Clingstone

I just recently discovered this magical stunner of a historical house in Rhode Island's Narragansett Bay. Appropriately called Clingstone the 103 year old house is lovingly maintained through a tradition of the 'Clingstone Work Weekends' in which the friends and family of the residents pitch in on 'to do' tasks...tasks like washing all 65 of the picture windows in and out.

Originally found online via a post in The New York Times Home & Garden Section called 'On the Rocks!' (Great title...)

Have a look at photographer Erik Jacobs website for even more spectacular photos like this one, and this one that really give an additional visual insight into the spirit of the house.
