House Lust: Two Block Island Homes Square Off
Two seaside island homes offer the perfect destinations for leisurely living.
There’s something calming about being on island time. It starts when you’re headed over on the ferry, when the salty sea breeze caresses your skin and only intensifies when you set foot on the island. And then, you feel a sense of relaxation wash over you. With this week’s two featured houses, you can experience this sensation all summer long.
