. that being said i might visit because, you're right, it's either wispy or horror.

    c. i'm thinking i might need to snag that bird necklace!! thx for thinkin of me :)xoxo


  5. Beautiful, how amazing it'll be to be able to live there, LOVE!!! xoxo

  6. Beautiful pictures, but no thank you!


  7. I think it would be dreamy during the day, but dungeony as soon as the sun goes down! Still, it's such a unique space and I always love to see unique homes. It's fun to see people who appreciate where they live enough to really make it their own. :)

  8. that house made my heart ache, can you imagine living there, with the water around you! !!

  9. That house would be such a dream to live in! But, you're right, it's the perfect setting for a horror flick!

  10. Wow! I've actually seen this house someplace else before and can't help but admit that it sort of gives me the chills.... gorgeous and interesting, definitely, but would I want to sleep there? Only if it's filled with my closest friends and family -- all of whom have to love and want only the best in mind for me and everyone else in the house that night :/
    Thanks for your sweet, sweet comment :) Love your blog!

  11. Oh my gosh - I saw this too and absolutely fell in love! I agree that it wouldn't be good for an extended period of time, but it sure is dreamy for a bit :)


  12. i am absolutely in love with this space. gorgeous in a really incredible way.

  13. "super magical or the perfect setting for a Stephen King thriller" - hilarious and just what I was thinking! I could do, say, a summer there but forget winter. I think it helps that you can see the shoreline from the house.

  14. Lovely blog!
    I would like to invite you to mine - I think you will really like it :))
    Also, the main reason for my invitation is that I want to invite you to join my Challenge - just click on the link at the very top of my left sidebar and see what it is - I hope you will find it exciting :)
    In any case - I hope you enjoy my blog and of course feel free to follow me if you do! ;)

    Much love,

  15. I would miss the rolling hills, trees and wildlife too much!

  16. This place is incredible!! Though now that you mention it, totally scary if you were there by your lonesome!!

  17. surreal and beautiful... can i move in?

  18. this house is so mysterious and interesting...I would love to visit but only for a short period of time! I would go stir crazy!

  19. I think I would feel to isolated living there all the time...would be nice to visit though...

  20. Ms.ChirpyBird, you and I think alike! I was just taking pics at a crazy place, near my home, that I was going to post tomorrow. It's an area of old ramshackle homes about 100 years old.
    This house, you've so smartly shared with us, is amazing. I don't know if I could live there either....may be a little domestic turbulence if I did ;)
    Great post!

  21. Oh my gosh, this place is amazing!
    Like you said the view are breath taking...
    Let's no go on the price.;-D

  22. i absolutely love this house! And since I live in RI I could actually go see it. I think I wouldn't mind living here as it's by the ocean.

  23. Love the house, it's really pretty. I only wouldn't live there. Think it would be scary.

  24. absolutely dreamy... i think i am in love
