I am pretty protective of my own privacy and do take into consideration the privacy of others when I post blog photos but really, nothing is more fun than house snooping, especially when the new builds going up around us are beyond spectacular. This is serious money building. Oh, and by the way Obama, guess what? They DID build that!
I’ve blogged about this house a few times already, the people across the road thought they would have a lifelong unobstructed view of the ocean. Apparently not anymore. Probably one of the most beautiful lots in all of town that had been pasture as long as Mr. EOS can remember, and he’s pretty long in the tooth. It’s a double edge sword to see once pristine long pastureland become a home but honestly, the new builds here are owners who understand the town, get that it’s a very simple community so even though they build whopper houses, they are tasteful, at least I think so.
And by unobstructed views for this family, I mean killer, nothing is in you way forever, see the Elizabeth Islands, see the Vineyard – see the cargo ships…oh my.
Around the bend, another HUUUUUUUUGE house is going up on a promontory that was up for sale a few years back for a cool $12m. I don’t know what it eventually sold for but hey, more power to the people who bought it and are now mid-construction of one uber fabulous house. And if you think house one has killer views, this one, high up on a crest, well, they ain’t exactly looking at neighbors to their left and right. Water water everywhere.
I am in LOVE with the windows they chose as well as all the trim work. It’s the correct shape gambrel, the stone fireplace is perfection and well, yes, I could live there in a pinch.
It was a perfect day for a long walk – the sun is bright and the clouds like art work. Just a quick end thought – many of you know the town we are in in RI but you’ll note I never mention it by name. I like to keep it that way, for no other reason than that’s my preference. I appreciate your understanding. Happy Hump day.
