The Old House and the Sea

Another Interesting article from The New York Times about a 23 bedroom, 103 year old mansion in the Narragansett Bay. 


“In 1961, when Mr. Wood bought the house with his ex-wife Joan, who is also an architect, for $3,600, it had been empty for two decades. All of its 65 windows were smashed, and its slate roof was wide open to the sky. Vandals had been creative: on the second floor, the interior shingles were embedded with marbles (they still are), which had been blasted there by some sort of firearm.”


Sounds like they have a really nice community there. It’s really nice that this house is being used by people that really appreciate it, instead of it being a rich mans play thing. If only more people thought like Mr. Wood.
